UK Volleyball 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (4/11/14) — The Kentucky volleyball team is set to once again host its annual coaches’ clinic in Memorial Coliseum April 11 - 12.

Highlighting the weekend long tutorial on coaching philosophies, drills and techniques the UK volleyball team will host Ohio State in exhibition competition to conclude the weekend. Match time is tentatively scheduled for 2:30 p.m. ET.

UK is in the midst of its four-week spring schedule and will host Ohio State in its lone home competition of the spring Saturday.

“We are excited to have former Olympian and national champion coach, Ping Cao, join our clinic staff this weekend,” UK coach Craig Skinner said. “He is a great addition to our clinic and will complement our staff instructing various philosophies, training exercises and drills. Capping off the weekend with a home match against Ohio State is exciting as well. The match will provide a unique look into high powered volleyball programs competing in an exhibition contest.”
