ADSL offers kids' volleyball clinic on summer Saturdays

All Dorchester Sports and Leadership (ADSL) will host its first volleyball clinic in over a decade on Saturday, July 28 at 10 a.m. at Town Field in Dorchester. The 90-minute clinic is free and open to ages 8 through 14 and will be happening every Saturday until the start of the school year.

Founded in 1983, ADSL was created to provide all neighborhood youth and ethnicities with the space for reconciliation and the opportunity to play on the same team. Since then, it’s expanded to include after-school tutoring, nutrition education, and baseball, basketball, rugby, softball, and now volleyball teams.

The league will be taught by a high school coach from the South Shore, assisted by both high school and college volleyball players. It will be instructional, with teams and matches organized after a few weeks.

“It’s going to be an outstanding program,” said Kevin George, a parent and organizer of the volleyball clinic. “We’re very inclusive of everybody, and we think it’s a good sport that’s growing throughout the country.”

He added, “I’m hoping it gives the community a nice, physical activity, where the kids can meet others and play a new sport, and enjoy each others’ company.”
