Court Culture

We believe beach volleyball and access to high level coaches is for everyone, not just the pros.

Our tried and proven methods will help any player become comfortable and formidable on the court in welcoming, and social classes!

Our professional coaches know how to get players out of their shells and get everyone on the court laughing and cheering on their peers. (It is an awesome way to make friends for this reason!)

201: How It Works

During each of the 16 lessons of regular season, there will be classes that focus on particular concepts, like serve receive or hitting. Our main priorities will include teaching players technique, strategy and safety.

At the 201 level we focus on: serve receive, setting, expanding the offensive toolbox, team defense, competitive serving.

And of course our coaches are excellent resources for other information including how to get involved in leagues, pick up games and tournaments.

End Of Season Bootcamp

The week after classes finish we will have a Sunday morning bootcamp 9AM-1PM to refresh important concepts before our final week of private sessions, evaluations and graduation!

Imagine Sunday Funday plus volleyball. 4 hours of fun in the sun.

Tryouts

At the end of each month, there is an opportunity to advance levels through a tryout with the head coach of the next level. This is to best accommodate students who progress their skills quickly so they are always able to be in their true level. You have to book your tryout with the head coach of the next level.
