Training Groups

Training Groups are generally for the more experienced and advanced players in each age group. For younger, newer players we offer the FUNdamentals program.


We established the first Training Groups program in the Bay Area five years ago. Since then, we've continued to innovate and excel at providing the best training to our athletes using this model. Our Training Groups program has produced more NCAA DI beach volleyball atheltes than any other program in northern California. 

Training Groups are the equivalent to a beach "team". In creating training groups, we are assembling groups of similarly skilled and like minded players to train together. Often times, Training Groups represent a higher level of play and experience, but can also be offered at beginning skill levels.

Training Groups provide a platform and environment for advanced skill and game play development. Players and coaches are able to work closely with one another to develop, plan, and achieve goals. All aspects of beach volleyball are addressed by the coaches, and we go beyond teaching just the skills. Given beach volleyball is a player driven sport- during gameplay coaches often have little input, players must find and retain partners, players self manage their schedules and tournaments- we prepare our atheltes to be self sufficient and confident in their abilities as a player, manager and communicator.

Our Training Group program provides players with the best beach volleyball coaches in the Bay Area. 

How do I join a group?
Placement into a Training Group requires a tryout. We have two levels, Elite and Advanced. Placement into either group is determined by tryout performance. Returning players are generally requested to tryout each season, which helps us evaluate the age group as a whole. Tryout dates are listed on the tryout page. We hold tryouts before each season.
