Tech Volleyball Continues Work With High Point Village
Tech Volleyball continues to volunteer at High Point Village this spring.
April 3, 2012
In just over a year as Texas Tech's head coach, Don Flora has made it a priority to not only be successful on the court but also in the community.
Flora and the Red Raiders have kept up with that promise this spring with frequent visits to High Point Village, a local residential living community for individuals with special needs.
As part of Tech's visits, the Red Raiders help teach the game of volleyball to the community members, often using beach balls and various other aspects to practice fundamentals. Afterward, each participant lines up to receive an autographed team poster as a memento of the day.
"It is absolutely a pleasure for our program to be sharing volleyball skills, the joy of playing a `game,' and being involved with wonderful people with all types of varying abilities," Flora said. "These athletes genuinely enjoyed just playing the game they love - volleyball - with our friends at High Point Village."
High Point Village has been an organization that Flora has been increasingly involved with since the start of the 2011 season and one that the program will continue to associate itself with in the future.
"We couldn't be happier to be involved with such a great organization," Flora said. "I know our players enjoy each and every time we visit and it is something we cherish and look forward to continuing in the future."
