COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan
For the protection of all participants, we anticipate there will be COVID-related health and safety guidelines in place when these camps begin. Our goal is to provide you as much information as we can in a timely manner. Because we expect that CDC, State, and University guidelines and recommendations could change between now and June, our initial health and safety plans will be released in mid-to-late May and will be updated as necessary throughout the summer.
Michigan Tech’s Little Huskies Camp is the perfect way to explore the basics of volleyball for budding players. Students learn the fundamentals of the game—serving, passing, setting, and more— in the SDC Varsity Gym. Our top coaches and student-athletes modify the game and equipment (such as lowering the net) for young players to ensure a successful and confidence-building experience.

Meet the Coaches
In eight seasons as a head volleyball coach, Matt Jennings has orchestrated an impressive rebuilding of the Michigan Tech volleyball program. Under Jennings, the Huskies have gone from the last place in the conference to nationally ranked and consistently in the NCAA Tournament. Jennings has coached the Huskies to three straight NCAA tournament appearances from 2017-2019 and has twice been named the GLIAC Coach of the Year in 2017 and 2019. Prior to Tech, Coach Jennings served three seasons as an assistant volleyball at the University of Pittsburgh. The Panthers compiled a 51-44 record during his three years there, including a 20-win season in 2009 and an 18-win campaign in 2011. The Chicago native played men’s volleyball at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, from 2000-03. He was a four-year starter, a two-time all-conference performer, and a 2002 Collegiate Club All-American. He helped his team to a national third-place finish in 2002.
Cindy Pindral enters her fifth season with the Michigan Tech volleyball team and fourth as the assistant coach after spending the 2016 season as a volunteer coach for the Huskies. Pindral is involved with nearly all phases of the program, including skill development, recruiting, scouting, practice planning, film breakdown, and team travel. She also serves as the lead coach for the Huskies’ youth programs, including the Little Huskies Volleyball Club, All-Skills Camps, and position-specific clinics. A native of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Pindral played at the University of Florida (2008) and the University of Colorado – Colorado Springs (2009-11). Pindral was the starting setter as a freshman at Florida. She led the team in assists and led the offense to the Sweet 16, an SEC championship, and a No. 10 national ranking. At UCCS, she played for former US Men's National Team star Keith Barnett and was a three-year starter. She was the 2009 Mountain Lion MVP and a CoSIDA Academic All-American. Pindral played the 2012 winter season professionally in the Italian Serie C League as the starting setter for Gio Volley Aprilia. In high school, Pindral was a two-time first-team all-state selection, four-time Rocky Mountain Region All-Star, a 2007 All-American, and a 2007 Andi Collins Award Finalist (nation's best senior setters).
