Registration is now open for the Nevada Union girls volleyball clinic, directed by Nevada Union varsity coach Bob Rogers.

The camp lasts from June 19-23, with girls going into seventh and eighth grades playing from 8-11:45 a.m. and girls that will be freshman and sophomores playing from 12:30-4:30 p.m. in the Nevada Union West Gym.

The fee for the camp is $120 and includes a camp T-shirt and supplemental insurance.

Space is limited and each year has been full. For more information or for the full registration form, contact Rogers at 272-8823 (day) or 477-6762 (night).

Two opportunities exist for incoming freshman boys who want to play basketball at Nevada Union.

Starting May 16, the basketball program will have a skill and drill format for any current eighth grader interested in trying out for next year’s freshman team. Dates for the clinic are May 16, 18, 23, 25, 30 and June 1 and 8. Participation in the clinic will be the basis for the freshman summer team that plays in the Rocklin summer league and one to two summer tournaments.

“While we know and understand there will be conflicts, we expect anyone who wants to play Nevada Union basketball next year to participate,” Nevada Union varsity coach Jeff Dellis said.

The cost is $60 per player. Contact Dellis at 273-4431 for more information.

The second opportunity is the annual Miner Basketball Camp, which gives freshmen an opportunity to work with junior varsity and varsity players and staff from June 26-30. Due to construction at Nevada Union’s Ali Gym, this will be held from from 1-4 p.m. at Bear River.
