IMPORTANT - Please Read Information Below Before Registering

Does my child need to have a training & playing partner in order to register for this program?

  • If an athlete joins with another athlete - they will train with that athlete during the training sessions and compete with that athlete during the tournaments.
  • If an athlete joins without a partner - they will still receive outstanding training during the training sessions. We will try to match that athlete up with a partner from the training program to play in tournaments - but can't always be guaranteed.

Do both athletes have to be the same age in order to train and compete during the tournaments? 

  • It is fine if the partners aren't the same age.  However, the teams in the tournaments are grouped by age. (18 & under,  16 & under,  14 & under,  12 & under).  There may be a situation where the team may have to play in a higher age division (the age of the older partner) b/c an older partner my not compete in a younger aged tournament, but the younger partner can compete in an older aged tournament.  For more information of the age requirements click on this link:

Does the athlete need to have experience in doubles beach volleyball to join? 

  • No - athletes don't need specific experience in Doubles Beach Volleyball to join, however Doubles Beach Volleyball is quite a challenging sport and it's recommended that athletes have a background in the sport of volleyball. It's recommended that if they join this program with another partner (that they want to play in tournaments with) that they should have similiar volleyball background/experience/skills.  It makes for a more enjoyable experience for both partners.

What is the Nickerson Beach Facility like?

  • It's a fantastic training facility.  It's very conveniently located, just 3/4 mile off of the Loop Pkwy. in Lido Beach.  There are sand volleyball courts, an adjacent indoor facility we use for occasional "classroom" type learning sessions (Video Analysis, X's & O's, Strategy, etc.), numerous bathrooms, showers and plenty of free parking (after 5pm).
