The Beach Volleyball Development Program programs will run once a week (Tuesday) for five weeks starting in June ending in the beginning of July, and a six-week program starting in the middle of July and ending in August.
The Beginner Level (Tripleball) beach program will run once a week (Wednesday) for four weeks with two sessions. The first session will start in June and the second will start in July.
These programs are designed for participants who are looking to develop and refine their beach volleyball skill sets while learning to be more effective on the sand. Participants will learn proper techniques and tactics for forearm passing, setting, serving, and attacking through progressions and modified games. This program will be divided with 45 minutes of skill development followed by 45 minutes of modified game play. It is encouraged that athletes go into both the development and league programs as the league is the ideal place to practice their new skills from Tuesday’s practice in a fun game-play structured environment on Thursday.
General Weather information:
The sessions will run in all weather conditions unless there is lightning or severe rain making it unsafe to play. Always show up to games even if it is raining as the weather can change very quickly. Assume all games are a go unless otherwise stated through email or on the VA website.
You can check if a league night will be cancelled by looking on the Volleyball Alberta Website (at the top of this page).
We will be following the 30/20 Rule during game play which was set out by the Canada Safety Council.
If thunder is heard within 30 seconds of seeing lightning, games will be postponed. All participants must leave the playing area and seek shelter in a building or an automobile. Never stand under trees, in an open field, or under an umbrella. Games will resume 20 minutes after the thunder and lightning have moved away. If thunder and lightning are still present 20 minutes after, the game will be cancelled and the score counts as it was when the game was stopped. Halfway point of the game must be reached (11 points by one team) for the game to count towards the league standing.
