HOUSTON — The University of Houston volleyball team recently took the time to help out local youth at Camp Lawrenz in the Spring Branch area by assisting with a volleyball skills session.

Camp Lawrenz is a sports and fitness camp held each year at Spring Oaks Middle school for 600, first through fifth graders in the Spring Branch Independent School District. The camp is held in remembrance of Dawn Lawrenz, a Spring Branch ISD Health and Fitness teacher who passed way from lung cancer in August 2007.

Since 2008, the Cougars have helped with the camp effort by conducting three 45-minute volleyball workshops. The students have a chance to learn skills from some of the top volleyball players in the city, and the players get the gratification of giving back to their community.

“We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to help the young kids at Camp Lawrenz improve and learn the sport of volleyball,” head coach Kaddie Platt said. “Our student-athletes strive to build relationships within our community, and it is great what something like this can teach our team.”

The Cougars will also help with Marathon Kids, a non-profit program for students that promotes endurance building through running and walking, on Saturday, April 13.
