Girls "Beach Only"

Indoor club is no longer the only option!

One of the special seasons we run, a "Beach Only" Training Group, is part of the year round beach concept we pioneered in northern California. Contrary to the name, we expect and encourage athletes to play their indoor school seasons. This program takes the place of indoor club for athletes wanting to transition to "beach only". For this group, we run tryouts in November, and in many ways parallel the indoor club schedule. Interested players are encouraged to tryout and participate in our Fall Season. Generally, the program runs January-April. Group to group and season to season there can be some variation, so please see information below.

Quick Facts:

  • Practice 2-3 time per week (depends on tournament schedule).
  • Groups practicing at West Valley and in Santa Cruz.
