(San Francisco) - Over 100 young athletes took to the courts at USF's Memorial Gymnasium last night to participate in USF Volleyball's fourth annual CYO Clinic for girls in third through eighth grade. Led by Assistant Coach Jackie Bernardin and the Dons varsity squad, the girls learned offensive and defensive drills, including serving, passing and blocking.
Commenting on the fun-filled, high energy evening, head volleyball coach Jeff Nelson said, "It was a great evening for our team, the young participants as well as their parents. The popularity of this clinic has increased every year and continues to attract aspiring young athletes from throughout the Bay Area. The clinics provide us with an opportunity to both give back to the community as well as meet our younger fans. It is one of the highlights of our pre-season schedule."
USF Volleyball's CYO Clinic is held every August and is two hours long. In addition to instruction from USF coaches and team members, this year's attendees received a USF Volleyball T-shirt and a pass for two to the USF Labor Day Weekend Volleyball Tournament when USF hosts San Jose State on September l at 7 pm and UC Santa Barbara on September 3 at 2 pm.
