Clinic Overview

 

Fall Clinics offer technical and strategic training to beginners, intermediate and our elite volleyball players. We focus heavily on teaching our athletes how to win and how to compete at a high level. 

In determining which level clinic to attend as a 15U, use good judgement.  If you are from a smaller school program with no national level experience, you should likely register for the Middle School & Junior Varsity High School Series so you can get quality repitition at a pace you will experience growth.  If you are from a larger volleyball program with multiple JV teams, have national level experience, and can or do contribute at the varsity level occassionally, the Varsity High School Clinics would be most beneficial for you.
