What is the setter/defense clinic?

This program was created to give setters and libero's (or defensive specialists) an opportunity to advance their skills while in High School/Middle School season .  The one night clinic will have a separate program for "Advanced" athletes.  Both sessions will be drill/technique focused, but will wrap up with 30 minutes of "play" related drills.

This program best serves all athletes.  The general group is open to any and all athletes (aged 12-18).  The Advanced group is best for those with 2.5+ years of setting/defensive experience, and already have the basic abilities and techniques required of the position.  Depending on the size of our group, we will break up according to skill/age.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at with any questions or concerns.
