Description: This program demands a high level of commitment and involves travel to beach tournaments on the east coast. This group practices 3-4 times a week - all practices are mandatory. Our goal is to prepare our National Team members to be recruited to play beach at the collegiate level. We will work with our National Team members on improving their physicality, skills, and improving their beach volleyball IQ. This program includes a workout program and film sessions to improve understanding of the beach game.
Recruiting: Players on our National Team will receive the entirety of recruiting services from Sinjin Beach. You can learn more about our recruiting here. To see a list of our committed athletes, click here.
Tournaments: National Team members have a rigorous tournament schedule. National Team members are required to make their tournament commitments for the season before the end of January, but you are not required to attend the tournaments on our schedule. The National Team will have a list of mandatory tournaments and are allowed to miss only one of these events. Some of these tournaments will include collegiate showcases, adult tournaments, and a trip to California in July of 2020. Coaches will accompany the team to these tournaments. Tournament coaching fees are accounted for in team dues.
Partners: For tournaments, National Team partners will be chosen by Sinjin Beach coaching staff. Pairing requests are eligible at the beginning of the season before tournament pairings are completed for the year. We will solidify pairings for the entirety of the season by the end of February. There will be circumstances where we allow National Team members to play tournaments with players outside of our club if we feel it is best for the individual growth of that player.
Player package: National Team members will receive an extensive player package included in their dues.
