TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida State volleyball team was the youngest team in the country last year, but they still went 20-10 and made it to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Success brings fans, especially the young ones. This week, the Seminoles held their first camp of the summer. Over 150 middle and high schoolers are in Tallahassee this week to better their skills from head coach Chris Poole and his staff and players.

The size of the camp is a testament to this program's success, and one they don't take for granted.

"Florida State has a great brand, and always has, but I think volleyball, we're building a great brand as a sport here," said Poole. "I think a lot of players are interested in coming to school here, they're interested in playing volleyball here so it's really exciting to see that much interest around the country. We have some from California that are here. Last year we had one from California that was here, so we're getting a lot of interest from players."

Poole said there are some spots available in upcoming camps.
