Camp Director Emily Hayes
Emily Hayes joined the Lewis & Clark coaching staff prior to the 2017 season.View Emily 's Bio ⟩
Hayes brings national-championship level experience to the Pioneers. She is a former collegiate volleyball student-athlete at Hope College in Holland, Mich., which won the 2014 NCAA Division III national title the year after Hayes ended a two-year stint as an assistant coach. She had joined the Flying Dutch coaching staff after her time as a setter for the team was over. Since then, she has held two additional assistant coaching roles. Hayes was an assistant men's and women's coach at Lourdes University in Sylvania, Ohio in 2014 before joining the staff at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y. in 2015 as a graduate assistant.
Throughout her five years as a collegiate coach, Hayes was part of coaching staffs that mentored eight All-Americans, eleven All-Conference recipients and several Academic All-Conference award winners. In addition, she was part of a team that won a NCAA Elite 89 award, which recognizes the true essence of the student-athlete by honoring the individual who has reached the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level in his or her sport, while also achieving the highest academic standard among his or her peers.
While at St. Lawrence, Hayes had six student-athletes earn All-Liberty League recognition and nine chosen for conference all-academic honors. She also established core and weight lifting programs for the team.
In addition to her collegiate coaching experience, Hayes has six years of club coaching experience with the Lakeshore Region High Performance staff in Grand Rapids, Mich. and the Impact Dynamic Volleyball Club in Grandville, Mich.
A native of Austin, Texas, Hayes held 3.50 or high grade-point average as she completed both her Bachelor of Arts in Classical Studies and a Health Education minor at Hope College and her Master of Education in Educational Leadership from St. Lawrence University.

Learned how to perfect my form
July 26, 2017: I loved learning how to perfect my form better, how to dive correctly, the games we played (Russian rotation, 6 on 6 wave).
— Alexa R. Camper
July 26, 2017: She loved working with Bailee & Brooke! She really got to work on serving over hand. She had a lot of fun working on spiking the ball with Brooke. We're looking forward to coming to Lewis & Clark to watch some of Bailee's games this season!

Lots of individual attention
August 10, 2016: This camp had a great energy level, safe environment, and they were able to work on good techniques and skills. I liked that the girls were given individual attention and coaches stayed with them until they understood the skill. There was a lot of attention and attention to quality of reps and most importantly it was fun!

Get specific instruction
The coaches were helpful and informative and great with this age group. I thought the kids got a fair amount of individual attention/instruction. Even though it was an All-skills camp, I really liked that there was a small amount of time on days 3 & 4 to allow the kids to choose a specific skill for which they could get more dedicated instruction.

The Nike Volleyball camp my child attended at Lewis & Clark College was excellent. The coaching staff was knowledgeable, positive and enthusiastic. They were very good with kids and encouraged good character was well as good VB play. The facility was terrific. The pace of the camp was great - brisk but not brutal. All the kids seemed to get plenty of touch time - nobody was left out of the action. The camp was good for a wide variety of skill levels. If you have a child interested in volleyball, I highly recommend the Nike VB Camp.
