ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
The 2019/20 season will be the 11th year of our Junior Beach Volleyball Training Program in Austin. Although we have grown over the years we have never lost sight of our original goal of providing athletes with individualized coaching and attention in a small group setting. Our programs have three goals: strength & conditioning, perfecting individual skills and competing as a team.
Skills that are covered include: passing, setting, hitting, serving, overall ball control, defense, pulling, blocking, shot making and game sense. In addition, athletes will focus on learning to read the court and respond to their opponents. Athletes sign up as individuals for all programs. See each program for more details. Individual and group private lessons are also available.
All new athletes must attend a tryout. New athletes and returning athletes are grouped by skills and assigned to practice days. With competition getting tougher and more athletes playing Beach than ever before, it is ideal to have athletes join our team at a young age. Our program tends to attract a more serious athlete that is willing to dedicate the time to reach their goals. Please email Cassidy to learn more or to schedule a tryout: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our season is broken into 4 programs:
Fall Beach: September – November
Winter Beach: December – February
Spring Beach: February – April
Summer Beach: April – June
During the season our team competes on the Junior Beach Series in Texas and in 2020 will travel to several out of state tournaments during the season. See our Junior Tournaments page for more information on the Junior Beach Series.
Our season culminates in Southern California with several National Tournaments. This is a very fun few weeks in California and another great opportunity for athletes to be seen by college coaches. Parents are responsible for making all travel arrangements and registering for tournaments in California. Here are a few helpful links for parents: California Beach Volleyball Association (CBVA), Beach Volleyball Clubs of America (BVCA), AVPFirst, AAU Beach Volleyball. and USAV.
