Q: HOW MANY PEOPLE PLAY BEACH?
Beach is 2 vs 2.
Q: ARE THE RULES THE SAME AS INDOOR?
No. They are very different. Your kids will be explained the difference during practices.
Q: DO YOU HAVE TO PLAY IN EVERY TOURNAMENT?
No. All events are individual tournaments. You can sign up for as many/few tournaments as you want.
Q: WHEN ARE THE TOURNAMENTS?
Tournaments will be posted on our site once they are made available.
Q: ARE THERE OFFICIALS FOR THE TOURNAMENTS?
No. Sand volleyball is self-officiated. The players work to agree with their opponents on calls if an agreement can’t be made, they just replay the point.
Q: CAN PARENTS COACH OR OFFICIATE?
No. Parents cannot be near the courts. The players learn to officiate and make decisions with their opponents.
Q: WILL MY CHILD HAVE TO WEAR AN ADVERSITY JERSEY DURING TOURNAMENTS?
Yes. All information and order forms will be available at our parent meeting.
Q: WILL MY ATHLETE BE COACHED DURING ANY MATCH?
No. Beach rules prohibit any coaching during a match or having a coach court side. Coaches can help players before a match, but can not discuss ANYTHING once the match has started.
