When is beach club volleyball season?
Typically beach club season starts with tryouts in June when indoor is winding down but since beach is getting bigger it is now a year round sport. Beach Elite offers club seasons for Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer! When kids are on Summer Break we practice 5 days a week and also include summer camps for those interested. The bulk of beach tournaments are on a weekly basis from July through August so our practices. We play in CBVA tournaments and also host our tournaments. As beach volleyball grows we are seeing that the season is getting longer and longer with tournaments in the Fall, WInter and Spring. Beach Elite holds practices and clinics year round to keep our athletes ready to also compete in these off season tournaments.
How many times a week do you practice?
During Summer season we practice an average of 4 days per week (Monday-Thursday) and an in house tournament on Friday. In the off season (September-May) we practice three to four days a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday)
