Our group welcomes all levels from beginners to competitive players. We have different skill levels to suit everyone !
Recreational 6's
Intermediate 5's

Mid Intermediate 4's

High Intermediate 4's
Advanced 3's

Please see the message board for level decriptions and Group Guidelines and Rules in Discussions/Message Boards/Group Must Reads

We play up to 5 levels and up to 10 nets with the occassional beach BBQ.
Leagues too expensive, not "good enough" for other groups ? Want to play a Competitive level with lots of other like minded people or want to play just for fun ? Want to play at the beach .. just you and 50-100 friends ? Regardless of your skill level, come out and join us. We have a perfect level for you !!
The small fee is used to purchase new equipment and fund future events. Fees are $4-5 per outdoor event.

Equipment purchased to date and fees paid:

10 sets of nets and lines

6 full portable systems

over 40 volleyballs (25 of which have been worn out)

7 sun canopies (4 of which have been broken by members)

10 years of Meetup fees

Total investment to date - over $5,000

We are now capable of setting up 10 full courts without relying on people to bring their own nets (which is a hit or miss proposition). We have to start early in the morning to make sure we get enough courts. We can also set up 6 courts on days where the beach courts are taken over by tournaments.
Members are welcome to drop by later in the afternoon if they have not signed up and if there is space (others having left early) then you are welcome to join in.
We will play Saturdays or Sundays (usually alternating) and occassional weeknights too

Please note -
Please read our Group Rules and Guidelines before signing up for any volleyball events - (in Discussion/message board)
Please only sign up if you plan on attending. Repeat offenders will be removed from the group. 2 strikes and you are out. Strikes only for team events and events with reservations.

Our events have had up to 130 members attend. This means things have to be well organized and members are expected to follow the rules and guidelines or the event will turn into chaos. If you follow our rules and guidelines, you will have a lot of fun meeting new people and having fun in the sun.

Beach rules (for Int 4's, Advanced and Competitive levels only) - see the discussion boards
For indoor beach bookings, any no shows or late bail outs will be immediately removed from the group since we have to pay for court rental and a no show makes everyone else pay more to play. Please do not RSVP unless you intend on coming out.

I have split off and created a new separate Snowboarding group so those of you who are only interested in Snowboarding can join there for snowboarding specific trips for next season
