AVP Academy is the AVP's dedicated youth and collegiate level player development program to help players in all age groups connect to the AVP's mission of "inspiring healthy lifestyles and a lifelong connection to the sport of beach volleyball in youth and their families." The program combines components of beach volleyball training with sports psychology, nutrition, strength and conditioning to provide players with the highest level of training possible.
NW Juniors Beach Club has partnered with AVP Academy
The Northwest Juniors Beach Club is an AVP Academy and open to all athletes! Players do not need to be members of NW Juniors VBC in order to participate in our Beach Club. It is open to all junior players, all ages, boys and girls.
All athletes who register for Tryouts will be admitted to the AVP Academy and will have the opportunity for beach volleyball training. You do not need a partner to signup. Our tryouts serve as an evaluation opportunity so that we can determine the training group assignment for all Beach Club members. We also use our tryouts to select players for our Travel Teams. You can let us know at tryouts whether or not you want to be considered for a travel team.
