Clinic sessions are skill based practice sessions designed to help improve their participants’ skills to supplement their club’s practices and games or to provide them with the opportunity to work on their own for fun of it. Participants in our clinics achieve a greater confidence with the ball from the proven drills and hands on instruction provided. These focused classes are a great way to improve your technical skills and feel more comfortable in game situations so you can have fun playing the most popular game in the world.
