Coffee County Central Lady Raider volleyball will welcome 15 other teams to Manchester for the Dream for Weave Southern Slam volleyball tournament Saturday – a tournament that will use a total of four courts at three separate gyms and feature plenty of volleyball.
Games will be played on two courts at Coffee County High School (100 Red Raider Dr.) and on a court at Coffee Middle and Westwood Middle. Best of three matches begin at 9 a.m. on all four courts and tournament play will start at 3:30 p.m., culminating with the championship match at 6:30 p.m. at CHS.
The tournament has been held for multiple years by the Lady Raiders, but this is the first year to include the Dream for Weave Foundation in honor of the late voice of Coffee County athletics – Dennis Weaver, who passed away in July of 2020. Portions of the tournament proceeds will go to the Dream for Weave Foundation, a 501c3 organization that has contributed nearly $20,000 in athletic scholarships and sports equipment for student-athletes in need over the past two years.
The Dream for Weave Foundation teamed up with Thunder Radio to host the inaugural Thundies Sports Awards in May 2022. The second event is scheduled for May 2023. There were $13,000 in scholarships awarded at the first event.
YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE DIRECTLY TO THE DREAM FOR WEAVE FOUNDATION. MAIL CHECKS PAYABLE TO “DREAM FOR WEAVE FOUNDATION” TO 1030 OAKDALE ST. IN MANCHESTER.
CHS plays pool lay games at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. – all at CHS. The full tournament schedule is below:
