River City Beach Volleyball Club: (12’s/ 14’s/ 16’s/ 18’s)
This year is our first ever River City Juniors Beach Volleyball Club. The goal of our club is to teach and develop players (girls and boys) to transition from indoor to beach volleyball. We will practice twice a week- Mondays and Wednesdays at Sinnott's Sand Bar in Papillion. You may bring a partner or we can help pair you up as well. The age divisions for our club are 12’s, 14’s, 16’s, and 18’s. For our first year as a club, we are going to compete in local tournaments (Omaha and Lincoln). The goal of our club is to grow and eventually compete out at the coasts! Players will be responsible for paying entry fees into tournaments. You will have a coach at each local tournament that you sign up for. Coaches will assist players in signing up for tournaments if needed.
