What Does A Better at Beach Event Look Like?

Our 3-day camps in California start on Friday morning. Courts will already be set up, so you're free to use them even before the group warmup. That night players usually go out for a first group dinner together.

On Friday and Saturday we have three group training sessions, one in the morning and two in the afternoon, with one-hour breaks in between. 

These group training sessions are 2 - 2.5 hours long and include instruction, drills, and competitive games.

On Sundays we will have 3 group training sessions as well for 2x 2 hours and 1x 1 hour, with optional free play thereafter. 

At lunch everyday, you'll have your group strategy session to help improve your individual tactics and approach on an off the court. These will help you become the most well-rounded beach volleyball athlete possible.

Players are separated into courts by skill level as determined by our organizers. 

Your California Clinic Will Be Laser-Focused On Your Skills

Each training session will have a very specific goal to get you better at a certain part of the game. This way you can work on one or two aspects without distraction. Our experience has shown that this is the best way to actually significantly improve your beach volleyball skills in a short amount of time.

Our instructors are professional FIVB & AVP players and experienced coaches. They will be giving you the tailored feedback you need. This means that you'll know exactly what part of a technique you're doing wrong, and how to remedy it.

People who have taken one of our clinics or camps often comment on how our coaching approach has finally helped them take the next step because it addressed exactly what they needed.
