Skill Clinics Availabile for 12's!

Back, by popular demand!! If you are trying out for our 12's (which means that you will not be older than 12 on August 21, 2015), you are invited to register for our pre-tryout skill sessions. They will be held each Sunday in October from 2:00-4:00 pm at Rudder High School.  The cost is only $15 if you register in advance and the cost will go to $25 if you wait until the day of the clinic (if space is available). There are 4 clinics  and you can attend any one or all of the clinics.

One last note is that you must be registered and paid for BVJ tryouts to be eligible to attend the skill sessions.

We are hosting a pre tryout clinic on November 2 from 2:00-4:00 for 13's and from 4:15-6:15 for 14's at Rudder High School.  BVJ coaches will be leading the girls through many of the tryout drills and offering feedback to help them improve their performance at tryouts.

There will not be any evaluations. It will strictly be to let girls get in the gym to get familiar with the structure of tryouts and get the opportunity to get some coaching input. 

 Enrollment is limited so sign up today! It only cost $20, but you must also be paid and registered for Tryouts for us to accept your registration for the PreTryout clinic.
