Our story

We love beach volleyball and want to provide a year round platform for juniors to learn the game and play at their highest level. We are beach volleyball players ourselves and have loved this game since we dipped our toes in the sand and want everyone to have the opportunity to play this sport we love so much.

 

Our mission

Now that Women’s Beach Volleyball is an NCAA Sanctioned Championship Sport the opportunities for athletes to play on a scholarship are multiplying quickly. We want to help young athletes achieve their dreams of playing at the Collegiate Level and beyond. Perhaps most importantly, we want to develop young people into confident athletes, great teammates, tough competitors and life-long lovers of this sport.

Through our own experience as juniors, collegiate and professional athletes we’ve experienced the benefits of playing competitive sports. We believe that sport has the capacity to equip young people with invaluable skills and life lessons that few other opportunities provide. We want to share our love for and knowledge of the game so that all young athletes have the same opportunities we were so fortunate to have.
