It is a requirement to bring a ball(any brand/style) to each practice. We do provide balls, but being that we want to be playing and not just collecting balls the entire session, we are requiring each athlete to bring one as well. We are also providing an opportunity to purchase an official USAV Molten Beach Volleyball for $35 (option to add onto registration). It is tough to get better without a volleyball at home.
These sessions will be run by some of the most experienced beach coaches in NJ.

Being that this is an outdoor program and weather is a factor, please take that into consideration. We have pre-scheduled a rain-out session for August 11th for girls, and August 25th for boys, but also cannot 100% control the weather or the schedules of all our busy participants.
Rain is OK, Thunderstorms would require us to leave the beach for 30 minutes. We would use our email and facebook page to let everyone know of any weather issues.
What is the Summer Beach Volleyball Clinc?
This program was created to give athletes an opportunity to play more volleyball during the summer. Beach is great for various reasons:
- controlling the ball within the elements of sun/wind/and even sometimes rain
- smaller sided games: playing with less athletes per side (2 v 2 for our most advanced, beginners and those still learning may play 4 v 4 or 3 v 3) forces every athlete to do more
- opportunity to play/learn the sport we love on one of NJ's nicest beaches
- opportunity to work with some of the top beach coaches in NJ
This program best serves all athletes. The clinic is open to any and all athletes (Boys and Girls ages 10-18). We will do our best to accommodate athletes into groups with others of similar skills. This becomes easier with more athletes.
Please note that while we have 12+ courts to use, we do have a limit for the # of athletes we can fit in the program. Slots go to those in the order which they fully registered.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at ShoreVolleyballAcademy@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.
