Description: This program is new for the 2019-2020 season. This training group is designed to allow young athletes from around the state to train in a highly competitive environment throughout the year-round beach season. Many of these athletes commute over 2 hours to train together! This group will travel with the top coaches in the state and compete against the nation's best. It is possible for players in this program to also play on indoor club teams as well as train on weekdays with other beach clubs in different parts of the state.
Who is eligible: We will send out invites in Mid-July to early November to players who qualify for this training group. Some of our younger full-time players will train with this group whenever possible. Players older than the U16 age group will not be invited to join this part-time group.

Cost: $2500 - Does not include tournament entry fees or travel to tournaments. Players will receive all recruiting, tournament coaching, and Sinjin apparel/player package with their dues.
Pairings: NC 16's players will be able to choose from partners from all over the east coast to pair with for tournaments. We work intimately with the small number of families in this program to ensure that the players always have a partner that allows the potential to end up on the podium. Ultimately, it is each player's choice who she chooses to play with in tournaments, but we ask that everyone be considerate of the players that they train with one a regular basis.
Player package: NC 16's players will receive the entirety of Sinjin Beach's player package from Lululemon, Kauai Bikini, and Mizuno. When athletes compete in tournaments, they are to represent Sinjin Beach, regardless of other clubs that they may also train with on a part-time basis.
