2023 Girls Sand Kickoff:

MVVC Sand Volleyball will begin the season with our Kickoff(s) on May 20th-21st.  The purpose of attending the Kickoff is to be seen by the MVVC Sand Coaches so that each player can be accurately placed in the appropriate training group.  Players who attend the Kickoff will receive priority when being added to training groups if the program has limited space due to a large number of registrations.  There will also be a short parent meeting at the beginning of each Kickoff time to answer any questions about the program.  Please email Lake Merchen at with any questions or concerns regarding our MVVC Sand Kickoffs.

MVVC Summer Sand Season:

Our girls beach programs focus on skills development and preparing for competition. The season will run from June 3rd - August 4th (9 weeks). Training groups will consist of approximately 12-16 players and will be further broken down by skill level on two courts. Each practice will have 6 - 8 players and 1-2 coaches per court.


Please check out the California Beach Volleyball Association at for information about their tournament schedule and how to sign up for a tournament.  MVVC will also hold three inner-club tournaments at West Valley College.

When you do sign up for the MVVC’s sand program and you would like to play in a CBVA or our own tournament but do not have a partner, please contact us and we will do the best we can in assisting you to find a partner.


Due to summer plans and travel constraints, we expect players to miss periodically due to summer schedules and vacations. In some cases, it may be possible to make up a practice session with another group.  Please check with your coach for availability.  In addition, the cost of all Summer Sand Programs anticipates that each player will miss up to 2 weeks worth of practice sessions throughout the course of the summer season.

Private Lessons:

If you are interested in private or small group (2-4) lessons, please reach out to Coach Lake for opportunities to sign up.
