2019 Summer Beach Season
Elite announces that 2019, is our 11th year of beach volleyball training and competition teams. All practices will be held at Integrity Athletics, along with a number of tournament options. Integrity Athletics is home to 4 outdoor sand courts with lights. We are offering two options for Beach Volleyball this 2019 season, a Regional Tour and National Tour. Both programs will run through the end of July. We will train fundamental skills and strategies necessary to be successful at the game of volleyball. It has been proven that sand volleyball will improve your overall volleyball IQ and fundamental skills.
Beach Director Randy Cline has played on the AVP Tour and many other tours in the US since 1992. Randy has personally played both indoor and sand at the same time. Randy has personally coached many top Female players in the US and Switzerland. Graciela Santana, Paula Roca, Nancy Mason, Jennifer Kessy, Jennifer Meredith, Tiffany Rodriquez, Daniela Erni, Tyra Turner, Makare Wilson, Michelle Williams and Suzanne Stonebarger Barnes to name a few. Randy Cline believes in the growth of volleyball no matter what surface it is on and he and his staff will work hard to improve your daughter’s game.
In 2018 we had over 200 kids in our Sand program. Since 2013 we have had our athletes representing Elite at the USA Volleyball Beach Nationals and at HP Nationals along with USA National Championship teams. This year we are looking to improve our training as well as our tournament schedule. Elite Volleyball Training Center utilizes a training style in order to teach the entire game of 2 on 2 beach volleyball. We will focus on fundamental skill training, Volleyball IQ, teaching the rules of the game, and teaching how to be a great teammate. Each athlete can choose what tournaments to attend and teammates can be changed for each tournament. Competing is not required.
All Participants must have a OVR membership. If you played indoor club volleyball you do not need a separate membership for beach. If you did not you must sign up at the link below.

- Elite National Beach Tour, (Elite Hosted Events, AAU Events, and USAV National events)

We will have practice, Open Play, or a tournament as long as there is no lightning. If a coach feels that it is raining too hard to be outside, the athletes will either practice inside, or wait inside until the weather has passed. We will email families enrolled if we are going to cancel an event or practice, and we will post cancellations to the Elite Volleyball Training Center Facebook page.
