DePaul Volleyball Hosts Post-Match Clinic Following Marquette Match
Oct. 1, 2012
CHICAGO - The DePaul women's volleyball team hosted a benefit volleyball clinic with local area youth on Sunday, September 30 following its most recent match against Marquette.
The instruction centered on volleyball fundamentals and was supervised by DePaul student-athletes and coaches.
"Having 43 kids in the building was just really exciting - for us to have the opportunity to teach and coach them," said head coach Nadia Edwards. "I think our girls had a lot of fun interacting with them and teaching them new skills. It's definitely a positive thing for us as well."
Sign-ups are still available for next Sunday's clinic (October 7) to follow the Blue Demons' BIG EAST tilt against Connecticut. The match will begin at 2 p.m. with the instruction following immediately after. Please contact assistant coach Marie Zidek at firstname.lastname@example.org to enroll in the program.
About Side-Out Foundation:
The term side-out refers to a situation in volleyball when one team wins a point while its opponent is serving, thereby regaining serve or control of play. It is hoped that this Side-Out will do the same for breast cancer patients, providing them with the support, education and best available treatments to regain control of their lives.
