CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga volleyball team concludes its spring season on Sunday with a free coaches clinic from 3-4:30 p.m. followed by an Alumni Match at 5 p.m inside Maclellan Gym. First-year Head Coach Travis Filar will conduct the coaches clinic teaching local high school and club coaches about some of the training techniques the Lady Mocs have used this spring. A brochure for the clinic can be viewed through the link at the top of the page.
"We are excited because it is going to be a big day for Chattanooga volleyball," said Filar. "This is a chance for our staff and team to give back to the community and share some of the things that we have done in our gym.
"Then, I am encouraging them to stay around and watch our alumni match. We want to get our alumni of Chattanooga volleyball and the community excited about the new direction of the program."
The Lady Mocs have been hard at work this spring preparing for the 2011 fall campaign since the middle of March. They have participated in 6 a.m. practices three to four times a week, which has pulled the team together as a family.
"I think that we have made a lot of progress," said Filar. "Technically and skill wise, our kids have improved tremendously in their all-around game. The culture in the gym has completely changed in how hard we are training along with our energy and communication in the gym. The kids are loving volleyball."
