Beach Volleyball Training

By Brandon Thewes 01/14/2020, 1:45pm EST

Elite Sports Ohio Volleyball Company is proud to announce a partnership for our athletes to train with and at the Sandbox Training facility.

The sandbox begins its fifth season.  For the 2020 season the Sandbox will have a new affiliation with p1440, the volleyball organization founded and run by Olympic multiple-gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings.  We are also excited to be hosting not only the OVR/USAV bid events in June, but also a p1440 State Championship event the weekend of May 30-31! 
Each SandBox Club member will also be registered as a p1440 member, giving access to tons of online content, a bag of cool swag from p1440, and the opportunity to participate in the pe-tournament clinic on May 29 or May 30, run by the national p1440 staff at the SandBox! 
Aside from our new affiliation, Summer 2020 will see us hold regular "open play" sessions for club members each week, alternating between a weekday morning and a weekday afternoon.  In addition, SandBox club members will have the exclusive opportunity for additional sand training with a certified professional, for only a small add-on cost, twice a week throughout June and July.  Finally, we will expand our calendar of hosted juniors events in 2020, from four events per age group to five events per age group.  As always, SandBox club membership means priority tourney registration and dramatically reduced entry cost for these hosted events.
Monday January 20th, 2020 at 6pm, Club Director Mike Thomas will be at Elite in the café to discuss information about the upcoming opportunities with the distinguished staff at the Sandbox.
