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.

Fall 2018 Clinics

All attendees are free to attend either or both clinics; attendees of the second week are expected to know the basics of each skill covered in order to participate in the skills drills.
