Des Moines Competitive Sand Volleyball Club
Elite Beach


Elite Beach Sand Volleyball Club

First Season of Junior League (2010)


Elite Beach was established in 2007 by Rob Batzler. The club originated as a place for competitive adult players to play 2v2. The first year of operation consisted of pickup play. In 2008 adult leagues were developed for 2v2, 4v4 and 6v6. In 2010 adult leagues for 4v4 and 6v6 were dropped and replaced by Junior 4v4 and Junior Club.


The Jr Club experienced great success and grew year after year with a focus on positive training and a fun experience.


In 2016 Elite Beach moved to a new facility just NE of Johnston, IA. The facility allowed for 2 more courts and a great outdoor atmosphere. Growth continued for the Jr Club while other offerings remained steady.


In 2018 Elite Beach partnered with the Sands Volleyball Club in order to focus on building the popular Jr Club. Adult and Jr Leagues were suspended and Elite Beach shifted to leasing courts instead of running a facility of their own. The Sand provides room to grow and a great central Des Moines location.
