2020 Beach Volleyball
Xceleration welcomes you to our 2020 Beach Volleyball Program. We hope that you can join us this year for an exciting way to spend your summer on the beach, as well as continue your off-season volleyball conditioning in a fun way.
For our beach volleyball season, no tryouts are required! Practices will begin on Monday, June 8, and runs for approximately 8 weeks through July 30.
This program will focus on fundamental training and concentrate on individual skills. We will teach each and every athlete the fundamentals of passing, serving (overhand and introduce jump serving), and hitting.

June 8 – July 29: Mondays/Wednesdays
