Positional Clinics

The CT Juniors Volleyball Summer Positional Clinic is a 6-week program designed to give players the opportunity to work solely on their own position both separately and in relation to other position players on the court. Every other week, girls will work only with players who play the same position. On opposite weeks, groups will be combined so that girls will learn what role their position plays in relation to the full team.  The 2016 Summer Program has been cancelled.

This program is only open to girls who are entering 9th-12th grade.  (9th graders must have prior experience in order to sign up - this program is not for beginners!)  Program is limited to 24 players.

 
Online registration is open for all our other summer programs!
