Reign Beach Volleyball--2017

4107025It is widely recognized that indoor players benefit from sand training so come and have fun in the sand and sun!  Increased vertical, improved court awareness, and ball control are just a few benefits! Players may fall in love with playing in the sand and decide to pursue beach as a collegiate sport!

The Reign Beach program is designed to provide players who are in grades 5 -12, with the opportunity to learn and improve both the technical and strategic components of sand volleyball.  Training sessions will focus on several areas of beach play:  skills needed to compete successfully in the sand,  conditioning for beach play, and the incorporation of beach strategy.    A low player-to- coach ratio of 6:1 provides optimal individual instruction.  If players have a partner, they will work together during training sessions but everyone is welcome and will be paired for training.  Players will be grouped by age and ability (12s/14s, 14s/16s, 16s/18s).

Players will be provided with the necessary information to register for sand tournaments locally and throughout Oregon, Washington and California.  Teams may decide to compete at many tournaments, including the Seaside Tournament, or players may opt to only participate in training sessions with no sand tournament play.  The training fee of $175.00 per session includes sand court time, instruction with high quality experienced coaches and a jersey.  Players who attend both sessions will also receive a sweatshirt.

All skill levels are welcome and encouraged to participate! If you have any questions, please email andreadoerfler@nwreignvolleyball.com
