AJV Sand trains year round and we are excited to offer south practices during the summer, fall, and spring seasons! Our main 13 week program runs in the summer, we offer a 10 week program in the fall, a 6 week program in the winter, and a 10 week club training program in the spring. Athletes can train once or twice a week (Spring- four and Summer-6 times 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 Programs. You do not need a partner, but can tryout or sign up with one.

Training will be offered North in Cedar Park (ASC Sand Complex), in Buda (CTX Fieldhouse), and South (Aussies Beach Grill) for summer, fall, and spring 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.
