  • Girls Sand Volleyball (Grades 5–9)

It’s harder to move and play in sand, so you’ll learn techniques that will elevate both your mental and physical stamina on the court. Never played before? That’s OK!  Players are divided into training groups that ensure they get the most out of each session. All levels of experience are welcome, and advanced training will be available for more-experienced players.
