TVT Beach Team


The 2020/21 season will be the 12th 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.
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: 


Our season is broken into 4 programs:
FALL BEACH:  September – November
WINTER BEACH:  December – February
SPRING BEACH: February – April


During the season our team competes on the Texas Junior Beach Series and in 2021 will travel to several out of state tournaments during the season. See our Junior Tournaments page for more information.
Our season culminates in Southern California with several National Championship 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.

Let us know if you have any more questions. Email questions to

How do I join the team?

All new athletes start with a scheduled tryout. Beach skills are assessed to determine the best training group for each athlete. In addition to assessing skills, we look for athletes with great attitudes that want to learn this game and push themselves to be better. Please contact Cassidy at to set up a tryout.

How do I find a partner to play with?

You are not required to sign up with a partner. There will be lots of athletes looking for partners and you will have the opportunity to play with different partners at practices. It is important that you find a partner that you work well with in a game situation and we will guide you in this process. 

What should I bring to practice?

Water bottle (ice water will be provided at each practice)
Flip flops

What should I wear to practice?

You will be doing core exercises in addition to drills at each practice so it is important that you wear clothes that are lightweight, comfortable and easy to move in. Athletes wear sports bras and a tank or tee with shorts or uniform bottoms at practice on warm days and leggings and a lightweight sweatshirt on cooler days. 

What are the uniform requirements in a beach tournament?

We abide by the USA Volleyball competition regulations uniform policy. Partners should wear the same color/style during tournaments. We provide our team with a uniform that is required to be worn in all tournaments.

How are beach and indoor different?

In beach you and your partner are in total control of your own game, calling your own time outs and making all strategy decisions. You will learn all the rules, the ins and outs of running your own game, and much more as you gain experience.
