The sessions are:

Defense Wins Championships
One of the things that separates levels of players is their ability to get out of trouble. Being a good defender means that you can get yourself out of a jam whether at the net, back at the baseline or somewhere in between. In this intermediate session players will develop the strategies and techniques needed to become a more consistent player by playing great defense. Saturday, Jan 12, 9 a.m.-11:30 a.m. (3.0/3.5) $55

Advanced Training
If you’re an advanced player and you want a great workout, join us for this fun and fast-paced drill session. Less instructional than our clinics, this session is all about hitting a ton of balls in the most important situations: serve & return; third shots; dinking; volleys and smashes. This will be a fun — and tiring — drill session. Saturday, Jan 12, 1 p.m.-3:30 p.m. (4.0+) $55

Super Third Shots
What you do with the third shot has a major impact on how the point will unfold. This intermediate clinic is devoted to understanding the strategies and techniques needed to be great at playing this critical moment of a point. Join us for Super Third Shots if you are serious about advancing your game. Sunday, Jan 13, 9 a.m.-11:30 a.m. (3.0/3.5) $55
