About Beach

Beach volleyball is one of the best ways of improving a player's overall volleyball skills. It is played with 2 players per team in the sand so it forces you to be a more aggressive and balanced player. Each player obviously gets many more touches than indoor. There is a better player to coach ratio and the ability to work on all skills. An added benefit is that OVR isn't charging an additional membership fee to play for current club players, so the costs of playing are lower than indoor. An additional OVR registration fee does apply to those who are not currently on a club team in our region. A player from an indoor club other than Eastside is eligible to play beach for Eastside since beach volleyball is considered a different sport by OVR. Last year, we had several teams made up of two players from the same high school team who played indoor for different clubs.

here are a limited number of teams we can take due to court time available for practice so please contact Shawn right away if you think you might be interested or if you have any questions about the beach session. More information will be shared as it becomes available.

Tournaments

There are usually around ten tournaments scheduled throughout the summer. You can register for as many or as few as you would like based on your summer schedules. We will gladly help you register, but we cannot register for you.

Pricing does not include:

Tournament Registration & Fees

Reason: Different teams will want to play in different tournaments and be able to schedule around summer vacations, etc. This gives the team the flexibility to play as many tournaments as they want or as their schedule will allow.

Coaching at Tournaments

Reason: While a coach is allowed to attend the tournament as a spectator OVR doesn't allow the coach to coach while a game is being played. Coaches will be at many of the events, but no guarantees as to which ones the coaches will attend. Also, getting a coach to every event became very difficult to manage last year because many of the tournaments put the teams at different locations based on age.
