GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – Green Bay volleyball fans can get their first look at new head coach Michaela Franklin and her 2013 roster on Saturday, Aug. 24 at the team’s preseason scrimmage. The event, which is open to the public and free of charge, begins at 3:30 p.m. at the Kress Center on the UW-Green Bay campus, with doors opening at 2:30 p.m.

In addition, the Phoenix will hold a free clinic for kids in grades eight and below immediately following the scrimmage.

The intrasquad scrimmage will feature pre-match introductions, players in game uniforms and a series of wash drills in front of the fans on Green Bay’s home court.
