COACHING AT BEACH EVENTS

WAVE coaches will always be present at Ocean Beach, Coronado and Carlsbad events. Outside of that we will be at the national events later this summer such as the BVCA, AAU Junior Nationals,, AAU Junior Olympics and the CBVA Cal Cup Championships. *Players who are actively participating in our Beach Club will receive the most coaching at these events.

Coaching by a coach or parent can only take place: prior to the start of the set or match, during a player called time-out and after the set is complete. THAT IS IT! Please help us follow these rules while being rad parents who are supportive of the system, applaud good plays and show respect to all. We are a top notch program and you will need to act accordingly in order to participate and associate with WAVE Beach Volleyball.
