2022 beach 
               elite season

 it’s that time of year again, beach volleyball season is almost here. We will be offering a k2 beach elite program starting in april 2022, running through july 2022. this program is for players with beach & indoor club experience and will involve traveling to out of town/state beach tournaments, however, going to tournaments is not required.  the k2 beach elite is for ages 11-18.

Beach volleyball is the single best way to develop CONFIDENCE, overall volleyball skills, and all-around players.  

Benefits include:

  • Builds quick thinking and problem-solving ability

  • Overall fitness is improved through vigorous nature of competition

  • Toughness and grit improve, as well, because of the difficulty of the sport and having to deal with the adverse conditions (sand, sun, wind)

  • Develops more versatile, all-around players because with only two players covering the entire court, all skills must be utilized

  • The number of touches/reps, in the average beach practice, is much more than in a typical indoor practice

  • Increases college opportunities, as beach volleyball is the fastest growing sport in NCAA history

The program will be run by our elite sand director Cory Felts, our current k2 boys director/18s coach and former professional sand competitor.  cory has played and/or coached indoor and sand volleyball for 30+ years.  beach training will focus on your personal development, confidence, strength and agility; all of which you can take back indoors to improve your all-around game.  

tournaments are not mandatory and touranment fees are not included in your beach fees.  you are required to register your 2 person team for the tournament you will be attending.  links for potential tournaments will be shared several weeks before the tournaments via facebook on our k2 beach elite page so you can decide if you will be traveling with your partner.  slots for these tournaments are on a first come first serve basis.  as there are tournaments every weekend somewhere, you are encouraged to participate and travel as much as you want.  links for sand clubs and their tournaments are below.  as a reminder you are paying for sand volleyball training, which is why the fees for the tournaments are not included. 

partners:

in an effort to always provide the highest level of training and to make sure that the challenge level is always appropriate to the level of player experience we will be having separate training times, one for intermediate/beginning players and another for an elite “Flygirls” beach team. 

tryouts/partner placement for those players will happen a few weeks after we get in the sand and will be discussed in more detail at the parent meeting.  no partner is required if you are joining for training only.

beach gear: we will be using bumblee for adidas beach gear this year! a link to purchase gear for you and your players will be sent in a few weeks.  parents are encourage to buy whatever items they want for yourselves as well.  coach cory does require that you play in k2 gear, so please keep that in mind while ordering.   

please join both of our facebook pages as we communicate through this media for most everything.

It’s easier to take your outdoor skills in to the gym than to bring your indoor skills outside. Simple reason. Beach volleyball forces you to have all the skills. That’s why I think it’s a good idea for indoor players to play on the beach. Learning those skills can only help improve a player’s indoor performance. All my years playing on the beach as a kid certainly helped my indoor game. If nothing else, a player’s quickness and jump will be increased by playing on soft sand.” -3-time Olympic Gold Medalist & current USA Olympic Team Head Coach -Karch Kiraly
