What we're about

We are local volleyball players who want to play and teach beach volleyball up to tournament rule standards. Our group plays in various spots on the Westside and we have members that have come from distant countries overseas to play with us.

If you are looking for a no rules and anything goes type of volleyball game, this group is likely not for you. If you want to work toward playing like the pros, then you've found a meetup that will help a raw beginner learn to play the proper way and offer intermediates a competitive game.

Beach Volleyball lessons for Saturday (Intermediate) - 9:00 AM

Ocean Front (across the street from Patrick's Roadhouse)

$10.00

Hi members, we have many requests for low cost beach volleyball coaching for beginner to advanced players. We have decided to separate out the levels so everyone can benefit more from the classes. (Intermediate - 9:00AM) - Consist of the players who understand, but may not have completely mastered all skills. In addition, these players will be fully comfortable with 4v4, and 3v3 as well as 2v2. These lessons are for players that have some experience playing the sport. (Beginner - 10:30AM) - Consists of players relatively new to the game of volleyball or those in the process of learning the basic skills of accurate serving, passing and doing three hits. We will go over the rules and basic fundamentals of playing, focusing on 4v4's and 3v3's If you have to ask what lesson you should come to please come to the 9:00am and I will ask you to stay for the 10:30am class if I feel you need to work on your basics more. We will also be adding a Volleyball Fitness Class "Boot Camp" once a month for those of you who want to focus on mainly the conditioning geared toward beach volleyball. So keep an eye out for that. Coaches: Jason Cost: Bring $10 cash and paid direct to your coach Map: http://www.communitywalk.com/west_la_volleyball_meetup_spot/map/1580010 Disclaimer: Coaches reserve the right to cancel lessons if there are no RSVPs on the meetup event at least 24 hrs prior to the lesson. Please RSVP to let them know you are coming.

Beach Volleyball @ Will Rogers (Saturday)

Ocean Front (across the street from Patrick's Roadhouse)

ATTENDANCE: Average 30-50 players throughout the day on weekends. (You may not see a lot of RSVPs due to regulars not RSVPing every week but there are always people there. We do ask people to please RSVP for this reason.) FORMAT: Open Play, All Levels, 2s / 3s / 4s TIME: Flexible. Come when you want. Mornings tend to have more beginners (due to classes) and afternoons tend to have more intermediates. Mornings tend to be occasionally overcast and cooler, making it one of my favorite times to play. WEATHER: We generally play year-round and only stop for high winds (15+ mph) and heavy rain. Hottest hours tend to be 12PM-2PM. HOST: Organizers will have some lines and balls when available. Occasionally we cannot make it, so it's helpful to bring extra lines or volleyballs. EQUIPMENT: Courts have nets and are first-come, first-serve. Lines and volleyballs are what we ask people to bring. RULES: FIVB http://www.fivb.org/EN/Refereeing-Rules/documents/FIVB-BeachVolleyball_Rules2013-EN_20130531.pdf (We ask people NOT to play jungle ball which is to one hit. This is a team sport.) WHAT SHOULD I BRING: Water, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, sand socks (for playing on hot sand), beach umbrella (optional), beach blanket, etc. PARKING: Beach parking is about $15 (summer) / $9 (non-summer) after 9AM. Cheaper before 9AM. Free residential parking is available. See map for more details. ALTERNATE LOCATION: We relocate when tournaments such as CBVA take our usual spot. From our usual spot, turn toward Malibu and take a 5 minute walk to the next group of courts. See map for more details. MAP: http://www.communitywalk.com/west_la_volleyball_meetup_spot/map/1580010
