Frequently Asked Questions
What types of training packages do you offer?

Do you offer beach volleyball training for adults?
We currently do not offer weekly beach volleyball training for adults. If you are an adult that is interested in training on the sand, please contact coach Traci to set up private training or small group training. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you offer beach volleyball training for boys?
We currently do not offer weekly beach volleyball training for boys. If you are junior or would like to set up training for your son, please contact coach Traci to set up private training or small group training. Email: email@example.com
Can I just show up to practice on the days I want to train?
Unfortunately no. We require that all athletes pre-register for training at least one hour before the start of the class. This ensures that all practices are properly staffed and planned to maximize the athlete's training.
Do I register for a tournament as an individual or a team?
You will be asked to register as a team. The registration/tournament fee covers both players on the roster.
Do I need a partner to sign up for the tournaments?
You do not need a partner to sign-up for a tournament, however you will need to finalize and register your partner before the day of the tournament. Most of our tournaments are pairs tournaments. This means that two players are required to compete. The KOB/QOB tournaments are an exception. For these tournaments you would register as an individual player.
Which AVP membership should I get?
As a player, the two memberships that are recommended are the AVP “Gold” or the AVP “Silver” membership. The SILVER membership is for players that want to play in the local AVP America sanctioned events or other AVP America sanctioned events throughout the country. The GOLD membership is for those players who wish to participate in AVP Pro/AVP Next Gold events or junior players who wish to compete in AVP America Junior 4-Star events.
How long do the AVP memberships last?
All AVP memberships last for 365 days from the date of purchase.
Is there a dress code for tournaments?
For our tournaments we suggest dressing according to the local weather that day. In the warmer months we suggest hats, visors and sunglasses. Our female junior athletes are not permitted to wear bikinis during tournaments or training. They are permitted to wear shorts and a sports bra during hotter temperatures. Our male junior athletes can choose to compete with or without a shirt.
Is there anything I can wear to protect my feet from the heat/cold?
Are there different rules to beach volleyball than indoor volleyball?
There are several rules that are different between indoor and beach volleyball. Most notably, in beach volleyball a player may not receive a serve with open hands. Instead the player must make fists or play the ball with their palms. No finger action is allowed on that first contact. In beach volleyball players may not tip the ball over the net with an open hand, but they must use their knuckles. In beach volleyball the block counts as one of the three touches whereas in indoor volleyball it does not. Therefore, in beach volleyball, if a player at the net touches the ball their team only has two more touches to get the ball back over the net.

Are there beach volleyball scholarships?
There are currently 67 NCAA D1 schools that offer beach volleyball scholarships and 17 NCAA D2 schools that offer up to 5 scholarships per team. These schools can offer up to 6 full scholarships per team. Athletic scholarships can be split into partial awards in any proportion up to the maximum allowed. For example, an NCAA I School could award 12 players each a 1/2 scholarship and not exceed the limit of 6 scholarships per team. NCAA D1 schools that do not sponsor indoor Women’s Volleyball are allowed an annual limit of 8 equivalency scholarships for Beach Volleyball. The NJCAA consists of 18 varsity programs that are permitted to offer up to 14 athletic scholarships. For more information please visit https://scholarshipstats.com/beachvolleyball

What is the benefit of earning AVP points?
AVP America is the largest grassroots outdoor volleyball organization in the United States. By earning AVP points in Las Vegas, each player will become part of the AVP national ranking system. The more points they have the more opportunities they have to compete in national championship tournaments that take place across the country. In addition, the points earned in Las Vegas will help a player improve their overall seed when they play in other parts of the country. AVP rankings are based on an athlete's best four (4) results (domestic or international) within the eligible window. For Junior and Amateur players (non-Pro players), the eligible window is defined as the last 365 days.
5 Benefits of Beach Volleyball for Indoor Players
1. Improve weaknesses
Beach volleyball players have to pass, set, dig, serve and attack. Playing beach volleyball will help you become a well-rounded player
2. Improve Ball Control
Playing outside on the sand, in the sun and with the wind will force you to become a more adaptable player, more relaxed in chaotic plays.
3. Improve Volleyball IQ
With only 2 players on the court, it's up to you to read the game and anticipate plays better.
4. Improve Your Speed & Agility
Playing volleyball on sand is similar to adding a weight vest while you play. The sand creates an unstable surface forcing your body to adapt with increased strength over time.
5. Improved Communication
Playing with only one other person forces you to communicate each and every play. Beach athletes learn to strategize and create game plans together.
