Beach Summer Training Series Program Dates Set

Junior beach volleyball athletes from across the United States will have the opportunity to train like Olympians and Paralympians this summer. The USA Volleyball National Team Development Program is hosting the Beach Summer Training Series, a residential training program at the historic Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center in Chula Vista, California. This program offers athletes a chance to enhance their skills and experience world-class facilities.

The Chance to Train like Olympians and Paralympians

“We’re thrilled to host the Beach National Team Training Series at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center,” says Spencer Jamison, Vice President/Business Development at CVEATC. “USA Volleyball is a fantastic organization, and we look forward to supporting these athletes through our world-class facilities.”

Dates and Training Focus

The training at Chula Vista will take place from July 25 to August 1, 2022. Girls and boys will train separately, with the girls taking the sand from July 25 to 28, and the boys from July 29 to August 1. Athletes will have four days of training, focusing on the NTDP’s five pillars: Craft, Mind, Body, Heart, and Team. The sessions will be held both on the sand and in the classroom.

The Ideal Location for Training and Competition

The former United States Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California, has been transformed into an ideal location for the Beach Summer Training Series. The purpose-built beach volleyball facilities sit adjacent to the strength and conditioning venue. The CVEATC offers onsite athlete housing, excellent dining, and centralized meeting spaces. This setup allows athletes and staff to fully concentrate on high-quality training and competition. Switching to a resident program for the Beach Summer Training Series provides more time for athletes and staff to build relationships, friendships, and a shared sense of Team USA.

Invitation and Scouting Process

Invitations for the Beach Summer Training Series will be sent following the Spring Training Series in May. Athletes will be identified and invited based on recommendations from the NTDP Scouting Network, which includes coaches and experts from across the United States.
