Clinics

Clinics, whether they are focused on learning the basics or skills drills, can help every player improve! CBVA aims to offer a wide variety of clinics each year, for both beginners and more advanced players.

Spring 2019 Clinics

Our Spring 2019 clinics will be taught at a more intermediate level, though players of all levels are welcome to attend! Our coach can help newer players catch up, as well as give higher level players more advanced critiques and suggestions. Each clinic will include skills drills/practice/repetition, and most will discuss strategy as well as go through some game drills. Each clinic also builds upon the previous clinic; however, players are welcome to attend whichever clinics they are interested in. 

General Information:

Who? All members & non-members are welcome to attend, and all clinics are coached by Nick Bryant! 
When?
Sundays, 12:00pm – 2:00pm (see schedule below for information on final dates)

Cost? $15 per clinic (pre-register online or pay in cash at the door; discounted 5-packs at $50 are available online)
