Beach Volleyball

Beach volleyball is one of the best ways of improving a player's overall volleyball skills. It is played in the sand, so it forces you to be a more aggressive and balanced player.

About our Beach league

Beach volleyball is played with only two players per team, so each player gets many more touches than in indoor volleyball. There is also a better player-to-coach ratio and the ability to work on all skills. An added benefit is that OVR doesn’t charge an additional membership fee for current club players, so the cost 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.

There are a limited number of teams we can take due to court time available for practice, so please contact Ethan right away if you think you might be interested or if you have any questions about the beach session.

Tournaments

There are usually around 10 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.

Practices

Beach begins in May and goes through August. We have two 6-week sessions. Dates for our 2019 sessions will be announced soon. Each player registers for their own tournaments based on their personal schedule.

Practices are held at the following two locations:

  • Eastside Athletics  •  11435 Lithopolis Rd., Lithopolis

  • The Homestead  •  2568 Carroll Eastern Rd NE, Pleasantville

Pricing

We have two 6-week sessions.

$170 per session includes the instructor and two practices each week.

Players register for their own tournaments based on their personal schedules.

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 is very difficult to manage because many of the tournaments put the teams at different locations based on age.
