GARDNERVILLE, Nev. — Two summer sessions of youth volleyball skills clinics are set for this summer.

Session 1: July 10 – 13 (3 clinic levels each day)

Session 2: July 31, August 1 – 3 (3 clinic levels each day)

Back this year, Rick Jenkins (8th Grade PWL VB coach, experienced with DHS volleyball) and I, Dan Hannah (7th Grade PWL VB Coach, developer of DCPR Youth VB Skills program) will again be teaching volleyball skills to local youth. Additional staff are being recruited to give more individualized attention to the participants.

Clinics will be focused on primary skills of the game of volleyball and tuned to the levels of the participants. 3 levels are predefined (Beginner level for those new to the sport, Intermediate level for those with experience but who are not quite ready to work with the older kids, and Advanced level for those with Club or School experience). Within each level players will work at the individualized lessons for each skill taught so that they can advance at their own pace. Players in the past have entered, and players this year are welcome to enter more than one level to get additional instruction time. Games are used to teach, to encourage the fun spirit of the game, and all clinics end with games to allow the players to play the game at the level they have attained and practice the skills learned in the context of an actual competition.

All sessions will be held at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center.
