Group Making- How To Sign Up

 

Fill out Winter Grouping and Player Questionnaire to be considered for a spot in the program 

 

We will use a process similar to summer to create groups. We are not planning to hold tryouts for this program. Players and families will help create their own groups, which the club will then use to create the final groups. Returning players will be placed in groups based on information from summer and feedback from the grouping form. Players and families new to the club and/or who did not participate in summer will create groups of 4-12 players. Players new to the club and/or having trouble making a group, we will assist in creating groups for you.

For players new to the club and without a group, we will hold 12 person single day training camps leading up to the season to assist in group making. The dates of those are flexible and have not been set.

Every player interested in participating in the season must complete the Winter Grouping and Player Questionnaire 

More About The Training Group Program

 

Training Groups (Junior High and High School)

 

We established the first Training Groups program in the Bay Area summer of 2013. 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 athletes 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 athletes to be self sufficient and confident in their abilities as a player, manager and communicator.

 

A huge aspect of the success of our training group program is our coaching staff. The training group program has the best beach volleyball coaches available in the area, and players get the opportunity to work closely with them in a focused and fun environment.
