How can I keep track of my attendance?

We ask all our players to be responsible for their attendance and must check in to all practices. Failure to do so may effect your membership.

Do I need a partner?

Optimum Beach does not require partner practices as we focus on  individual development. We encourage you to schedule a private lesson with your partner should you wish to do so or join with  friends. Referral Discounts are available.

What if I miss a practice?

You are responsible for your own attendance.  As a courtesy to your coach and fellow players, we ask that you notify us in advance, in the event that you must miss a practice. Our focus is on the players at practice on any given day. It is important to note that you get out what you put in, so I wouldn’t miss too often. If you have an upcoming vacation, please notify your coach as soon as possible so he/she can help you choose other program options to meet financial and time commitments.Unfortunately, there will be no discounts, fee reductions or refunds for missed practices.

Who are the coaches?

All our coaches have a combination of collegiate experience of no less than 4 years, pro level competition experience of no less than 2 years and no less than 8 years of beach volleyball experience or a combination of all three. All our coaches are vetted and must undergo “Optimum Beach Coach Training” prior to working with players.
