GUYTON — South Effingham High School was the site of the recent Mini Mustangs Camp where youngsters piled in to learn more about volleyball.
Coach Jennifer Cribbs couldn’t help but be excited about the future Mustangs in attendance.
“I love watching the excitement of them getting into it and the ability for them to learn at such a young age,” she said. “They do amazing things so early.”
Knowing kids will be interested in trying out multiple sports, Cribbs is hopeful the camp will inspire the young ladies to consider volleyball as a sport to pursue long term.
“Anytime I can try to teach them the sport I love so much, I am going to welcome them in, show them everything I know, hope that they carry it on and they grow to love it as much as I do,” Cribbs said.
The camp also served as a fundraiser for the Lady Mustangs. For Cribbs, however, it was much more .
She requires every member of the team to be in attendance so that they can interact with the children — and, of course, pass on their knowledge.
“All of the girls (on the team) have to be here because that’s who the younger girls are coming to see, and they want to learn from them,” Cribbs said. “We really enjoy these girls and how much they want to learn. I think for the eighth graders that are coming up and going to be freshmen on the team, it’s a great way to have (team bonding).”
