Developmental Tryouts announced

Tryout Dates For Next Developmental Program Session Announced


Sessions one and two have come and gone. More than 100 hours of practice with multiple coaches in the summer Developmental Program session has led to one career finish for the developmental athletes after the next.

For some, that meant making an AVP main draw. For others, that meant making an AVP Sunday. There are but a handful of practices left, one last intrasquad tournament, to prepare the dozens of developmental athletes for the final AVP of the season, in Hawai’i next week.

And then, brace yourselves.

Off-season is coming.

Though at p1440, off-season does not mean sitting on the couch, gorging on junk food. It means an off-season developmental program. A third session of reps, reps, reps, while taking into account that athletes do need to lighten the load after a long season of travel and competition. It means the first few months under new Director of Player and Business Development, Stein Metzger.

It means that while the majority of the beach volleyball world is resting, now is the time to catch up.

Tryouts for the next Developmental Program are open, and you can register here. Players do not have to tryout as a team, but can come as individuals.

When: September 28-29, 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Where: Bolsa Chica State Beach

Cost: $150, which covers both days

The program will run from October 14-March 26, which amounts to 19 weeks of practice, six intrasquad tournaments, personal training at OC Fast Twitch, and media training.
