SUMMER PLAYING OPPORTUNITIES: CAMPS, CLINICS, DOUBLES

A great way to prepare for fall tryouts is to attend individual camps or clinics, condition, and to simply play as much as you can during the summer…so grab a few friends and play ball!  The options vary from overnight camp to drop-in games at a local court.

 

Here’s where you can find great information:

 

  • westpotomacsports.org.  Go to Girls Varsity Volleyball, News or Headlines, to find out about WP Volleyball Youth FUNdamentals Camp

 

 

 

Have Fun!
