DC Metro Volleyball Group Message Board › Update and Open Play & Clinic at GW
We have joined many of the GW volleyball clinics in the past (highly highly recommend them), and though it's a different coach/assistant coach than the times I went, they seem to be starting to open things for the rest of the volleyball community again. Ryan Freeburg, the GW Assistant Vball Coach, sent the email below about open play and a future clinic (not sure if they are in the same style as in the past, since it's a different staff/players, but worth checking them out).
They also have their own meetup group, and though I'm against advertising for other groups (specially because I have a feeling the idea came from when I contacted them about keeping us in the loop and sent the link to our meetup), I'm also a firm believer that spreading information is that best way to keep people happy, and I'm not one to keep that away from you (I think the groups can complement each other, no?).
I'm still away from DC for another year while we do our tour in the Philippines, but Pebbles and Missy have been doing a good job as organizers. If you want to setup any events, just shoot them a message and they can have that set for you. Should be back playing next year! I miss volleyball dearly, and since I always played with lots of Filipinos in DC, I thought I'd be set in Manila, but no luck: I've asked around and have yet to find courts, leagues or open play anywhere here.
Here is the email from GW:
Greetings from the GW Staff! We would like to thank all of you for the great turn-outs at last week's Happy Hour and Open Gym. There were about 15 of us at the happy hour and almost 30 players for the open gym. In fact, the open gym was so popular that we've scheduled another one! Here's what we have coming up:
Open Gym at the Smith Center: We are proud to announce that we will be having a 2nd (hopefully of many) open gym at the Smith Center. For just $5 you can play 2 hours of volleyball in one of the nicest volleyball venues in DC, the Charles E. Smith Center at GW. This will take place from 7:00-9:00 on Thursday, June 28th. Last time we had 28 players and had a great time playing volleyball. We hope to have even more next week.
Outside Attacker Adult Clinic: We are nearing half-full for the Outside Attacking Clinic that is still over a month away! Be sure to sign up soon to retain a spot in this clinic. These clinics will be held on Tuesdays July 24th, July 31st and August 7th from 7:00-9:30. We will be working on all the skills necessary to be a good outside attacker including passing, blocking, attacking and floor defense. The cost for this is only $155. To register please go to www.gwvolleyballcamps.com.
Also, as some of you know we have a meetup group that we would like to have you all join. It is called George Washington University Volleyball. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Thanks and have a great rest of this week and weekend. Stay cool.
The George Washington University
