We are hosting an 7-week volleyball clinic that is starting at the end of January, to be held at L. D. Bell High School from 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM on one night each week for our current 2nd-6th graders. In an effort to work with whatever other extracurricular activities your daughter is involved in, you can choose for your daughter to attend Session I on Monday nights or Session II on Wednesday nights. The clinic will be coached by Julie Price, head volleyball coach at L. D. Bell High School, some of our L. D. Bell High School and Junior High volleyball coaches, as well as many of our former Blue Raider volleyball players.
The focus of this clinic is skill development and play opportunity. We believe strongly that we learn best by doing, so our clinic is designed to introduce volleyball concepts in a blocked/controlled setting and then immediately work on those concepts in competitive play. We find that strategy MUCH more enjoyable for our athletes and results in the highest rate of volleyball growth.
No experience needed - we'd love for your daughter to participate! The clinic is designed to help each player individually get better, so the courts will be divided based on skill and ability (and not necessarily by age). We will evaluate on the first night for the first hour, and then we will split the girls onto courts by varying skill for the second hour. There might be some movement from court to court as we get to know the girls and continue to assess their evolving skills, but for the most part, they will stay on that court for the duration of the clinic . In this way, we can tailor the instruction on each court to the approximate ability of that group and create a challenging and appropriate experience for each child.
This is a great opportunity for kids of all ages to play volleyball in the next few months - we are excited about ALL of them coming to our clinic. For those of you who are parents of a 6th grader who has the opportunity to participate in 7th grade athletics in the next school year - we strongly encourage your daughter to play some volleyball this coming winter/spring/summer to prepare for volleyball tryouts in the fall! It certainly doesn't have to be at our clinic - we know we have lots of 6th graders in our community playing club volleyball or playing with the YMCA, and those are GREAT options. This is just another option for your daughter to get touches on the ball with our shared goal to have them more prepared for 7th grade tryouts.
