As the Seawolves prepare for the opening of their 2014 volleyball schedule, they already have exciting news in store for next summer as head coach Chris Green has announced plans for a European tour in August 2015.

The tour will begin in Praque (Czech Republic) and will include stops in Maribor and Bled (Slovenia), Venice (Italy) and Vienna (Austria).

"This will prove to be an exciting educational and competitive experience for our student-athletes," said Green, who begins his seventh season at UAA this fall. "This 10-day trip will be funded through private support, so we are anxious to start fund raising so we can make it a reality.”

Funds raised for the trip will help cover a portion of the costs for airfare, accommodations and ground transportation.

All donations are considered charitable and will be processed by the UAA Department of Athletics (Tax ID 92-6000147). Checks may be made payable to UAA Athletics and mailed to the Athletics Office at 3211 Providence Drive, Anchorage, AK 99508 or online by clicking here.

The team is also marketing its official team sweatshirt for purchase for a limited time. The cost is $55 and net proceeds support the volleyball team and its fundraising goals. Hurry, you only have until Monday, Sept. 8th at 10 a.m. to place your order. (Sizes XS – XXL)
