COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (June 28, 2019) – The Florida Region of USA Volleyball is holding a beach ParaVolleyball summer training camp July 12-14 at Hickory Point Beach in Tavares, Florida.

USA Volleyball beach cadre Jon Aharoni and Dan Mickle will lead the three-day camp that consists of on-sand training sessions, classroom-based instruction and tournament play. The camp is open to any athlete interested in learning the adaptive sport of beach volleyball. All ages, genders and abilities are invited to attend.

Beach ParaVolley is standing beach volleyball played with three-member teams. In normal competition, beach ParaVolley allows for a maximum of one Classification A athlete (most physically able). Otherwise, Beach ParaVolley largely follows the standard FIVB Beach Volleyball rules. While Beach ParaVolley is a three-person discipline with players having a classifiable disability set by World ParaVolley, this three-day training camp welcomes able-body athletes to attend as well.

World ParaVolley (WPV), the international federation for Paralympic volleyball, is working with the International Paralympic Committee to add Beach ParaVolley to the Paralympic Games by the 2028 Los Angeles Paralympics.

The camp cost per person is $100 for the camp instruction only or $250 for the instruction plus lodging.
