TASSEL Volleyball Camp

TASSEL Volleyball Camp
Jenny Niwa

A two week camp for middle school students who want to improve their volleyball skills.

Despite the summer program ending at 3:00, some middle school students stayed at school for a further 2 hours to play volleyball in the TASSEL Volleyball Camp. The camp, that has been organized every year for the past 3 years, is a popular program for students who play volleyball and want to improve their skills for their next season.  The camp was held for two weeks and through the duration of the camp, various skills were focused and fun games were played. The camp was led by student-athletes who are a part of the TASSEL group in Seisen and are planning to go to Cambodia this Summer for an independent service trip. TASSEL is an organization that aims to teach underprivileged Cambodian children English, specifically phonics while also providing them with basic necessities such as clothing. While the camp was a way for students to improve their volleyball skills, it was also a way for the rising 9th-grade class to talk to the current high school students about the high school volleyball program in Seisen, as well as for the grade 6 and 7 students to interact and get to know each other. Though the camp was only for a short duration, the improvement made by the students will most definitely be reflected in their skills when they come back for their season. It is exciting to see what these students will bring to the Seisen athletics program and their future as Seisen athletes.
