AJV Sand trains year round! We are excited to offer a West Austin practice location at the new West Austin Youth Association (WAYA) Sand Courts, as well as our main location in Cedar Park at the Austin Sports Center Sand Complex. Our main 12 week program runs in the summer, and we are now offering an extended 12 week program in the fall and spring seasons. Athletes can train once, twice, or three times a week (up to 6 times a week during the summer) while competing in a variety of tournaments locally and around Texas. A tryout/evaluation is not required for the club training programs; players are separated before each practice session. You do not need a partner, but can sign-up with one.
Training is offered in Cedar Park (ASC Sand Complex) and in West Austin (WAYA sand courts) during the summer, fall, and spring seasons 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 is 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.
