Project Coach Gets a Volleyball Lesson

This past Monday night the volleyball team from the Williston Northampton School visited PC's Coaching Academy. They started by showing a video of a recent game so that PC coaches could get a sense of how the game is structured.

They then moved to the gym for a clinic on how to play, focusing on two foundational moves: bumping and setting. After the clinic, both groups were able to talk with one another about PC in Springfield and boarding school in Easthampton.

As a PC Fellow stated at a recent meeting, the evening was a rare opportunity for students to meet with a group who has a very different daily experience. Williston and PC plan to continue working together in the future, and volleyball is now a likely candidate for future seasons of PC.
