AJV Sand is now year round! Our main 12 week program is still offered in the summer, but we are happy to offer an 10 week program in Fall, an 8 week program in Winter and two 5 week club training progrm in the Spring . Athletes can train once to twice a week while competing in a variety of tournaments locally and around Texas. Tryouts/Evaluations occur for the Summer Club Program, but not for Fall, Winter, or Spring. You do not need a partner but can tryout or sign up with one.
Training will be offered both North (ASC Sand Complex) and South (Zilker and Aussies) for Summer to accommodate every athlete. We welcome all male and female athletes, as well as all AJV indoor and non AJV athletes to compete with AJV Sand. Emphasis on individual and team ball control as well as strength and conditioning will be included.
Training will be led by AVP and FIVB beach professional Ashley Ivy. Ashley began her career at Stanford University where she won a NCAA national championship. After much success at the indoor level she transitioned to the beach to find herself competing on the USA Beach National Team. We are excited for her to be running the sand program at Austin Juniors as sand continues to grow as a NCAA scholarship sport.
