The IVL sponsors adult volleyball clinics in February and November at Wilcox High School in the city of Santa Clara, or at Peterson Middle School in Sunnyvale. Both individuals and teams can sign up. Clinics are held on Saturdays for four hours (with an hour of optional open play afterwards). Cost for clinic is $50/person.
Send an e-mail to the IVL Office to be added to the clinic mailing list.
Many of the skills in volleyball are covered along with team defense and offense. Individuals are broken up into groups ahead of time so they can go through the drills with other players of similar backgrounds. You can view photos of past clinics.
