Along with U16 and U19 squads, a new junior program is available for players 10-12 years old.

Registration is $450 for upper-division girls, $300 for juniors.

Indoor and outdoor practices are expected, with the first session set for Jan. 13 from 9-11 a.m. at DHS. Mandatory check-in starts at 8:15 a.m.

DHS volleyball

With the Blue Devil boys volleyball season around the corner and the DHS girls in preparation for next fall, coach Julie Crawford has events planned for all local players.

For prospective Devil boys team members, conditioning and open gym time through January leading up to tryouts, which begin Feb. 4.

Players must have physical exams and concussion screening completed prior to tryouts.

For girls in grades 8-12 interested in playing DHS volleyball, an offseason training program begins Jan. 8 at the Fitness Garage, 1403 Fifth St., Suite G.

The program meets Tuesday and Thursdays and players can come from 3 to 4 p.m. or 4 to 5 p.m.

For more information, contact Crawford at jcrawford@djusd.net.

Yolo Post 77

American Legion Post 77 will host its annual crab and prawn feed on Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Yolo County Fairgrounds.

The event is designed to provide support for American Legion baseball as well as other youth sports.

The dinner costs $40 and will begin at 7:30 p.m. following a no-host social hour that starts at 6 p.m.

To buy tickets or get more information on the event, including being involved in the fundraising, call the American Legion club room at 530-662-9772 between 1 and 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

Youth track and field

The Davis Community Track and Field Club is launching a new program that targets junior high school students interested in the sport.

Beginning Jan. 7, students in seventh and eighth grades are invited to participate in a six-week conditioning program that will prepare them for a healthy and successful spring season.

“We decided to offer this program because so many parents came to us and said they needed something to help prepare their kids for participating safely in spring sports,” said former Davis High and UC Davis runner Drew Peterson, who coaches the program. “Too many kids get injured or discouraged because they leap into a competitive season without conditioning.”

Athletes will do conditioning to develop strength and agility, learn to safely warm up and warm down and be supported to participate in two optional all-comer meets. For more information and to register, contact coach Petersen at 530-210-7049.

UCD softball camp

The Aggie program will host a College ID Winter Softball Camp for girls in grades 8-11 on Saturday, Jan. 19. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at La Rue Field.

Directed by UCD head coach Karen Yoder and assistants Danielle Stines and Vicky Rios, the camp is an opportunity for athletes to display their talents and receive individualized feedback and instruction on all aspects of their game.

For more information or to register, visit www.ucdavissportscamps.com/softball.

DHS cheer clinic

Davis High cheerleaders will conduct Cheer Clinic 2013 from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday, Jan. 27, at DHS’ South Gym.

Hopefuls ages 6 to 13 are invited to learn cheers, jumps, tumbling and dance from the award-winning Blue Devil cheerleaders and their coaches.

Cost for the session is $40 in advance and $45 at the event. The fee includes a T-shirt, small group instruction by age, snacks and beverages, and a free ticket to the Feb. 1 DHS boys basketball game, which is Break the Record Night. Clinic participants also will have a chance to perform on the court that night with the Devil cheerleaders.

To learn more and reserve a spot, contact Megan Hupe at 530-753-0424 or meganhupe@gmail.com.
