About Beach Volleyball

Sand volleyball is growing in popularity because it is a COLLEGIATE sport and it is THE BEST CROSS TRAINING for indoor and it is FUN!!!

Beach volleyball is a 2 on 2 game. While this means that players must compete with a partner, you do not have to have a partner to sign up for tryouts.  Players without a partner who are selected to the team will be paired with another player of complimentary skill level.

To play on the Elite team you need to be on a Power team or have a coach recommendation, anyone who played club in the 2020 season can play on the Premier team.  Coaches will divide players into teams/training groups of similarly based skill and age levels. 

All ages in the Elite group will practice at the same time, and all Premier Teams will be at the same time. Each court/team and age group is limited to 12 players.
