Special Olympics

Last week, we held a clinic for local Special Olympians. We've got photos to post, but will do so in a future post.

Junior Bel Fakaosi shares her experiences with the event below.

Hosting the Special Olympians was a fun experience for me. I was able to teach something I love to others who also enjoy the game. I have done volleyball camps before, but I think this camp has to be one of the most fun I've ever been to. It was something different, but very enjoyable.

It was just great seeing these Special Olympians learn and have fun while doing so. They seemed to enjoy the game and seeing that was a great feeling. I really had tons of fun.

In what has become an annual tradition, the Delaware State University Lady Hornets hosted several Special Olympics Delaware athletes and coaches for a volleyball clinic last Monday night on the Hornets' home court inside Memorial Hall.

"We are so happy that Special Olympics has chosen DSU women's volleyball to help with a clinic," DSU head coach Renee Arnold said. "We enjoy this annual event and it gives the players an opportunity to coach and enjoy a pressure-free night of volleyball."

The SODE teams are preparing for the annual Fall Festival volleyball tournament, which will be held October 21-22 at the University of Delaware Field House.

"The experience for our athletes and coaches as the get ready for their tournament is invaluable," said Mark Wise, SODE director of training. "And from what we hear from the DSU players and coaches, the experience for them is very rewarding."
