3. prepare yourself to be a leader on your school team this coming year.
There are two summer sessions, each offering boys and girls age-group programs at the 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U levels supported by 20 coaches.
JO Quals Session (21 May - 24 June): Evaluations will occur during the first two weeks. Everyone who wants to compete at the Central California Junior Olympics Qualification tournament will be placed on a roster which will be announced on 31 May. Practice, competition, and pricing information can be found here.
JO Session (25 June - 29 July): Athletes on teams that qualify for Junior Olympics will continue into this session. Some non-qualifying athletes may be added to qualifying teams as space allows.
