WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Boilermaker volleyball team is offering an all-access look at the program as part of its Coaching Clinic on April 19-20. The event will allow coaches of all levels - club, junior high, high school and college - an inside glimpse at the team's coaches, players, practices, match routines and facilities, while also providing educational opportunities in a variety of areas including leadership training, sports performance, skill techniques and drills.
The clinic, which is being held in conjunction with the Boilermakers' final spring competition with Ball State and Kentucky on April 20, will feature both classroom time as well as observation.
Head coach Dave Shondell has a unique coaching background, including experience on the club, high school and college levels, working with players ages 10 to 23.
Cost for the clinic is $100 per coach or $80 each for teams with more than four coaches attending.

Under Shondell, the 2011 Big Ten and Mideast Region Coach of the Year, Purdue has defeated 30 ranked teams and climbed the Big Ten standings, finishing second in 2011, its best finish since 1987.
