Clinic Details:

The clinic will start promptly at 9:00 a.m. on day 1 and go until 4:00 p.m. with a 30 minute break for lunch.  On day 2, we will start at 9:00 a.m. and go until 2:00 p.m. with short breaks for snacks.  Please bring a snack lunch and suitable drinks both days.

You will want to bring: a t-shirt, kneepads, water, personal items etc...

Important: If you are under 18 years old and received a ride to the clinic, please inform staff when your parents plan to pick you up.  We would ask that you remain inside the facility until a responsible party arrives.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Get ready to have a great time!  You will learn a lot about volleyball in a short period of time.  It is very helpful if you show up in relatively decent shape and most importantly, do not compare yourself to others in the clinic.  If you feel intimidated or bored, the learning process shuts down.
