The College of Mount St. Joseph Men’s Volleyball team will hold a free youth skills clinic for boys in grades 5-8 during the weekend of the Continental Volleyball Conference Crossover Event at the Harrington Center.
The clinic will run from 10:30-11:30 a.m. on Feb. 8 and will be instructed by the Mount’s men’s team coaches and players. The clinic is a great opportunity for youth players to meet the team as well as watch collegiate matches before and after the clinic, including the MSJ men’s team.
“The men’s volleyball program is excited to teach the youth players in the Cincinnati area some new skills and open their eyes to the possibilities of playing collegiate volleyball,” said MSJ Head Men’s Volleyball Coach Ryan Lengerich. “One of the goals of our program is to promote the sport of men’s volleyball in our community, and this is a great way to do that.”
The CVC Crossover event is the premier NCAA Division III men’s volleyball event in the country, with 12 teams competing at the Harrington Center throughout the weekend. The CVC is split into East and West divisions, with six teams in each division. During the event each team will play three matches against teams in the other division.
The Mount will compete against Marymount University at 1:30 p.m. and Cairn University at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 8, then against Stevenson University at 8:30 a.m. on Feb. 9.

Although there is no charge for the clinic, boys who wish to participate must register in advance, and the clinic will be capped at 25 participants. The camp will cover many different techniques, and players of all levels are invited. Those who participate will receive free admission to the event that day and t-shirts will be on sale with proceeds going to the Men’s Volleyball program.
