The OVA's SPIKES on the Beach program offers an engaging Play to Learn format for youth aged 8-12 to begin playing beach volleyball. A half hour of drills and skills led by certified coaches, followed by an hour of actual gameplay means that your child will learn the necessary fundamentals and put them to use right away!
