Beach Education Track and Programming

Beach Education Track

The 2022 convention schedule will include a beach education track targeted specifically for beach coaches. Both on-court and classroom sessions will be offered led by some of the top coaches in the beach game. The sessions will include topics ranging from player development and training methods to new drill ideas and team systems.

In addition to the educational sessions you won’t want to miss the Beach Coaches General Meeting on Friday morning as well as several focus group discussions to dig deeper into specific topics and have conversations that help move the sport forward.

Please see the schedule below for the beach coach programming during the convention and virtual convention. Be sure to check back frequently for updates as new beach programming will be added to the schedule leading up to the convention. Register today!
