Beach Season- NEW Information for 2021!

501 Beach Volley is the longest standing junior beach program in Central Arkansas. We were the first to provide training and competition opportunities in the Delta Region, and we continue to provide innovative beach programming. 

We are excited to announce information for our 6th season of beach volleyball!

ALL 2021 Beach Practices will be @ the 501 Volley Facility (4107 Richards Road, North Litlte Rock, AR 72117). We are completing landscaping around our 3 brand new lighted beach courts and can not wait to break them in!

 After talking with our beach staff, we have determined that smaller, more intentional skill based practice groups will yield more competitive practice/play and better results.   In order for us to do this, we will be conducting brief skill evaluations prior to players registering for practice days/times. 

After skill evaluations, players will be notified of their practice group, and will then be able to register fo the practice days/times for that group that fits their schedule.

 Players WILL be assigned to practice groups based on skill level, and not limited to age groups. Players will not be assigned partners, and are encouraged to sign up for practice times with their chosen partner/partners.

At 501 Volley, we want our beach athletes to be able to take advantage of as much opportunity to play beach volleyball as possible. Players will be able to participate in as many practice sessions per week as they choose that best works with their schedule.  Players will pay per practice they register for, and not a lump sum for a set number of weeks.

501 Volley indoor national team players for 2021 will be able to sign up for 8 free beach practices during May/June, the equivalent to one "beach season" as in year's past (8 practices).

Ages: 11 and under-18 and under
Dates: Practices will begin the week of May 10th, 2021
