Team Alberta Beach

Program Goals:
  • To produce excellence among the top age class athletes in the province of Alberta.
  • To develop the athlete’s technical, tactical, physical and psychological skills by exposing selected athletes to enriched levels of training and competition.
  • To provide opportunities for personal and leadership development.
  • Success at the Provincial Championships, Western Canada Summer Games, Canada Summer Games, National Championships; as well as the long-term preparation of athletes for participation and success at National Team levels.

The Provincial Team Program will also assist in the development of competitive beach volleyball in Alberta by working in conjunction with players, coaches and volunteers associated with Alberta’s other volleyball delivery programs.

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 and assistant coach who will provide coaching and support in training as well as at provincials and nationals.
