Hawaii head volleyball coach coming for clinic

by Dave Delgado

Guam - With the help of Continental Airlines Head Volleyball Coach for the University of Hawaii Men's Team Charlie Wade will be on island next month to conduct a clinic. Wade served as head coach of the women's volleyball program at the University of Pacific from 2006-2008 and is the current head coach for the men's team at UH.

St. John's School athletic director Chris Shepherd told KUAM Sports, "We are planning on holding a volleyball clinic for high school boy's and girl's set to take place December 4th and 5th up at the UOG Filed House and we'll have coach Charlie Wade who is the NCAA Division 1 Volleyball Coach at the University of Hawaii. He is currently the men's coach and he was a long time assistant with the women's team so he has knowledge of both games and we are just looking for an opportunity for the kids of Guam to meet a coach of that caliber and make that connection and see what college athletics is all about.

As an assistant coach, Wade helped guide Hawaii to 11 conference championships along with a conference record of 160-1 and an overall record of 310-39. Charlie has helped produce eight All-Americans and 18 All-America Awards including 2 National Players of the Year."

He added about the experience, "For beginner volleyball players just learning about the sport I'm sure Charlie is going to cover all the basics and for the advance players making contact with the coach is one step. So if someone wanted to go on and play at the college level you have one contact that you actually know and cam help guide you or recruit you. Who knows we have a lot of kids out here who can play volleyball who really don't have that connection because we are so far away from the mainland and what not. This just bridges the gap and provides opportunities for kids to perhaps take that next step.

Those interested in registering for the clinic should be looking out for more information in your local newspapers or keep it locked to KUAM Sports and I'll pass on any additional information I get on next months event."

Pre-registration will be for a cheaper price. Said Shepherd, "Right now we are looking at $75 for pre-registration and if you wait until the door it's going to be $100.00 but not guaranteed because we are hoping a lot of kids will show up. It will be at the University of Guam Field House which is big but we do want to keep the numbers controlled so Charlie gets to have contact with all the kids that are there. But once we get that information out we will pass it out to all the various media outlets and hopefully we can get a lot of kids to sign up."
