Shibuya will conduct an advanced volleyball camp for men ages 12 to 24 from Aug. 7 through 10 at UVI's Sports and Fitness Center. According to the press release from UVI, Shibuya will also assist with the preparation of UVI volleyball teams for the upcoming season and provide opportunities for V.I. student athletes to showcase and develop their skills.
