Winter 2017 tryouts now open for registration.

Another season is nearly upon us, and we’re very excited to step back into the sand with our returning Compete & Perform athletes and welcome some newcomers to the group.

Our 2017 Winter Tryouts are for the female COMPETE and PERFORM teams that will train 2-3x/month from January to April. Athletes should have some prior beach volleyball experience or a high level of indoor training. These training sessions are to help our athletes prepare for the summer beach volleyball season by developing strong fundamental skills, allowing for more advanced training in the summer. The winter training will be low intensity and very technical to avoid overtraining our athletes who are playing indoor club volleyball as well. Our training is meant to be complementary to indoor club volleyball, and we will work closely with our selected athletes to create a training schedule that  supports their overall technical, physical, and mental development for both beach and indoor. No partner is necessary for tryouts, but partner requests will be taken into consideration.

The head coaches for our winter program will be Brian Hiebert, Sean Sanderson and Craig Moore. Together they bring a wealth of experience in working with youth athletes in preparation for Provincial and National competition, the FIVB Youth and Junior World Championships, and NCAA Beach Volleyball.

The winter training schedule will run from early January until mid-April, when we will stop training to allow athletes to focus fully on indoor Provincials and Nationals. Training sessions will be in small groups with 6-8 athletes per coach in order to offer individualized feedback and support. Exact training dates will be determined with the selected athletes after tryouts, but will take place on some combination of Mondays & Thursdays after 4:30pm. We will do our best to accommodate indoor training schedules when creating the finalized beach training schedule. Cost for the winter training will be $40/session, typically with about 10 sessions from Jan-April, so a rough cost of $400, including a Sideout Beach T-Shirt.
