Elite Training Group

*Must try out for this group - See link below to sign up for try outs

Elite is for age groups U12, U14, U16, and U18.  Players will play in age groups according to their DOB, just like indoor. This is for players that have beach experience and are looking to develop skills at a higher level of competition.  Coaches will decide if a player makes an Elite Squad.  See link below for try out sign ups.

USAV membership must be current.  Players do not have to have a partner to register.  Coaches will make teams for each tournament from the players in each squad.  Partners may vary from tournament to tournament.  This is getting our players ready to play with someone else in college, and to help them learn and grow as a beach player.  You will have an opportunity to sign up for extra tournaments (outside the elite squad schedule) and choose your own partner.  

Elite Membership Details:

  • Club Gear included (T-shirt, Tank Top and Sticker) - Extra gear will be available for purchase but not required  *(T-shirts and tanks are not guaranteed for registrations after 4/25)

  • Opportunities such as playing on a college campus in a college hosted tourney. Playing in a WA state club challenge with other beach clubs. 

  • Small group ratio.  There will be a coach assigned to EACH age group

  • 15 weeks of practices with highly qualified beach coaches

  • Cost $110 every 2 weeks for practices for 15 weeks.  Practices are twice a week for 2 hours each.  **These prices could change if the state does not allow us to have 8 players per coach**

  • Practices will start beginning of April and last through the 1st week of August (with 3 weeks off in July), to allow for travel to various beach nationals/championships IF players desire

  • Priority registration for Kōkua Beach Clinics and Tournaments (that are not already included in the Elite scheduled)

  • Coaching from Kōkua coach during all Elite Squad Scheduled tournaments

  • AVP ($20) and BVNE ($30) memberships required - These are required because we will be competing in these tournaments where the players can earn points in each organization

  • Elite squads will participate in 5-6 tournaments - COVID allowing

    • 2-3 of those tournaments will be local (included in Elite Fees, normally $80 a team)​

    • 2-3 of those tournaments will be travel as allowed (registration for these is not included in fees, typically tournaments are $40-$50 per player)

      • Travel could include places like Chelan, Tri-Cities, Alki Beach in Seattle, CA or AZ.  We will not travel to all these places, these are examples.  We are hoping it will be 2 closer travel tournaments and 1 out of state. These will be figured out as we go because of COVID, but dates will be released ASAP

  • All Players on Elite Squads will split the cost of coach travel for these tournaments.  Players will be billed for this as tournaments happen.  Players will be responsible for their own travel costs.

 

We know the idea of Elite Beach Squads is new to our area.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

U13/14 - 1 player
