The LAB One Elite Travel Teams

New for 2021, The LAB is introducing a squad based training program designed to offer college-bound “beach only” players the opportunity to experience training, traveling, competing, and recovering as a beach team before arriving on campus.

This program will have limited space and interested players will have to compete in an evaluation process to earn spots on one of two teams (Black and Red) that will travel to compete against the best beach clubs in the nation at BVCA Club Challenge Series events (http://beachvolleyballclubs.com/bvca-club-challenges/ ).

We are planning to compete in as many events as possible (2-3 between March and June) with the goal of qualifying for the BVCA National Championships in July. Evaluations will begin very soon and The Lab is already registered for the tournament March 27 in Houston so please let me know if you are interested in being a evaluated for a spot so I can get you more details.

Please note that this season there will likely be conflicts with HS volleyball and there are definitely conflicts with the indoor club season. We will do our best to accommodate but this program will not have the same level of flexibility as our individual training and may not be a fit for everyone.

What makes this program different?

  • Each team will have its own weekly schedule and players will be required to train with their squad a minimum of 2 practices and 1-2 conditioning sessions per week.

  • Coaches will make all partner selections and rank the pairs for BVCA CvC tournaments based on performance in practice.

  • Squad rosters will be “fluid” meaning all spots will stay open for competition throughout the season (yes, you can be moved from 1 squad to another based on performance).

  • LAB coaches will travel with squads for BVCA events (this will result in additional cost per travel event)

More info coming soon!
