Beach Club FAQ's

  1. Can my son play in the beach club and in the indoor club?

    • Yes! Beach club practices have zero interference with the Bay to Bay indoor schedule. Players from all clubs and skill levels are welcome to tryout.

  2. Is beach volleyball good for indoor players?

    • Absolutely! Beach volleyball is the best cross-training tool for indoor players. Unlike indoors, there are only two players on a team. This maximizes the contacts for each person since both players will have to pass, set, hit, block, and play defense in every single rally.

  3. Do I need a partner in order to sign-up?

    • No, it is not necessary to have a partner when you sign up. Selected athletes will be placed in competition groups with players of similarly based skill and age levels. All tournaments are "King of the Beach" format, which means that players compete with a variety of partners throughout the day and individual points are tracked (read more about "KOB" format here).

Time Commitment

Spring Beach Club is a 3-4 times a month commitment from February - April. This training schedule allows players to participate in the indoor club season with zero conflict with indoor tournaments and Bay to Bay practice schedules.

All practices take place from 8:00 am - 11:00 am on Sunday mornings at West Valley College.

Competition Groups

Beach volleyball is a 2 on 2 game. While this means that players must compete with a partner, it does not mean that you have to have a partner to join the beach club. Under the supervision of court and lead coaches, players in the beach club will be broken into small groups of similarly based skill and age levels. These competition groups allow for maximum individual contacts, while still maintaining the "game like" atmosphere. When it comes to competing in tournaments, if you do not have a set partner, we will try and put players of similar age and skill levels together.

 

Each competition group will practice at the same time. This allows the entire club (coaches and players) to interact during training group sessions.
