12U BVCA Team

AJV Sand trains year-round! We are excited to offer a West Austin practice location at the 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 program runs in the summer, and we are now offering an extended 4 months of training in the fall and spring. 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 program; players are evaluated and divided before each practice session. You do not need a partner but can sign-up with one.  Tournament competition is separate from the club training program; registration and partnerships are at the discretion of the athletes.

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 are 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.
