From June 27 through June 30, Erica Coleman and Jasmine McQueen of Kentucky State University’s volleyball team helped run a special camp at the Frankfort YMCA. The camp was organized to introduce youth to the sport of volleyball.

“I would like to thank Coach May for her help in securing volunteers for our youth volleyball camp,” stated YMCA Sports Director, Melissa Bondurant. “I appreciate the time and energy spent for the Y, as well as the time and instruction given by Erica and Jasmine. We are excited to build interest in the community for girls volleyball, and I hope we can continue to partner with KSU Volleyball all for camps, clinics, and other support.”

The mission of the YMCA is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. The youth sports programs offer an environment where family involvement is encouraged and everyone plays in positive competition.

“This was a great camp for KSU volleyball to help out,” said KSU’s Head Coach, Kyetta May. “Erica and Jasmine are great role models and it’s important for our youth to connect with our student-athletes to enhance their education, learn about sports and understand how to balance being a student-athlete on all levels of competition.”
