Sandstorm Training sessions

MEMBERSHIP

Sandstorm Beach Volleyball Membership consists of training sessions for junior boys and girls ages 10 to 18. We design our training to teach beach volleyball in a fun and safe environment.

Our Spring/Summer Sessions start in March and end in August, depending on the group.

 

SPRING/SUMMER TRAINING REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN

 

We have different training levels. Our fall and winter sessions focus on our Elites and Mixed training levels. The training levels listed below are for our summer sessions and use age as a baseline. However, skill drives a player’s training level. Levels are fluid to allow players to move up groups as they develop.

 

All players must register for a Gold Membership with the AVP as part of their club activities.

Sandstorm Beach Volleyball Tryouts will be held Saturday, March 12, from 10 AM to 1 PM at Leslie Groves Sand Courts in Richland (40 Park Street – Drive towards the river and look Right) are for all age groups except for the Lil’ Diggers Group (Lil’ Diggers registration is open and available on a first-come-first-serve basis for up to 16 players.  See below for details).

  • Dimes – New High School and Advanced Middle School
