Assistant Coach - Internship
The Champion Project

The Champion Project is working in collaboration with local colleges to bring volleyball clinics to underprivileged areas.  The Champion Project is looking to create opportunities for youth athletes and increase diversity in the sport of volleyball, while connecting them to college students to serve as role models.

*There will be an interest meeting on Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at 5PM in Glynn Hall 306*


Coaches will come into local schools to run weekly volleyball clinics that cater to youth athletes (lower nets, smaller courts, lighter balls, etc).  Skill training will take place, but the most important aspect will be engaging the students and encouraging a love for the sport.
