Sunday afternoon begins with head coach Travis Filar inviting volleyball coaches from area middle and high school, YMCAs and even colleges for a clinic at Maclellan Gym. Assistant coaches Savanah Parra and Taylor Wittmer will aid Filar in conducting the clinic.
“This event provides an inside look at what Chattanooga volleyball is doing this spring in the gym,” said Filar. “We will be sharing what we are doing from a defensive stand point, philosophically. The coaching staff will demonstrate some of the drills being incorporated into practice, so participants in the clinic can hopefully share them with their players.”
Fans of the program are invited to watch the Mocs close up the spring season with an always exciting alumni match beginning at 3 p.m.
“It is really important in my mind to invite the past and foundation of the program back to be involved and supportive of what the current coaching staff is doing in moving the program forward,” said Filar. “The student-athletes are excited to meet the alumni and have one last opportunity to compete and wrap up the spring.”
Filar believes that this has been one of the toughest spring that the student-athletes experienced and is proud in the hard work put in and the progress that has been made.
“The teams has responded phenomenally to meet the current demands and expectation on the court and in the weight room this spring,” said Filar. “Looking back on where the teams started, it is great to see all the effort that has been put in to make the team better going into the fall season.”
Chattanooga concludes its spring season following the event and will begin preparations for the 2012 fall season in August.
