Hello all! We wanted to give you a quick update on everything going on with EMU Volleyball! We have had some big changes come through, as there has been some unrest in Nicaragua. As a result, we changed our destination to beautiful COSTA RICA! Our new itinerary includes high level volleyball in the capital city of San Jose, beach excursion to Manuel Antonio, as well as the rainforest of La Fortuna. The itinerary is set for 3 matches in San Jose, as well as serving the community through various volleyball clinics with the Ticos. Other than volleyball, the team will be visiting a volcano, doing surf lessons, hiking through the hanging bridges, and doing a zip line through the rainforest just to name a few!
At this point, we are under a week until the rookies join us here in Ypsilanti. Most of the team will begin taking courses, and all will be training for season and the trip ahead! Team training will begin on July 2nd, as we get ten practices as a team before the trip. Our new trip dates are July 16-24th, and we hope to continue to update you on our fundraising, training, and trip details!
We appreciate all of your donations to help us get so close to our goal! As of today, we have reached 83% of our lofty goal, and we will make a final push through June and July.
