Congratulations to Savannah Siegrist - she is transferring to University of Oregon to play NCAA Beach Volleyball (PAC-12)!!
OUR BEACH VOLLEYBALL PROGRAM IS IN NEED OF SAND COURTS. PLEASE CONTACT INFO@SOUTHRIVERVOLLEYBALL.COM IF YOU KNOW OF OR HAVE ACCESS TO A SAND COURT THAT IS AVAILABLE FOR OUR USE.
Our season begins mid-April and runs through the end of July.
We practice in rain and wind because a tourney would be played in those conditions. If lightning is visible, practice needs to be suspended/postponed for 12 minutes from the last visible strike. Thunder is a good cue that lightning strikes are in the area but lightning strikes may be present without thunder. Unfortunately players will have to come to the court to make the determination. If the coach determines that practice is canceled, he will provide as much notice as possible.
We do not practice in sub-50 degree temperatures.
SRVC groups players into pools based on age and skill level. Each pool has up to 10 players. All SRVC beach players practice with their pool. After the first couple weeks of practice, your coach helps with suitable partnerships for tournaments. Players may team with a different partner for each tournament and is actually highly encouraged. You may partner with a player from any pool or even from another club.
The SRVC on-line calendar lists local, regional and national beach/sand tournaments. There are grass tournaments available from various organizations; they are not provided on the SRVC calendar. Teams are responsible to register for the tournaments in which they are interested. Your coach can assist in those decisions.
All SRVC Calendars are maintained under Teams. To see the Beach Team Tournament options calendar, click on Teams tab on the top menu and select Beach Team Tournament List from Choose a Team drop-down menu. From the Team page, select Schedule from the left-hand menu. There is a Schedule view and a Calendar view.
