Event description

Description

There are 2 6-week skills sessions starting the week of Jan 22nd

Mondays- Intermediate Skills Clinic (5-8th graders) Jan 22, 29, Feb. 5, 12, 19, 26 4:15-5:30PM
Tuesdays- Basic Skills Clinic (3rd - 7th graders) Jan 23, 30, Feb. 6, 13, 20, 27 4:15-5:30PM

Make-up dates will be included in the cost:
We will extend weeks as needed due to any weather cancellations that may occur.

WHAT: The majority of these sessions will be focused on teaching and reteaching the skills needed to be successful in volleyball. Expert club and Valley volleyball coaches along with high school player volunteers will instruct and guide players in their learning.

HOW: Players will be divided up on two courts (based on skill levels) to work on skills appropriate for developing the fundamentals needed for success at the higher levels. One lead coach and volunteer high school players will run each court of instruction. The pace and difficulty of the drills will be based on the players on the court. We will do everything possible to put players on the appropriate court. Lots of game play, fun, and learning will take up the majority of each session.

WHY: To provide opportunities for participants to be introduced to, improve upon, and master specific volleyball fundamentals. With so many players participating in the variety of club offerings around the area, this will be a chance for players to come together and develop the fundamentals emphasized throughout Valley’s fall program. Uniformity and consistent language/feedback is key to players at all levels, especially those being instructed at other clubs.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Monday Intermediate Skills are for players who have had multiple exposures to volleyball from camps/clubs/playing experiences. Registration in this clinic is for those able to perform basic passing, setting, hitting, serving techniques. Age ranges will be for players between 5th and 8th grade.

Tuesday Basic Skills are for players who are relatively new or just learning the game of volleyball for the first time. Registration in this clinic is for those who can't yet perform some or most of the basic passing, setting, hitting, serving techniques required in volleyball. Age ranges will be for players between 3rd and 7th grade.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Pick up and drop off will be on the SOUTH SIDE of the school. Parents staying to watch should park on the south side of the building and enter through the south doors. There is a breezeway for players to wait for pick-up. Because WCC does night school, all players and parents must enter and exit through the south doors (not the main ones).

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Players must bring a water bottle, athletic shoes, and athletic shorts or compression shorts. Don't bring valuables. All bags and coats will be placed on the stairs on the east side of the gym. Restrooms are available for changing. WCC doesn't have locker rooms so plan accordingly.
