ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - UCF assistant volleyball coach Michelle Chatman has been selected to represent USA Volleyball at the Minority Women in Coaching Conference Oct. 6-8 at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
"It is a significant honor to be selected as the sole representative of USA Volleyball to attend the Minority Women in Coaching Conference," Chatman said. "I am looking forward to being surrounded by women looking to improve themselves in the coaching profession. There are several guests on the schedule that I am excited to hear speak and interact with. I will be eager to return and share the wealth of knowledge gained from this conference with our staff and our team."
