The present met the future.

Coupeville High School volleyball players joined up with Wolf coach Cory Whitmore to pull off a successful two-day skills camp for spikers in K-6.

The event, which ran Friday and Saturday, was sponsored by the Coupeville Boys and Girls Club.

It followed on the heels of a volleyball clinic earlier this month for players in grades 7-12.

Four more winners for the road.

Coupeville High School volleyball coach Cory Whitmore capped a very successful four-day skills camp Thursday, honoring a pack of Wolves for their play.

Lauren Rose, Catherine Lhamon and Hayley Fiedler were tabbed for exemplifying “spirit,” the fourth core covenant of the CHS volleyball program.

Also hailed was Eryn Wood, named the top ACES Newcomer.

In all, 13 Wolves took home awards over the course of the camp.

Previously honored were:

“Attitude” — Payton Aparicio, Zoe Trujillo, Abby Mulholland

“Competitiveness” — Mikayla Elfrank, Lita Woollet, Kylie Chernikoff

“Effort” — Scout Smith, Emma Mathusek, Kiara Contreras

The skills camp, which was open to spikers headed into grades 7-12, drew more than 50 participants.

A second clinic, for athletes in K-6, is set for June 23-24.

As the weather warms, it’s time to head into the gym.

Coupeville High School volleyball coaches are planning two events for June, bringing the game they love to kids in grades K-12.

Leading off is the first annual Wolves Volleyball Skills Camp June 12-15.

Open to students entering grades 7-12 in the fall, the camp will run 3-6 PM each day and be held in the high school gym.

Cost is $25 and payment (and proof of a physical on file with the school) need to be submitted to Jamie Easton in the CHS office by May 26.

Cash and checks made out to “Coupeville High School” are accepted.

All participants will get a camp t-shirt.

Which, since this is the first-ever camp, will one day likely be a collectible.

If you’re smart, get CHS coach Cory Whitmore and current spiker stars like Emma Smith, Hope Lodell and Ashley Menges to sign your shirt.

Raises the dollar value down the road.

Whitmore, coming off an Olympic League title in his first season at the helm of the Wolves, views the camp as the perfect way to mesh current and future players in a fun environment.

“I’m really excited about this event and hope to make it a tradition for our summer plans,” he said. “We will get some crucial summer work done in preparation for the fall season, it will serve as a program fundraiser and provide a unifying t-shirt for our middle school and high school players.”

Questions can be directed to cwhitmore@coupeville.k12.wa.us or (509) 347-6301.

Then, June 23-24, Whitmore will team with the Coupeville Boys and Girls Club to present its Summer Volleyball Camp, with separate lessons for students entering K-2 and 3-6.

Those clinics, which cost $40, run from 9 AM – 1 PM each day.

Registration needs to be done by June 2 to get a t-shirt, though, if you’re willing to forego the shirt, you can register up to the day of the camp.

For more info and to register, swing by the Boys and Girls Club (203 N. Main), call 678-5640 or email caguilar@bgcsc.org.

The Whidbey Volleyball Club needs you.

Once it’s fully up and going, the new organization will offer playing opportunities to Island players from ages 10-18.

But, as things kick off, there’s a need for coaches, equipment and places to play.

With tryouts in late Nov. and the season running through spring, the club is competing for playing space with basketball, and is looking for options outside of the high school and middle schools.

The club is also looking for organizations which would be interested in helping Whidbey Volleyball cover the costs of equipment and anyone interested in joining the coaching staff.

If you can help with any of the issues (playing space, equipment or coaches) contact whidbeyvolleyball@gmail.com today.

Cause, the community that spikes together stays together.
