Volleyball Reaches Out to Boca Community

BOCA RATON, Fla.—Lynn University's volleyball team hosted over 80 fifth-eighth grade girls at Sugar Sand Park in a community volleyball clinic through the City of Boca Raton Athletics (COBRA) on Sunday.

"The opportunity to work with 80 young volleyball stars at the City of Boca Raton Athletic League was rewarding for our players and staff," head volleyball coach Lynze Roos said. "To see so many enthusiastic young women learning the game we love was truly special. Our student-athletes were able to teach fundamental skills and also get to know some of the faces of our community."

All 14 members as well as the coaching staff of Lynn's volleyball team helped lead the clinic. The team taught the fundamentals of passing, setting, blocking, footwork and serving.    

"It is always such a privilege to be out in the community and promoting an active lifestyle in today's youth," senior Abbey Brokop said. "For me personally I loved how curious the girls were about learning all of the volleyball skills. They were so enthusiastic to learn how to make their game better. I could really tell they loved the game and just wanted to play."

The COBRA Girl's Volleyball League looks to provide an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game of volleyball, sportsmanship, team play and make new friends.

Lynn's volleyball season starts on August 31, against Texas A&M International at 11 a.m. in the 5th Annual Sharks Volleyball Classic hosted by Nova Southeastern. For more information, log on to LynnFightingKnights.com, 'Like' us on Facebook and follow @LUKnights on Twitter.
