Summer Info

Summer is a unique season. It is dominated by tournaments. Local training time is limited in summer due to the density of great events taking place in southern California. As a club, we generally use the month of June to prepare ourselves for competing in southern California in July. It is recommended that players sign up for local CBVA events in June, the coached socal events in July, and any other events they want to fit in between and around. We will not be coaching at EVERY event in socal, but players have the opportunity to play many events in a short amount of time. We recommend playing as many tournaments as you can! Below is an explanation of the different program options available to players.
