Youth training programs

Our youth training programs are a great way for your child to get exercise and learn valuable lessons in a supportive and safe environment.

The benefits your child will gain from our programs include:

  • Meeting new friends around their age with similar interests,
  • Developing teamwork and leadership skills while gaining confidence in themselves,
  • Getting great exercise and have fun doing it!
  • Training on sand offers some unique benefits, including:
  • Greater levels of strength and fitness due to the high resistance and dynamic surface,
  • Reduced risk of injuries since sand is low impact.

We will tailor each program based on the skill level of the group, both individually and as a whole. Each child will receive an appropriate level of instruction which will challenge them to improve and achieve manageable goals.

Children who are new to beach volleyball will learn basic skills and fundamental techniques such as bumping, setting, and hitting with the proper form. They will also learn basic game strategy such as positioning on the court and how to support their teammates.

Experienced children will expand beyond the basics and learn techniques such as digging, setting and hitting in transition, tomahawk receptions, blocking, advanced hitting techniques (e.g., pokey, drop shots, cut shots, rainbow shots). They will also receive theoretical training such as reading opponent attacks, defensive strategies, court vision, and more!

Personal and Group Trainings

In addition to our camp program, we offer personal and group training sessions throughout the week for an additional fee. We can accommodate groups of 1-16 people. If you are an individual interested in group training we can place you into a group appropriate for your skill level
