Volleyball Alberta's focus for 16U and 18U beach volleyball athletes is to provide an opportunity to train in a challenging, developmental environment and receive education on what it takes to prepare, train and perform at a high level. For this group, there is an emphasis on understanding the game of beach volleyball and to stabilize and refine those specific skills and tactics.   

Athletes selected will have the opportunity to be coached by some of Alberta's top beach volleyball coaches in a competitive high performance training environment.  Each age class will have a head coach who will provide coaching and support in training as well as at provincials and nationals.  In 2023 13 teams (26 athletes) will be selected to the program in the 16U and 18U age classes.
