2016 Club FAQ's

WHAT IS NP BEACH CLUB?

NP BEACH VOLLEYBALL CLUB is one of the premier beach volleyball clubs in the country. Founded by former AVP Professional Player, Brian Chapman plays an active role in coaching players in each region. We operate similar to an indoor volleyball club, but we are completely independent from ANY indoor volleyball club. Club teams practice 1 time per week and compete in 4 Beach Volleyball Tournaments during the summer. Performance Club teams practice 2 times per week and compete in 6 or more tournaments. All divisions are coached by the top beach volleyball players/coaches in the state!!

WHERE IS NP BEACH CLUB?

We are in Portland, Salem and still growing!

WHEN IS THE NP BEACH CLUB SEASON? Our first practices will start the week of May 9th for some and the week of June 13th for others. We work around your indoor volleyball schedule and offer make-up practices for any missed practices. Email us for tryout information: npbeachvolleyballclub@gmail.com.

DO I NEED TO SIGN UP WITH A PARTNER?

It is not mandatory to sign up with a partner, however we do recommend it. We do have some players that sign up for club without partners and NP BEACH coaches and staff help team up players. Some players will have the opportunity to compete with a few partners during the summer.

WHY NP BEACH CLUB?

-NP BEACH CLUB Director, and former AVP Player, Brian Chapman plays an active role in coaching players in each region.

-NP BEACH CLUB members are coached by top beach volleyball players and coaches.

-NP BEACH CLUB continues to lead by combining the physical and technical environment along with the mental strategies of the game.

-Players stay in shape, increase vertical, and also stay on top of their game over the summer.

-Ask any of our NP BEACH players and they will tell you that the fastest improvement they've seen in their volleyball game, took place at the beach!!

-NP BEACH CLUB players have made the semi-finals or finals in every juniors division at the 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 West Coast Championship Tournament in Seaside, capturing many 1st place titles and beating teams from California and Canada. In 2013 and 2014 our top jrs teams competed in the womens Pro division and did very well against the top pro teams!

IF I PLAY AAU, JVA or USAV CAN I PLAY FOR NP BEACH?

Yes, we are independent of all other volleyball clubs, so players can play indoor with one club and then play for NP BEACH CLUB in the summer.  NP BEACH CLUB is insured and all Coaches must pass a background check. Junior players will receive points (just like the pros), in each of the NPBVA Jrs Tour beach volleyball events.
