USAV Beach Development Camps are three-day grassroots camps for boys and girls ages 12-18 and are designed to teach all levels of beach volleyball athletes.

The camps will be led by USAV Beach Department staff and select athletes and coaches from the AVP and FIVB tours.

With an 8:1 camper-to coach-ratio, emphasis will be placed on individual and small group instruction including skill development, technique, beach strategy, combating the elements, fun, and competition.

The final day will include a half day tournament with prizes awarded.  Each camper will receive a written evaluation and will be added to the USAV Beach athlete pipeline database.
