From the Moxiejuniors.com website:

Boys U12 to U15 Friday 5:30 to 7:30 pm starting May 23rd

 

The end goal of our beach volleyball program is to get junior players paired up and competing in the local junior tournaments through the various tournament hosts in the Seattle area.

 

We will be indoors about 80% of the time. Athletes will be introduced to playing outdoors and learning to work with the elements (sun, wind, and rain) on weekends and/or select weeknights in addition to regularly scheduled practices.

    

New Summer Camp/ Club Team Information

Nate Ngo, one of the assistant volleyball coaches at the University of Portland has announced in an effort to promote the sport of volleyball is extending an invitation to the boys playing volleyball on any team to join the Pilots at their summer camps. The only restriction (for this year) is they will not open up the overnight option for their advanced camp to boys. Boys are welcome to be a commuter camper for the Overnight Advanced Camp, but just not as an over-nighter. They will look to open this to boys in the future.

You can find more information as well as registration for the camps at www.portlandpilots.com/camps and clicking on “Volleyball Camps”. or http://www.portlandpilots.com/sports/2014/4/7/VB_0407142122.aspx

UP also has a team camp option on July 18-20 and that is also open to boys teams if they wish to train as a team. You can contact the assitant coach directly at ngo@up.edu.
UP also has hosted free clinics on campus in the past and that is something they want to continue to do and will open that to boys as well. The Pilots will continue to look for dates, generally on the weekends, to host these clinics. Portland will post the information mainly through their social media accounts which are: http://www.facebook.com/PilotsVolleyball

Thunder Beach
The sport of sand volleyball is growing with the NCAA looking to add it as a collegiate sport. Last year was our first year training on the sand with Thunder Beach and we are happy to say it was a huge success! Those girls that came out and trained came back to the club season ready to compete. Sand volleyball really helps your all around game and what better way to spend your summer, than in the sand!

Here are just a few things to note about Thunder Beach

1. We are a registered Puget Sound Beach Training Program so our coaches have to maintain certain certifications, plus being under the umbrella of USAV helps to keep us up-to-date with tournaments and other events.

2. Thunder Beach is run by Jen Baklenko. Jen played professionally on the beach on the following tours;WPVA, 4 person BL tour, MPVA . She is the Puget Sound High Performance Head Coach and was the volunteer Assistant for University of Washington Sand Volleyball team in their inaugural season. She is USAV Beach Impact and CAP certified. In other words, Thunder’s coaching experience is unparalleled in the region!

3. This is our SECOND year of Thunder Beach. We have grown and changed the program to best instruct and supply the beach player with the skills she/he needs to stay active, involved, in shape and still learning and loving the game. We have added one three hour session per week to let the player play while being instructed and coached.

For Summer 2014, Thunder Beach will be practicing on Monday and Thursday evenings starting on June 2nd through August 4th at Sandbox Sports in Georgetown 5955 Airport Way S, Seattle, WA 98108 . Players age U14 and under will practice from 6-7:30pm and players age U15 and older will practice from 7:30-9pm. No practice on 7/3.

On Wednesdays we will be practicing at Golden Gardens (8498 Seaview Pl NW, 98117) from 12:30-3:30pm. This practice starts on June 18th and ends on August 13th. As stated above, Wednesdays will be more competition with coaching during games. This will also allow players to play together and decide on partnering for tournaments. All ages are welcome for the entire three hour session.

We are offering two packages this season. We recognize that vacation schedules and other activities will take precedence from time to time. To best plan and schedule staff and courts, we are asking you to sign up for the entire season. You can choose between 2 times a week or 3 times a week to help defray costs. However, because we are being flexible for the summer, those players that sign up for 3x a week will have priority in signups and those that sign up for 2 x a week might be put on a waitlist. If you are placed on a waitlist, we will contact you very soon to let you know if you are in the session or not . The cost for Thunder Beach 3x a week for the entire summer is $725. The cost for 2x’s a week is $550. Tournament entries are separate from this as there are 4 different venues to play in, however, our coaching staff will help you select appropriate tournaments and level of play.

Included in this cost is over 50 hours of instruction/beach court time, Thunder tanktop or teeshirt, coaching at tournaments that allow coaching and where a Thunder Beach staff member is in attendance. This is open to both Boys and Girls. Siblings will receive a $25 discount per player. Please make sure to pay at time of checkout otherwise you will be placed on a waitlist. No refunds for sessions not attended.

If you did not play club volleyball this past season, you will need to register with USAV through our region. It is a $15 summer membership.
Let us know if you have any questions at jenb@goitvc.com.
