Summer is approaching and Sunshine's beach camp is now in our 7th year of operation. With beach volleyball getting bigger and bigger and more colleges offering scholarships for "beach", interest in this sport has never been higher.
This year we offer two sections of the camp, both led by Heather Lowe, an AVP star player and top of the line coach. The advanced section Club Beach is for seasoned players who want to hone their sand skills. Heather will directly run Club Beach as well as oversee our normal Beach Camp which will cater to younger players. As always we will try to keep the coach to player ratio to 1 coach for four players. And as usual, "Fun Fridays" will include Mr. Kelly's treats and lots of competition.
The camp starts on the week of June 8 and runs through August 21. We look forward to a great camp and creating a new generation of dedicated sand volleyball players. SEE YOU AT THE BEACH!
