Teams will consist of 2, 3 and 4 player teams which will be matched together based on skill level.  Players can formulate their own teams for the purpose of tournament play.  Coaches will make recommendations as requested.

We are aware that summer schedules are fluid.  With that in mind, we anticipate players missing some practices.  It is important and considerate to communicate with our coaches in advance so practices will be adjusted accordingly.

The cost of our program is $650 for a six week program at 3 days a week. The cost includes insurance, sand facility, uniforms and coach’s fee. Fee does not include CBVA membership or tournament fees. In the event the player’s summer schedule it too hectic to commit to a four, six or eight week program, there is also a drop-in fee of $30 per session.  This should be paid at the beginning of that week you are planning to attend.

Benefits of Beach Volleyball

This is one of the best ways for indoor volleyball players to improve their skills. Doubles provides the best in random, game-like volleyball experiences with a high number of contacts per person. Each player's weaknesses are practiced throughout the game - if you're a bad passer, you get served; if you're a bad setter, you partner is served and you must set. You are forced to become a better all-around player.  Beach Volleyball play will:

  • Extend your range on defense as you are required to cover the entire court. 
  • Develop communication skills with a single partner before moving on to a 6-person system.
  • Enhance strength and conditioning through increased movement.
  • Teach equal part in the responsibility of every play with your partner

Whether it's on the beach or grass, 4-on-4 or 2-on-2, outdoor volleyball is a fun and effective way to gain valuable playing experience and to get an edge on other players. Additionally, Beach Volleyball has become a College recruitment sport.  Beach has less height preference than indoor and can be less strenuous on the player’s muscles consequently increasing the player’s volleyball career.
