TAKE YOUR GAME to the NEXT LEVEL with
Beach doubles is now an NCAA sport and a great opportunity to cross-train for the indoor game.
Olympic Head Coach and Gold Medalist Karch Kiraly recommends beach for all players. According to Karch, "It's easier to take your outdoor skills into the gym than bring your indoor skills outside. Simple reason. Beach forces you to have all the skills! That's why I think every player should play beach. Learning those skills will help improve a player's indoor performance."
Believe Beach has consistently produced top doubles teams both in the Rocky Mountain Region and nationally. Since our inaugural season in 2013, several of our Believe Beach alumna have received beach scholarships for both NCAA Division 1 and NJCAA schools. In 2018, three Believe Beach teams finished in the top 10 teams in the nation in the 16U, 14U, and 12U age groups at the USAV Junior National Beach Championships. Adding to those achievements, 8 Believe Beach teams have won gold, silver, and bronze medals at the USAV Jr. Regional Open Sand tournament (including boys and girls teams); a gold and silver medal at AAU Beach Qualifiers; and 13 bids to the USAV Jr. National Beach Championships and AAU Beach Nationals. In addition to sand, Believe Beach has been just as successful in grass tournaments, winning 6 championships at the Steamboat Doubles tournament and 5 championships at the King of the Mountain Tournament in Vail. Believe Beach teams have also achieved numerous 1st place finishes in the RMR Beach Series tournaments and Volleyball of the Rockies tournaments as well as winning Princess of the Beach.
The coaching staff at Believe Beach will focus on the technical training aspect of the game so your athlete will gain knowledge and experience in performing the necessary skills and strategies of doubles volleyball. We train in both the sand and grass. We also offer conditioning sessions that will develop the level of fitness required to increase speed, agility, and vertical jump for both the indoor and outdoor game.
Practices will begin in June TBD - dependent on state and county mandates and social distancing. We are also offering a 6 week session "Princess of the Beach" league facilitated by Eden Volleyball on Wednesday nights.
