Youth Beach Programs

We are excited to announce the creation of the TVA Beach Training all year round! Being host to one of the largest outdoor beach volleyball leagues and tournament series on the East Coast, and having the only Indoor Sand Facility in the region, we are ready to branch out and grow the youth game on the beach!

TVA Neptune League-Beginner to Intermediate Division

Who can play Beach Club?
TVA Beach Club is for boys and girls ages 10-16.

Do I need a partner to participate in this program?
No. You will have other teammates who can partner with you and the head coach can decide/help you to get one.

When and where will teams practice?
Teams will practice at the TVA Sand Courts (2644 Dean Drive, Virginia Beach, VA 23452) or at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront at 9th Street. Practices will begin as early as 5:30 pm.

Are tournaments/leagues included in the program fee?
No; however, we have multiple tournaments that they can choose to participate in. Players must have a partner and pay the applicable membership and tournament registration fees to participate.

Will coaches travel to tournaments with my child?
No. You are welcome to request that they come watch, but coaches are not required to attend tournaments.

What is the POD System?
A pod is a small group of participants (Four to Six) that train together and are grouped together based on age and skill level. Age groups are typically paired by even years ex. U12, U14, U16, & U18 so skill is the most important factor when pairing the PODs

I am a beginner, can I play in a “Premier POD” and practice twice a week?
Yes! Premier PODs practice twice a week. Participants will still be subject to an initial assessment to help place them within the correct group of players.

I know I want to play, but I don’t know what POD to register for. What should I do?
If you don’t know whether you’d like to participate with a CLUB POD (One practice a week), or a PREMIER POD (two practices a week), sign up for a CLUB POD. We can always upgrade your registration.
