NC Sand had it's first season in the summer of 2009. With great interest, girls sand volleyball has become the fastest growing NCAA sport in history. Originally one of the only sand programs in the state, we are now in competition with some of the best clubs in the country. Our top girls and boys teams have represented NC Sand in Regional competitions and National qualifiers/ Championships across the country.
Created and maintained by the success of our athletes our program continues to thrive. Club Director Glenn Cashion, and the entire coaching staff are passionately dedicated to the development of our youth not only athletically, but as responsible adults.
This sport like many others allows opportunity for children to learn conflict resolution, teamwork, sportsmanship, and health. Our club has taken the extra step and specifically designed practices, drills, and tournaments to grow each athletes ability to communicate to resolve conflict with minimal confrontation. Beach Volleyball is a sophisticated sport full of choices which pushes each of our players to grow both mentally and physically.
NC Sand invites athletes of all levels and ages to visit us at a practice or tournament. If you like the sport and you're willing to train, then we can coach you to the best of your ability. We emphasize training our athletes in strategy, technique, attitude, proper nutrition/hydration, and MOST IMPORTANTLY TO HAVE FUN! Each player will get a large number of reps and game play against all levels so that they have the best possible experiences in the sand.
All ages will have the opportunity to advance along all levels. Please contact us for more information. We hope to see you at the next practice!
Here are a few highlights throughout the years

We are proud to be part of the growth of boys' sand volleyball in NC and throughout the country. We love our boys and are proud of the success they have made throughout the years. In the last 4 years, many of our boys teams have qualified for USAV or AAU Nationals, and we have had at least 2 boys teams go to Nationals each year.
We host several tournaments every summer! We love connecting with other local clubs and furthering play!
Some of our "Sand Fleas" love playing in the sand!
