Have you checked to see if you can train for beach volleyball year-round in your area? More and more clubs and coaches are offering year-round beach volleyball juniors training options. But one of the great things about beach volleyball is that you do not need a coach or club to compete. Check for tournaments that you can get to all year long. You can be #BeachFirst rather than playing beach volleyball only when the indoor season is not in swing. If your main focus is beach, training in the indoor season when other players are focused on indoor can give you a big head start. If you are in a part of the country where the weather permits winter play, there are probably tournament opportunities that you and a partner can find. The Florida based Dig the Beach Fall Series is one great example of an “off-season” tournament series. Soon enough, expect to find indoor beach courts in cold climate areas of the country. The beach volleyball wave is too big not be provide opportunities to be #BeachFirst!
