Skill Level
There are no tryouts for Elite Beach Jr Club, however we do have a limit of 80 participants. We train players of varying skill and age levels.

How Jr Club Works
The club is geared for junior players to learn, have fun, develop skills and compete in competitive 2v2 sand volleyball. During practices players are grouped by skill and age. There are 5 courts and we have at least one coach per court plus the coaching director for each practice. The first 20 minutes of practice involve dynamic warm up and a warm up game. For the bulk of the practice drills/games are explained and demonstrated on a central court by the coaching director and a group of players, then, groups head to their assigned courts to run the drill/game with their court coaches. To end practice we play live 2v2 volleyball for the last 15-30 minutes while the coaches oversee and help with play and strategy. Aside from practice, players are encouraged to participate in local tournaments. The coaching staff will be at local tournaments actively coaching club players. Tournament are an all day affair and a lot of fun!

Our coaching staff teaches players skills and technique specific to outdoor 2v2 sand volleyball. In addition, base skills for indoor volleyball are tuned and refined. Passing, Setting, Serving and most importantly reading the game to anticipate an opponents next move.

Each player should register individually. Partnerships are not required to participate, however, for the best experience we recommended that two players sign up for club individually with the understanding that they will partner with each other for tournaments.

Players/Parents are responsible for creating partnerships for each tournament. The Elite Beach staff will help to inform club members of who needs a partner, but will not be assigning partnerships. There are a few ways of finding a partner if you don't have one for tournaments:
1. you meet someone in club who doesn't have a partner for tournaments
2. you ask a volleyball friend that is not in club to play with you in tournaments
3. two players in club who are typically partners have a scheduling conflict. one of them now needs a partner for a tournament

*Parents must sign a waiver for their child before they can participate. One waiver per child which is valid until they are 18. For club we also require a medical release.
Youth Waiver | Medical Release

Additional Fees:

Tournament Fees - Tournament Fees are not covered in the club fee since tournaments are optional. Tournaments typically run $60/team or $30/player. Registration and payment is handled by team members' parents.

Travel and Hotels - Travel fees are not covered in the club fee. If you need to travel for any of the tournaments please note that you are responsible to make those arrangements.

Due to limited amount of space, we have a no refund policy in order to ensure teams that sign up are serious about entering club. In the case of Juniors, it is understandable that there may be other summer conflicts that you are waiting on schedules for. In that case, you should sign up, but don't pay right away. You can then pay once you know the other schedules. If we get close to filling up, I send out notifications to those with payment pending to ask them to pay or lose their spot.

*Practices that are canceled due to weather are not be made up due to court availability.
