NEWPORT — Brooke Klaudt, Newport’s varsity volleyball coach, says the 30 or so youngsters who are bopping balls around Spangler Court this week during Newport’s annual youth volleyball camp aren’t the only ones learning the game.

Klaudt has a large group of Cubs volleyball players helping teach the program, but what the high schoolers are learning is just as important to her.

“It’s helpful to the coaches, but it’s more for them, because you learn as you teach,” Klaudt said. “Things they tell these kids, it then hits home, ‘oh, that’s what my coaches are telling me.’”

Cubs senior Makiah Johnson agreed that the learning-by-teaching approach helps her get better.

“It is very hard to actually teach them because each individual learns differently,” she said. “Some people don’t get it the first time, so you have to stop, think about it and really explain it.”
