Fri 10/19: VOLLEYBALL Skills Clinic: Ball Control & Defense in SF + Upcoming Volleyball Leagues & Tournaments

From: Ernest

(1) Ball Control & Defense Clinic - Friday 10/19 in San Francisco (Potrero Hill Gym from 7pm to ~ 9:15pm) 
VBmatch will host a Volleyball Skills Clinic this Friday (10/19).  This Clinic will focus on Ball Control and Defense and is intended for Intermediate Players.  This is NOT a clinic for Beginners.  This clinic assumes that players already have fundamental skills and several years of playing experience.  We will work on developing and honing those fundamental skills for more accurate / more optimal passing and better defense.  An important part of effective defense is anticipating what the opposing hitter (or setter) will do.  When your opponent makes an imperfect pass or an imperfect set, that limits what their hitter can do.  The defense needs to adjust accordingly.  We will go over specific defense scenarios and identify what the hitter will likely do in those scenarios (i.e. the hitter's highest percentage hit given a particular set) and how you should defend in those scenarios. 

- Class Fee: $15-per-student  (or $5 for current VBmatch league players)

- Reserve a spot for yourself in the CLINIC via this Registration Link  :
