OPTIMUM BEACH

WINTER-SPRING REGISTRATION OPEN WITH AFFORDABLE PURCHASE OPTIONS FOR JUNIORS AND NEXGEN PLAYERS!

Juniors

At Optimum Beach, all practices are modeled after Brazilian national standards. Founder and Director Priscilla Piantadosi-Lima created our unique and advanced system incorporating highly technical, athletic and mindset training protocols.

It is our intention to have every junior compete in local and national tournaments so they may apply the skills gained. Ultimately, our goal is to have all juniors progress onto the College Recruiting Training Program (CRTP). This elite group has produced nearly 100 collegiate players to date and boasts 100% recruitment rate. 

While our Junior program is open to players from 6th through 12th grade, we enjoy training players as young as 9 years of age in our NexGen Program. 

Privates Lessons:  We also offer private sessions to help players focus on key elements of their game. We can match players to the right coach or if you have a coach in mind, requests are honored (based on coach availability). Interested in private lessons? Click here

Flexible Options: We understand that flexibility is key, which is why we offer a range of package options. Choose from Drop-Ins, 1-month, 3-month, and 6-month packages to suit your schedule and commitment level. 

We have great options for our Hybrid Indoor and Beach Players too:  Our hard-court indoor players gain from beach training as it offers the perfect cross training environment. A beach player does it all, pass, set, block, and hit. If you are weak in any of these areas, beach forces you to work on all skills which helps you become a well-rounded volleyball player. Since beach has become a collegiate sport, coaches are encouraging youth to play beach to help them dramatically improve their indoor game.
