ProjectU Beach Training Camps

2020 will be our third year hosting our ProjectU Beach Training Camps, they are on and off court camps that include creative on-court skill development training, experiential learning, competitive cauldron games, film sessions, advanced defensive and offensive concepts and coaches panels.  Each athlete will leave the event with feedback they need to make their game to its absolute best.   The event is open to all athletes who are committed to understanding themselves and moving ahead as a player and a person. Per NCAA rules, this event is open to any and all entrants limited only by age, gender, grade, or number.

“Over the past 20 years, we have developed a gestalt theory of elite performance in beach volleyball. Not only will this camp will be a point for athletes to learn from some of the best college coaches, but also learn how to apply what they learned and take their game to the next level.” -Stephen McCarthy, director of ProjectU Showcases
