Posted: October 27, 2016

The Briercrest College athletic department hosted the the Caronport Elementary School (CES) Wednesday, Oct. 26 for a morning of volleyball teaching and games with the elementary school students.

CES Athletic Director Brandon Loveridge was excited with what he saw Wednesday morning.

“Great job with our students yesterday!” Loveridge said. “The students showed great excitement and they were engaged while learning skills and participating in the activities.  We loved how students were greeted at the door with a smile and a high five.  They immediately felt like they were part of the team.  We look forward to continuing a partnership with the college to encourage students to get involved in sport.  Thank you for your time and preparation to make these events happen.”

Briercrest women’s volleyball head coach Nolan Weinmaster helped lead the activities for the day and was excited to see the engagement between all involved.

“It was so fun to have the CES students here in our gym to interact with our college student-athletes and learn a few things about volleyball!” he explained. “The boys and girls were so attentive and it was great to see them so eager to learn! Our college volleyball players had a great time coaching and playing volleyball games with the kids! Many of them commented after about how much fun they had and that they were grateful for the opportunity to invest in these young lives.”
