FAQ

When and Where?

Clinics dates will be every Tuesday and Thursday from 5pm-6pm for High Schoolers and 6pm-7pm for Middle Schoolers May 28th-August 1st! This summer we are also offering a Summer All-Access option which includes attendance to every practice within age group purchased, a Tidal Jersey, Sand Socks, and a workout plan from our Personal Trainer (saving over $200).

 

If the Summer All-Access is not for you, then athletes select the dates and clinic times that they are able to attend and only pay per-session. When registering, please double check that you select the correct date and clinic time.

We are so excited to announce that we will be at a new location this summer: Franconia Rec Center (formerly known as Lee District Rec Center)! The new courts feature deeper sand, high-quality and adjustable nets, more sand space for serving and diving, and a fence around the courts to help with ball shagging. In order to secure this court for the summer, practice session costs have increased $5 to help offset the increase in court rental fees.

Clinics are held at Franconia Rec Center Sand Volleyball Courts. The address is 6601 Telegraph Rd, Alexandria, VA 22310

Why Beach Volleyball?

Beach volleyball is a great way to increase athleticism, mental toughness, court communication, and vertical jump. In the sand, athletes have to be quick and communicate well with their partner. These are skills that even the most talented indoor player can utilize to further their athletic career. Try out one of our clinics to see how beach volleyball can elevate your volleyball career to the next level!

What should I bring to the clinics?

All players must have an AVP Membership and a signed waiver in order to participate in our clinics. Players should also bring water.

Optionally, some athletes like to bring sunscreen (highly recommended), sunglasses, a hat/visor, sand socks, and a towel.

Which AVP Membership should I purchase?

Our club is a proud AVP Partner. This means that all of our athletes are required to be AVP Members in order to participate in our clinics. This will give our athletes injury insurance. Please click here to register as an AVP Member. Make sure to select Tidal as your club for insurance purposes.

Players only participating in our clinics and not in AVP tournaments only need a Bronze Membership ($15). Athletes that wish to play in AVP qualifying tournaments throughout the summer will need a Silver Membership ($25).

Once a membership is acquired, please email Coach Kelly proof of your membership and Member ID Number to kelly.tidalbvb@gmail.com

Is there a cancellation policy?

Yes. Athletes must inform Coach Kelly that they will not be able to attend a clinic a minimum of 24 hours in advance to receive a refund. Any cancellations less than 24 hours in advanced will not receive a refund. Credit options for a future practice may also be applied instead of a refund.

All-access athletes will not receive refunds for missed practices.

Any cancellations made by Tidal BVB, like a rain cancelation, will result in a full refund to athletes that purchased a daily attendance. Notice of a cancellation will be made a minimum of two hours ahead of the clinic start time via email on file for each athlete.

How to pay?

Tidal Beach Volleyball is fully aware of the ever-growing costs of youth sports. We want to grow the sport of beach volleyball without letting costs be a limiting factor. To do so, we charge $35 per practice and athletes only pay for sessions that they can make! We understand that families travel during the summer, athletes get sick or hurt, or events come up and an athlete cannot make every practice.

Please note that we have increased our practice price from $30 to $35 in order to secure better quality courts for our athletes this season. Tidal practices will be at Franconia Rec beach volleyball courts this year! The courts have deeper sand, high quality nets that are adjustable, and more sand space for serving and diving.

We are accepting payments via Square. Athletes can pay online to the directed Square Site prompted when selecting a clinic OR pay in-person before the session begins. A coach will have a Square credit/debit card reader on-hand at the courts.
