2024 Summer Beach Training

Elite announces that 2024, is our 16th year of beach volleyball training and competition teams. All practices will be held at Sports Ohio, Dublin, OH, along with a number of tournament options. 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. 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.

Beach Director Joe Jackson will head up the scheduling and training for the 2024 season along with Randy Cline. Randy 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. Elite Volleyball Training Center believes in the growth of volleyball no matter what surface it is on. Our staff will work hard to improve your athlete’s game.
