Owens Community College Hosts Volleyball Clinic For Elementary and Junior High Students, Nov. 16

Owens Community College will offer area elementary and junior high volleyball players and teams the opportunity to learn about the fundamentals of the sport as the College hosts a volleyball clinic on Saturday, November 16.

Co-sponsored by Owens Community College and Sports Care, the volleyball clinic runs from 8-10 a.m. in the College's Student Health and Activities Center (SHAC) on the Toledo-area Campus. Owens is located on Oregon Road, four miles from Downtown Toledo.

The volleyball clinic will be led by a number of area college and high school volleyball coaches. Children ages 6-13 will receive expert instruction on volleyball skills. In addition, doctors from Sports Care will evaluate each participant's fitness level using the National Athlete Testing Program (NATP). Sports Care is the provider of sports medicine for all six Owens Express athletic programs.

"Last year's clinic was a huge success," said Lynn Hoehn, Owens Intramural and Fitness Specialist. "The collaboration between Owens Community College and Sports Care in coordinating the volleyball clinic has proven to be a very beneficial initiative. I anticipate another exciting event this year."

The volleyball clinic is being held in conjunction with the NJCAA Women's Volleyball Division II National Championships, November 14-16, hosted by Owens Community College.

The registration fee for the clinic is only $3 per player. This includes admission to Saturday's championship matches, which begin at 10 a.m. The clinic is limited to the first 80 registrants.

For more information, or to register, call (567) 661-7933 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 7933.
