DURHAM, N.C. – After securing the 11th ACC title in program history, the Duke volleyball team turns its attention to the Durham community as the Blue Devils will lead a volleyball clinic at the TROSA campus Friday, Jan. 31. One of two such clinics the teams holds at TROSA each year, the event runs from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
 
TROSA, an acronym for Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers, is a comprehensive two-year residential substance abuse recovery program located in Durham. The organization aims to not only help its residents achieve sobriety but also gives them the tools needed to rebuild their lives and maintain sobriety once they leave TROSA.
 
“We see and feel their support for us, and we want to be there as a support for them,” said head coach Jolene Nagel. “Working with TROSA is a wonderful opportunity for our young women to be part of an incredible asset in our community which rebuilds people’s lives. We’re grateful we can provide support and some fun during their time with TROSA.”
 
In addition to holding clinics, the team donates clothing and equipment so TROSA residents can play volleyball in their gym. Duke has been an ardent supporter of the program through the years, and Nagel served as keynote speaker at last year’s TROSA graduation.
 
“The excitement of playing with athletes of this caliber if phenomenal,” said Genna Vega, one of TROSA’s 400 residents. “These women, aside from being tremendous athletes, care very much and are very supportive of us getting clean and staying sober.”
