Description: VA Sand Spring/Summer Team is designed for athletes ages 12-18, looking explore the game of beach volleyball at a deeper level, or for indoor players looking to increase their level of play during their offseason. This program will help players have a blast while developing skills required to be successful in the sand or the hardcourt. There will be technical & tactical training and a focus on playing competitive games for fun. Coaches will be offering specific feedback during training and then will coach athletes during competitive play.
Tryouts: April 30th 2:00-4:00pm This program will require athletes to tryout, and then be placed into training groups based on skill level & age. Limited spots are available and all athletes not offered a spot will be refunded their registration.
Practices: VA Sand Spring/Summer Team athletes will practice 2 times per week. Depending on what training group they are assigned. Both our beginner/intermediate and advanced groups will practice Tuesday/Thursday evening. Athletes will be divided by skill level at practices to increase competition and maximize training time.
Tournaments: With many tournaments in the region (within 3 hours), as well as VA Sand Volleyball hosted events - our Spring/Summer team athletes are encouraged to play, but have no mandatory tournaments unless included in the packages provided. Coaches will be at VA Sand hosted events, as well as regional events. We believe that training and competing are both essential for maximizing growth and development as athletes, teammates and successful future leaders.
Partners: Spring/Summer Team athletes do not need a partner to sign up for the program. VA Sand encourages players to play with many different partners throughout training to increase development in a variety of areas. Coaches will partner players for tournaments included in packages.
