Sandstorm Beach Volleyball
Sandstorm Beach Volleyball Membership consists of training sessions for junior boys and girls ages 10 to 18. We design our training to teach beach volleyball in a fun and safe environment.
Our Spring/Summer Sessions start in March and end in August, depending on the group.
SPRING/SUMMER TRAINING REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
We have different training levels. Our fall and winter sessions focus on our Elites and Mixed training levels. The training levels listed below are for our summer sessions and use age as a baseline. However, skill drives a player’s training level. Levels are fluid to allow players to move up groups as they develop.
All players must register for a Gold Membership with the AVP as part of their club activities.
Sandstorm Beach Volleyball Tryouts will be held Saturday, March 12, from 10 AM to 1 PM at Leslie Groves Sand Courts in Richland (40 Park Street – Drive towards the river and look Right) are for all age groups except for the Lil’ Diggers Group (Lil’ Diggers registration is open and available on a first-come-first-serve basis for up to 16 players. See below for details).
Tryouts are simply for us to assess skill and place a player in the proper groups.
We have different training levels.
See below for more details.
TRYOUT REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
The Elite Level is designed for experienced players able to perform advanced volleyball skills, think critically, and communicate on the court. Training will focus on competition, skill enhancement, and in-game strategy. The goal is to climb through the AVP ranks at home or on the road if you choose. This Level will be limited to no more than 16 players in total. Placement in this group is determined by a designated Elite tryout and will be open to players in all divisions. Players who try out for this Level and are not selected will move back to their regular assessed Level. Some players may also be offered to move into the Elite Level as the season progresses.
This Level includes:
Aces – High School and Advanced Middle School
This Level is designed for experienced high school and advanced middle school players. This level focuses on more advanced skill development, communication, teamwork, and competition while maintaining positive and fun vibes. This Level will be limited to no more than 16 players in total.
Dimes – High School and Middle School
This Level is designed for new high school and experienced middle school players. Players should have the ability to regularly serve a regular size volleyball (beach volleyballs are lighter than regular indoor volleyballs but heavier than the volley lite) in play. This Level focuses on more skill development, communication, teamwork, and competition while maintaining positive and fun vibes. This Level will be limited to no more than 16 players in total.
Sand Slingers – Middle School and Advanced Elementary
Sand Slingers is designed for middle school and experienced elementary school players. This Level focuses on skills development, communication, teamwork, and competition in a fun and positive environment. This Level will be limited to no more than 16 players in total.
Lil’ Diggers – New and DevelopingLil’ Diggers is designed for players with little to no volleyball experience or that may need to work on developing specific skills such as serving, passing, setting, or all of the above. The idea here is to teach the skills, teach the game, be positive, and have fun. This level will be limited to no more than 16 players in total.
