Spend a summer on the sand.  Come and join Canterbury's best junior volleyball players in a group training environment led by experienced coaches.  A great way to make new friends, play against your school and club mates and develop your all around skills. 

Purpose of Canterbury beach squad – is to provide a holistic athlete-centered development environment to encourage long term involvement in the game.   


The beach squad environment offers athletes the opportunity to develop the physical, mental, and emotional skills and knowledge to go on to play, coach, manage or be involved in whatever level of adult beach volleyball they choose. Emphasis is placed on quality engagement with coaches and players, positivity, support, encouragement and improved volleyball skills and game development.  Results are a by-product of the overarching purpose and not the priority.
