Elite Beach Club
Updated for 2019
Beach is a NCAA scholarship sport and now has enough schools competing to sanction an official NCAA Division I National Championship. We are excited to begin our second annual beach club.
Last summer we took 6 teams to compete at USA Beach Nationals in Siesta Key, FL. We had three teams finish in the Top 10. This summer we are going to take that to the next level! No matter what level of experience, skill, or competition level-- OUR BEACH CLUB WILL HELP YOU BECOME A BETTER VOLLEYBALL PLAYER!
Playing beach volleyball is a great way to improve your volleyball skills by learning how to read, increase your defensive range, and learn to attack. The beach club will compete in two local tournaments. Each doubles team will have the option to compete in a beach qualifier to earn a bid to Beach Nationals.
Players should sign up individually. We would encourage players to find their own beach partner. Individuals that sign-up without a partner will be assigned a partner for training and competing. We always reserve the right to re-assign beach partners as needed based on competition, social, and growth
Beach club fees include tournaments, court rental, and uniform. All players will recieve an Elite Beach Tank for competition. Players will also have the option to choose additional Elite Beach
apparel for competition.
See the Practice Schedule below for information about practices.
We understand that many families may have vacation plans and high school players may have conflicts. We would love to see all players at each practice but understand some players may have other committments.
Teams will compete in two local tournaments. Options include the Great Plains National Beach Qualifier, the Nebraska Regional Beach Qualifier, Spike Beach Bash, or the Nebraska Beach Championships. Teams will also have the option of competing in the USA Beach Qualifier in Kansas City, MO or the Hawkeye Beach Qualifier in Des Moines, IA. Other local tournaments and qualifier events are available for players to compete in, but are not included in the club price.
We practice at The Mark in Elkhorn, NE.
Beach Club Director: Andrew Wehrli
We will start practices June 3, 2019. All May play opportunities are pre-season. All players welcome to participate. These opportunities are intended to help players prepare for the June 1 & 2 Beach Qualifier. Please contact Andrew for more information at email@example.com.
