Where are the Clinics located and how do I get there?
This year, Tufts University will allow us to host the entire JVBC Clinic lineup on our beautiful campus here in Medford, Massachusetts. All clinics are held on the main volleyball courts in the historic Cousens Gymnasium (built-in 1932) which was remodeled and updated in the summer of 2009. Cousens Gym is located in the Tisch Sports & Fitness Center at 161 College Ave, Medford, MA 02155. Upon arrival please park across the street in the Cousens Gym lot and proceed into the main lobby of the Tisch Athletic Center. The registration table is located at the top of the stairs in the main foyer and will be open 30 minutes prior to the start of clinics for check-in. Click here for directions to campus. A few days prior to the start of each clinic, we will send a detailed email about parking, pick up & drop off, and registration to all participants and their families.

What do I need to bring/wear?
Do I need to bring lunch? NOPE!
We are SO EXCITED to announce that our dining halls are OPEN again this summer! A full LUNCH is included with your registration fee for all full 2-day and 3-day clinics! All campers will walk to and eat at Tufts University's outstanding Dewick Dining Hall which offers a variety of healthy all-you-can-eat/drink options. Vegan, Gluten-Free, and vegetarian options will be available as well. Pace yourself!

Will the College Recruiting Q & A Sessions still happen post-clinic?
As usual, we will be able to provide our clinic Q & A recruiting sessions. It is our hope to work in a general Q & A during one of our chalk talk sessions, but we cannot guarantee it at this time. If we are unable to answer your specific questions during clinic hours, we will be happy to provide individual feedback and college insight by phone or email (for those who request it) after our camp season ends. We will not be available post clinic to meet with players individually. Thank you for understanding!
How has COVID-19 affected the clinics and what precautions have been taken?
The priority of our JVBC Staff will always be the safety and well-being of our participants, coaches, and support staff. As we look forward to operating our clinics this spring and summer on the campus of Tufts University, we will work closely with them to adjust our programming in order to follow the strict guidelines of the CDC, the state of Massachusetts, and local health officials as well as our University protocols. We respect that they are in place to promote the safety of the community and reduce the impact of COVID-19. Guidelines will be updated as guidance changes. We will always prioritize the safety of all involved and communicate clearly about COVID-19 safety protocols throughout the clinics.
TUFTS UNIVERSITY & JVBC COVID PROTOCOLS:
For more details:
Does JVBC have a "Test and Stay policy"?
At this time, we do not have a test and stay policy. Vaccinated players who are symptomatic and or become symptomatic will not be allowed to participate. We are working closely with Tufts University to develop clinic policies and as guidance changes. Our goal is to provide a safe and inclusive summer camp based on the most current recommendations for our state, town, and campus. If protocols change, we will make sure to notify all participants and their families.
What if I/or someone I was training with tests positive for COVID-19 and or someone I am a close contact with outside of the clinics?
