We are excited to continue our 2020 Summer Sand Programming, featuring training run by NCAA Coach and AVP athlete Matt McCarthy!

Sand Volleyball

Compete and learn the beach game this summer with our 2020 Sand Volleyball training program! Beach volleyball provides athletes with a wide range of benefits that transition to the indoor game, including better conditioning, increased vertical, improved all around volleyball skill-set, and teamwork.

Additionally, we're thrilled to have guest Coach Matt McCarthy involved with our July and August Sand Volleyball programming this summer! Matt is the current Associate Head Coach for the Loyola University Men's Volleyball program as well as a seasoned AVP athlete, and brings a high level of knowledge and experience to the table for both the indoor and beach game. 

Session #2 and #3 will run 1.5 hour practices twice per week, for a total of 6 training dates. Session #2 will be held from July 6th through July 23rd, and Session #3 will run from July 27th through August 13th.  All  practices will be held at Prairie View Park - see below for additional scheduling details. Please note that you should keep the athlete's grade for the upcoming fall in mind when registering (9th grade in the fall = High School registration). 

Please email Derek Jensen at derek@division1vbc.com  with any questions!
