MBSC’s Nike Volleyball Camp offers the finest facilities, staff, programs, and a superior instructional method that will bring your game to another level! Coined by a camper as “the everything camp,” MBSC provides its own unique teaching method that effectively covers every aspect of the game, offers a variety of fun off-field activities, and attracts campers from all over the world.
Every aspect of the game:
- Ball Handling
- Offense / Defense
- Receive Serve
- much more
Coaching Staff: Volleyball teaches patience, teamwork, working with those you may not like, dealing with success and failure, and the importance of dedication and hard work. Our camps have a responsibility to see that our camper athletes learn these major life skills through their participation in the sport. Our coaches help campers recognize these skills through evaluations and one-on-one feedback. Young athletes need to know where they are improving and where they need more improvement. By giving honest feedback about performance, personality, and attitude, your children will learn to see the whole picture and not just their volleyball skills.
General Skills – Volleyball Camps: Nike volleyball camps are open to players of all ability levels. Here you’ll master the fundamentals, develop proper mechanics and gain game play experience. Every aspect of the game is covered throughout our Nike volleyball camps, giving you a solid skill foundation to build upon after camp.
Head Pro: Stephanie Dragan
Stephanie Dragan enters her fourth season as Head Volleyball Coach at Franklin Pierce in 2012. She also serves as senior woman administrator at the University. Through three campaigns in Rindge, Dragan has posted an 31-49 record (.388 winning percentage) over 80 matches to push her career record to 252-289 (.466) in 541 matches over 16 seasons as a collegiate head coach.
In addition to her responsibilities at Franklin Pierce, Dragan is currently serving the second year of two-year terms as both the chair of the NCAA Division II East Region Women’s Volleyball Committee and the chair of the Northeast-10 Conference Volleyball Coaches Group. As chair of the NCAA East Region Committee, she will also serve a two-year term as a member of the NCAA Division II National Women’s Volleyball Committee. Dragan is also representing the East Region on the American Volleyball Coaches Association’s Division II committee.
Most recently, the Ravens’ resurgence continued in 2011, as Dragan guided the team to a 13-13 mark, which included a 7-8 record in Northeast-10 play, both figures marking the high-water mark for her in Rindge thus far. The team finished ninth in the Conference, one lone game from qualifying for the eight-team Northeast-10 Championship in the 16-team Conference. The squad, which featured no seniors nor juniors, clearly set the table for a potential return to the postseason in 2012.
Dragan amassed 13 years of head coaching experience before coming to Rindge, the last four of which came at the Division I level for Western Carolina University. Before that, she spent seven very successful seasons at NCAA Division III Centre College, in Danville, Ky., where she compiled an overall record of 159-107 (.598). Prior to Centre, she posted a 30-30 (.500) record in two years during her first head coaching position at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Ga., from 1996-97.
Dragan is a 1994 graduate of Shawnee State University, in Portsmouth, Ohio, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in social science and was a standout setter on the Bears volleyball team. Dragan earned her Masters of Sport Science from the United States Sports Academy in 2008. She is an active member of the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA), is IMPACT certified and is a graduate of the NCAA Women’s Coaches Academy. She has also served as an assistant coach for the USA Developmental Team as part of the 2008 Global Challenge held in Puola, Croatia.
