Nexus Volleyball camp brings in toys for Red Deer Christmas Bureau

About 65 presents were donated to the Red Deer Christmas Bureau through a volleyball camp.

The Nexus Volleyball Gifts for Coaching Exchange and the first-ever Sugar Cookie Classic were held at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre Saturday.

“In the morning we ran a two-hour session with girls in Grades 7 to 9 – their entrance fee was a Christmas gift donation,” said Geoff Trentham, who founded Nexus Volleyball two years ago.

“Then in the afternoon we had our first-ever Sugar Cookie Classic tournament, where we had three girls teams and four boys teams. Again, admission was a gift donation from each player.”

Red Deer College donated the gym time for the event.

Trentham said he was excited to give back to the community with this volleyball camp.

“Red Deer is is a big volleyball city,” said Trentham.

“We can use this (camp) to, not only provide coaching in the morning and a little bit of fun in the afternoon, but as a way to give back to people who don’t necessarily have the opportunity to be at camps throughout the year. Also Christmastime is difficult for a lot of people and it’s nice to be able to give back a little bit.”
