Past Mizzou Trip

On Sunday, October 23rd DIG it! Volleyball Inc. took 73 DIG it! friends and family to the University of Missouri campus to meet the team and watch the Mizzou Volleyball Program take on #21 Kentucky.

The trip kicked off with older players partnering with the younger volleyballers before boarding the two buses, which were filled with DIG it! participants, an international club volleyball team, local club volleyball players, and volunteers.

Upon arriving in Columbia, MO DIG it! had lunch at Shakespeare's Pizzeria before heading to the Athletic Facility for a facility tour. After completing the facility tour, we headed over to the Hearnes Center where DIG it! cheered Mizzou to a 5-set victory over #21 Kentucky. Following the match players went through the autograph line where they could meet the team, have their posters and t-shirts signed, and take photos. The trip concluded with thank-you card writing session during our 2hour commute back to St. Louis, MO.

These trips are incredibly important, not only for the bonding experience and exposure to a Division I campus, but also because they encourage and inspire young to chase their dreams.
