Beach Volleyball Club Season
Women's Beach Volleyball is one of the most exciting and fastest growing sports in the NCAA. NCAA officially recognized beach volleyball as a collegiate sport in 2010. As of the 2018-19 school year, 126 colleges nationwide now have beach volleyball programs. This is truly an exciting time to be a young female volleyball athlete. With the rapid growth of beach programs in colleges, there are now more opportunities for volleyball athletes to be recruited and earn athletic scholarships, especially if they can play both indoor and beach volleyball. View a list of college beach programs and scholarship opportunities here.
With this in mind, ST7 Volleyball is announcing ST7 Beach Volleyball Club Season this summer! Our Beach Volleyball Club Season is for the athlete who wants to play beach volleyball competitively. These athletes will train to compete and attend beach showcase events with the goal of being recruited. Beach/Sand Volleyball has proven to advance a volleyball player’s all around skills and volleyball IQ for not only beach but indoor volleyball, as well. ST7 Beach Volleyball Training will focus on both the skills and the strategy necessary to be highly successful at the game of beach volleyball. Our training will instruct athletes on the entire game of beach volleyball including volleyball knowledge, rules, and proper beach teamwork. ***You do not have to be a current member of ST7 Volleyball's Indoor Club to be part of the ST7 Beach Volleyball Club Season.
