Year-Round Beach Programs
Want to play beach volleyball in college? Want to improve your indoor skill set? Simply Love beach volleyball? Want to be the absolute best volleyball player you can be? Whatever the reason, we have the program for you!
The Year-Round Programs have different tiers depending on what your goals are as a volleyball player. If beach volleyball is your passion, our College Athlete Program and Full-Time Programs are for you, and if supplementing your indoor training is your goal, our Full-Time and Part-Time Programs could be for you. Each level has a different commitment level with the College Athlete Program being for only the most dedicated.
We are going to continue offering the LITE program, who is this program for? Those indoor players that are advanced and play on teams that run through nationals in June. It could also be for multi-sport athletes who have other commitments This program only runs through May, players in this group will have to join one of the Spring/Summer programs to continue.
Our Year Round Program was developed with input from college coaches across the country. We asked what they wanted from their athletes when they showed up on campus, we listened and created our curriculum on those requests. The practices are intense, and conditioning is a huge staple for our programs. If hard work is appealing to you, then the Year-Round Program and Carolina Beach is the place for you.
All players will be required to fill out a contract. This contract is an agreement that the coaches will do everything they can to help grow the player both as a person and help the player achieve their desired goals. The player promises that while coaches are coaching the players will be attentive, will work hard giving maximum effort while at practice. They will also agree they will be on time ready to go at the given start times for all functions. They will also be agreeing to encourage the other players, pick them up when they are down, help motivate them and most importantly, while at tournaments all players are expected to cheer our other family members on when they are not playing. Failure to do so will result in corrective action.
For the tournaments on our schedule... Coaches will be provided to assist throughout the tournament. Depending on the number of teams that go, will determine how many coaches we will have in attendance. However not all teams will have coaches at all matches. We will do our best to be at as many games as possible. We encourage you all to participate in as many as possible, you learn something new every time you play, especially our travel tournaments.
Partners - Partners are not required to sign up for any of our programs. Before you agree to play with anyone at a tournament, you must first receive the approval of the Director. Players in our CAP program must play in all of our scheduled tournaments and must play with as many different players as possible. Our goal every season will be to create pods, and within those pods are similar skilled players that you will play with until everyone has played with each other. Please notes that pods are an ideal scenario, and may not always work out. For smaller non scheduled tournaments you are able to play with anyone you choose, assuming they are not playing for a rival club. CAP players will get first choice followed by Full-Time then Part-Time followed finally by any of our Development players. If there are any issues please see the Director and we will handle.

Learn all skills to better your indoor game as well as beach.

Colleges recruit beach players, which offer more scholarship opportunities.
Beach Volleyball is the fastest growing sport in the history of the NCAA.
Divisions: We will break practices out by Age Group. Each age group will have divisions based on ability/experience. By grouping players together in ability based divisions our coaching staff is able to provide ability specific training and accelerate the overall learning curve.
Tournaments: Tournaments are not required, but are a great way to demonstrate and apply the skills we practice in a match setting. The competitive environment in a tournament is a great learning experience in itself and we will offer coaching support at many tournaments this season.
Strength and Conditioning: There is no better way to get in shape and gain quickness than to train in the sand. All practices will include specific cardio and sand plyo training either at the beginning or end of practice. Our strength and conditioning program, if performed correctly and consistently, will provide increased quickness, stamina, strength, and vertical leap ability.
Club Membership Packages: Every registered player will receive a club membership package that includes a Carolina Beach tee-shirt, Carolina Beach Tournament jersey, and other possible Carolina Beach accessories.
Requirements: A willingness and desire to learn the beach game and the ability to have fun doing so. This is not your picnic volleyball program. We will focus primarily on a skill set one day and spend more time playing on the other day.
Playing Partner: You do not need to have a playing partner to join our program. Playing with different people is part of learning the game. Our practices will give you plenty of experience pairing up with someone you may not know well, and if you don’t have a partner come tournament time we can offer suggestions to help you.
Other Beach Programs
We have several coaches that are able to do lessons, We will start having days and times available to schedule but in the meantime, if you are interested in doing a lesson please feel free to shoot us an email.
