Coronado Sponsored Saturday Beach Volleyball (9 to noon)

***  This event is sponsored by the City of Coronado. 

***  There are special registration requirements for attending.

 

Come out and play!! Enjoy the beach; get some sand between your toes (and maybe in your ears if you like to dive.)

This group is social volleyball. We all like to play and we like games to be reasonably competitive (please, no complete beginners) but we're not serious hardcore (check out the 2s and 3s beach volleyball group if that sounds like you).

Registration:  Every player must sign Coronado's Recreation Activity Waiver form before being allowed to play for the first time.  We will have waivers there, or you can print one to fill out and bring with you if you like.

A $5.00 fee that covers the remainder of 2014 must be paid at the Coronado Community Center (1845 Strand Way, Coronado, CA 92118, (619)[masked]); the volleyball organizers will not be able to collect any money at the volleyball courts.  The money will be used to help defray the purchase and maintenance costs of the equipment.  This fee takes the place of Fun Bucks.

On Saturday, Coronado's Community Center will accept payments from 10:00a-5:30p.  Or, you can call and use a credit card once an account has been created with your waiver form.

Directions:  From the Hotel Del, turn west and following along the beach (R.H. Dana Pl.) Take Ocean Blvd. all the way until it ends before hitting the beach. If you find yourself looking at permanent net posts or you do not see any airplane runway lights sticking up out of the sand, then you haven’t gone quite far enough. You’ll find us a little further down, across the street from Sunset Park. 

If you arrive at 9am and you don’t see anyone, be sure to look past the sand berms, because if we’re on the ground digging the anchor holes for the nets, you won’t be able to see us.

The Meetup is from 9am – 12pm, but if you’re running a bit late, it’s OK. You’ll be teamed up to play in the very next game. Also, we often continue playing into the afternoon, until everyone gets too tired or too hungry to continue.

If it's hot out, consider bringing sand socks (or just regular socks). If it's raining, the game is likely to be canceled.  Otherwise, just bring yourself. Oh yeah, and sunscreen & water too.

    Thank you to everyone. Today was a big success. There were no major problems. I think things are pretty much back to normal now. Thank goodness.

    I have all of the nets (6 of them) to be set up tomorrow (5/3/14) in Coronado. We'll need all of the nets to be set up. I'm planning on getting there early tomorrow, hopefully 8:30 a.m. at the latest, and even earlier if I can make it earlier, so I can start setting up the nets. If anyone can arrive early to help set up, it would be appreciated. -Brian

    Coronado Recreation Center won’t start collecting equipment fees until after 10a on Saturdays and they also need your signed waiver before you can pay. So, if you were planning on it, skip the “paying at 8:30a” plan. I’ll have more info for you on Saturday.

    I’m going to side with Andy that it would be for the best that he no longer associates with San Diego (Mostly) Beach Volleyball Meetup Group and that he affiliates with an alternate group of his choosing. It is agreed.

    "I have to ask are the organizers getting paid by the city in some shape or form?" writes Andrew. That's outrageous. I thank the organizers for dealing with the hassles of setting up this deal in Coronado, not to mention all the effort they have put in in the past, while most of the rest of us have just shown up and had fun.

      This sets a bad precedent. Now any city could do what Coronado did. Any group can go to Coronado and play volleyball, but our group is special so we have to pay 5.00 to play on the beach, where Coronado wants us to play, with Coronado equipment. Now you have to play by Coronado's rules. Took the organizers 2 months to get this figured out. Kinda long time if you ask me, but then again it is a government run operation now. They should of just moved it or fought it. But anyways have fun guys.

    Seriously? 1300 (total members)*5=6500 per year, or for this instance 39*5=195. That's a nice tip every Saturday for using a public beach.

    So now I have to get up at 9am on a Saturday, fill out a form, drive it some where out of my way, park the car on Coronado (not easy), wait in line, pay the five dollars then drive to volleyball, park again, show proof I did pay my 5 dolllars. Any problems I can't play volleyball. What a hassle. I'm sorry I can't pay this. It's a rip off. It's really not the five dollars that bothers me, its the fact that I know I'm being ripped off that bothers me and its outrageous! I have to ask are the organizers getting paid by the city in some shape or form?

    Just look at Coronado. They don't need this money. We've been playing since at least Jan 2012. Took them long enough to come bother us. Now this group isn't free and it requires a 5.00 membership fee. hell no! I'll play Sunday's with the volleyballers. Thanks.

      The $5 is for the whole year. It's a lot less then the $1/week we normally donate. The money doesn't go to Coronado. They just have a rule that says they have to be the one who collect it (see above).

      There's a difference between being forced to pay and donating. Donating you can give as much as you want when you want to give it. Being forced to pay is now you need to pay it. Would you be thrilled at the idea during Christmas time that a city ordinance made everyone pay 5 dollars to salvation army? Or would you rather just drop a 20 in the Salvation Army bucket when you walked out of the store? The group has been known to throw BBQ's on the beach. Say one day everyone forgot to bring charcoal. That money could of came out of the Fun Buck account. Now someone actually has to pay for it. Now we are forced to play with the equipment approved by city

    A link to Coronado's waiver has been added to the website. You can print one out if you like, or you can sign one when you get there.

    Coronado's Community Center opens up at 8:30a. You can either go and pay the equipment fee on your way there or wait till after you're done for the day and pay before you leave the island.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
