NW Beach Volleyball hosts its programs and tournaments at Bottega Fitness Park (now Bottega Beach Volleyball Park).
Indoors, we operate one of the largest junior volleyball clubs in the region; but we have been running beach programming for junior players for years. Our beach programs are open to players (boys and girls) from any club in all age groups.
Beach volleyball is a fast growing sport, and Bottega is the destination to learn, improve, and train for beach volleyball in the Northend.
We have informed our members that in following with the USA Volleyball cancelling all event sanctions., to include practices, we will be cancelling our Bottega practices as well. Through March 31
NW Juniors Club Members,
With the limited amount of space available indoors and with schools closing, we want to be able to offer our athletes the opportunity to stay active and continue to play volleyball. We will make Bottega Beach available to our club members during the day as long as the weather cooperates. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS FREE AND FOR NW JUNIORS CLUB PLAYERS ONLY!
We have explored the parameters of the HO Order #20-059 and offering these opportunities falls within the guidelines for groups of 250 or less. We will continue to sanitize and make sure that the environment remains viable.
We will have a "work party" on Saturday (March 14) from about 10 AM -2 PM to prepare the facility for play (we originally were planning on March 21).
Groups of teams will have open access to the Beach Facility beginning Monday, March 16. This is player-led OPEN PLAY, so whoever shows up can play doubles, fours, it doesn't matter. We are not currently planning on having coaching/instruction, though if coaches do attend, then that is an option. It will continue as long as the weather cooperates. Weather in the vicinity of Bottega is supposed to be in the mid-high 50's next week. Please check the online calendar for availability beyond March 19.
Below is a schedule with a list of teams and the window of time they will have access to Bottega.
BOTTEGA BEACH VOLLEYBALL PARK (just 5 min north of Woodinville)
8305 168th St. SE, Snohomish WA 98296
Northwest Volleyball offers beach volleyballs program for juniors of all ages. Our programs are open to both girls and boys. Both are encouraged to join and jump into the fun sport of beach volleyball. All beach coaches are Beach IMPACT certified and will be under the guidance of the Beach Director.
Our 2017 acquisition of Bottega Beach in Snohomish (just 5 minutes north of Woodinville), allows the club to use up to 6 courts at a time, and to use the courts throughout the day and evenings, 7 days a week. This means that the only limiting factor for training opportunities is the energy and drive of the participants.
With Beach Volleyball booming in the club, high school, and collegiate ranks, now is a great time to jump in to the game and learn a lifelong sport. The scholarships for young women are getting more numerous, and the opportunities for growth and travel have exploded across the nation. But the training isn't just for those looking to earn scholarships; just like our indoor club, we feel that the opportunities should be available for athletes of all ages and levels. Every interested athlete is encouraged to tryout and enroll, and the program will be molded to fit the goals and abilities of the athletes that participate.
Our Beach Volleyball Tryouts are not solely based on a single age, but based upon ability level and growth potential. With 6 courts and unlimited possibilities, the program and training athlete cap has not yet been set, but will be posted here when defined. If there is a large amount of interest, we will do our best to accommodate numbers and add training opportunities if possible.
We hope that you will see the wonderful opportunities opening up for Beach Volleyball in the Northwest and that you'll come out to Bottega Beach Volleyball Park to play, train, and build something special with us!

We offer several beach programs for players of all skill levels.
We still run our Junior Grand Prix Series. We kept this a USA Volleyball sanctioned series so the players that play indoors do not have to purchase a new or exclusive membership to participate. We run this series at Bottega Beach and at Alki Beach.
We do run a Junior Beach Club-- AVP Academy Northwest -- we are one of 6 AVP Academies on the West Coast and we are honored to have the backing of the AVP for our programs. We offer AVP related programming including AVP Academy, AVP First, and AVP Next events. Currently our beach club has about 40% players from NW Juniors and 60% from other clubs. We encourage any player - even if you didn't play club volleyball - to participate in our Beach Club/AVP Academy.
We have Beach Camps. These are day camps and give players a lot of opportunities to improve.
In addition we offer Spring Beach Training and Private Group Lessons.
