TRAINING PROGRAMS

Our main club season is a 12 week summer training program, running May 10th through July 28th. Training is offered at 2 locations; Cedar Park (ASC Sand Complex) and West Austin (WAYA) to accommodate athletes around Central Texas. A tryout is NOT REQUIRED for the 2022 season; athletes are evaluated at their first practice. Every athlete must register online to be accepted into the Summer Sand Club program. The summer program is strictly training, and tournament competition is not included. Practice sessions consist of 90 minutes of skill's training and 30 minutes of SAQ conditioning. We are excited to launch a new application through MINDBODY for athletes to sign-up for their practice dates, track attendance, and modify their training schedule.
