LWC Volleyball gives back with Special Olympics Clinic
By Charlie Balcom
Sioux City, Iowa - The Lindsey Wilson volleyball team took a break from their game preparations to participate in the Special Olympics Clinic on Wednesday morning at the Gateway Arena in the Tyson Events Center.
The Blue Raiders were joined by other teams competing in the championship to show their support for the local youngsters involved with the program.
Head coach Andy Cavins was very pleased with the way his team interacted with the participants at the clinic.
"I'm always extremely proud of our group of girls for the way they engage with the Special Olympians," Cavins said. "They do a great job of fostering relationships with the group as quickly as possible. It shows they know how important it is to establish these bonds not just for the Olympians but for our team as well."
The Blue Raiders began the day using beach volleyballs to teach the participants hitting techniques, working on digs, and serving the ball over the net, followed by keeping the ball in the air in a passing circle. The day then turned to creating some fun with a parachute before an impromptu conga-line broke out.
"It's always a highlight of our trip here to Sioux City," Cavins said. "Not only does it provide a nice break for the girls from the monotony of film sessions and the nerves of matches, but it also highlights the core values of the NAIA Champions of Character program."
Lindsey Wilson faces MidAmerica Nazarene (Kan.) on Wednesday evening at 5:45 p.m. CT in their second match of pool play.
