LWC Volleyball gives back at Special Olympics
Time out from NAIA National Tournament preparations
Blue Raider Volleyball team opens pool play against Tabor at 9amCT, today, Tue 29 Nov 2016, at the Tyson Events Center, 401 Gordon Drive, Sioux City, Iowa. Volleyball National Championship Pool Play three day schedule
By Charles Balcom, Assistant Sports Information Director
SIOUX CITY, Iowa - The Lindsey Wilson volleyball team took a break from their match preparations to participate in the Special Olympics Clinic on Monday morning at the Tyson Events Center.
The Blue Raiders were joined by other teams competing in the national tournament to show their support for the local members involved with the program with a session of fun and games.
Head coach Andy Cavins was very pleased with the way his team interacted with the participants at the clinic.
"Our girls get a lot of enjoyment out of this activity and it's nice to see them genuinely engaged and giving back like this," Cavins said.
A variety of fun activities were on hand during the session. The Blue Raiders began by working on passing skills, which led to the group forming a circle and keeping a ball up in the air. An exercise serving the ball over the net was up next, followed by games with a jump rope and more fun with a giant inflatable volleyball. While the games did not always follow a set structure, one constant remained - smiles, laughter, and high fives.
The session came to a close with a few words about the Champions of Character initiative and how it can be demonstrated each and every day.
"It helps our girls maintain perspective on the great opportunity that is being a student-athlete, while also being a holistic person," Cavins said. "It's giving back to the community and enriching the lives of both our team and the Special Olympians."
