2020-21 Tryout/Season info

The 2020-21 season is right around the corner and below are the details for another great season of girls volleyball at Ocean Volleyball Club.

Ocean Volleyball Academy information will be posted soon. OVA is designed for players who are not placed on a team or aren’t ready for the season long commitment of club. It is usually one hour a week on Sunday and lasts for 8 weeks. There are 3 sessions to choose from depending on age/skill level.

This season will be like no other. We will do our best to schedule tournaments/tri-matches. We reserve the right to substitute a single day tournament for a tri-match based on tournament availability. Everything will be very fluid as restrictions change throughout the season. The club is currently considering a pause during the High School season and the possibility of extending the season past BeachFest.
