Dakine Beach Training is second to none in the NW. With Elite players coming from as far as Portland and Marysville to train together in Tacoma, DaKine has put together the only beach coaching staff in the NW featuring Current and Former Professional Beach Volleyball players. DaKine has become synonymous with excellence in beach volleyball in the NW and has become a focal point for recruitment for collegiate beach volleyball programs from across the country.
DaKine Beach Volleyball Club has FIFTEEN current members and alumni of our roster who either play or are committed to play collegiate beach volleyball at a NCAA Division 1/2 level!
Our Local Summer team practices out of three locations. Our South location is the DaKine Sports Center in University Place, WA and we also train out of our North Club location that practices at Alki Beach throughout the summer. We are also excited to offer Willis Tucker Park in Snohomish as a new training site to our program!
