After all the planning and work leading up to the 2017 Pre-Season Coaches and Player Clinic we can all reflect on a spectacular event held in Buffalo, NY the weekend of December 2-3, 2017. Over 60 coaches and 80 players walked away from the courts with a higher volleyball IQ and motivation to work hard during each opportunity to train and compete. Many thanks to clinicians Jeff Ptak, Jorge Ralat, Ivan Jose Matos, Omar Rivera, Alain Arseneau, Matt Zbyszewski, Jodi Zbyszewski. and the local coaches who helped out on the courts. Thanks also to the contributions by Gadget from The SpikeNet, John Hughes and the Western Empire Volleyball Association Board of Directors and Tie Dye Bros. Coach Dan Johnson and Coach Rocco Lucci heard the buzz in the gym about future summer camps and fall clinics so they'll start planning. Stay tuned and watch the awesome video links below...
