16th Annual Iowa Region Beach General Skills Clinic

Join us for our 16th Annual Iowa Region Junior Beach Clinic!  Pick your partner and register (individually) to come (as a team) learn the techniques and strategies of the beach volleyball 2v2 game in this evening clinic.  And, if desired, stay in DSM and register for the Iowa Open on Saturday where you can put those skills to use on the court!

New format NEW clinicians!  What a great way to kick off the summer!

NOTE:  New Beach High-Performance (Iowa Beach HP) option
This summer, in lieu of the "Advanced Sessions option" we are offering a Beach HP tryout option which will run concurrently to this general beach skills clinic. The HP option is for our advanced skill beach athletes. If interested, please review information on our Beach HP page and register for that division/option by following THIS LINK.   Questions?  Just ask your beach coach or reach out to the beach director - michelle@iavbreg.org.

*NOTE: Beach partners do NOT have to be from the same club team or school, and you don't have to play indoor club at all to play in our summer events. If you do not yet have a USAV membership, cheap summer memberships are available online at www.iavbreg.org.
