The GCAS Beach Volleyball program exists to provide additional support and development opportunities to aspiring young male and female Volleyball athletes of the Gold Coast region who have applied to be part of the program. These applicants are then overseen by the Gold Coast regional development staff.
Athletes will be invited to participate in a high performance development program incorporating both practical skills and personal development. This Program is aimed at providing additional benefits outside of normal club and association trainings.
The focus of training will be on individual fundamental skill development, team dynamics, winning strategies and basic fitness. In addition to the skills, team development and fitness training there will be core educational sessions for the athletes to help themselves prepare off the field and grow on a personal level.
Beach Volleyball has been added to the Commonwealth Games program and is a NCAA sport in the US. Beginners are welcome to come and discover this sport with us.
The program will run from February to November with regular squad training sessions focused on individual skill development as well as teamwork. In addition to on-field training sessions and competition opportunities, athletes receive access to educational seminars to assist with their personal development off the playing field.
