Boston UVC Tryouts
All - Skills Clinics
Incoming 8th - 12th grade girls
We will review serving, passing, attacking, setting, and defense.
Many high school coaches agree that the most important skill is serving. With that understanding, we will spend a good amount of time teaching/reviewing a jump float serve, jump topspin serve, short serve, and aggressive standing float serve.
We will spend ~50% of our time in game play situations to help athletes get ready for the season!
As with all of our programs, we strive to be encouraging and positive. Athletes will leave this clinic feeling ready to succeed in their high school tryouts!
