DaKine Regional Warriors

DaKine Beach Volleyball Academy is available to players of all levels and skills.  There are no “cuts” for players who want to play on our regional squad; but rather a seeding day, by age group, will be held to evaluate and assess each players current skill set, to place them in a training group of similar age and skilled athletes. These training groups are open to boys and girls, ages 8-18 years old. Seeding day for the summer program will be on Saturday, April 22.

For the 2023 Summer Season, we have created two 8 week sessions to accommodate everyone’s busy summer schedules. The first 8 week session will be 90 minute practices, twice a week in the evenings at DaKine Sports Center. The second 8 week session will have 2 hour practices, twice a week during the day at DaKine Sports Center. We will not be offering a club training option on Alki Beach in West Seattle this year; but we have added more summer camps to that location.

Regardless of which session you plan on attending (or both), please plan to attend seeding day on Saturday, April 22nd to be properly evaluated into a summer training group.

All practices will begin with a dynamic warm up, followed by 30 minutes of ball control and technique training. The following 30 minutes are focused on strategic drills, using game like situations. The remainder of practices will be structured queen of the court scrimmaging, followed by cardio & strength training.

Our practices are designed to feed and fuel the complete athlete, lending from the Hawaiian tradition of the Lokahi Triangle. Lokahi means unity & agreement, and the triangle refers to achieving harmony- mentally, physically & spiritually. We’ll be including mental training exercises to encourage focus and  help with visualization. DaKine athletes are leaders- they never follow; we’ve set the standard in hand setting on the beach, across the nation, and we intend to lead our athletes to success, both off and on the sand. Practice plans will be customized and developed by Club Director Chris Hannemann.

Competing is an important part in developing your skills and game strategies. We encourage our Warriors to scrimmage and compete as often as they can, with as many different partners as they can; this helps give context to practice drills and goal setting. In addition to the Queen of the Beach events that will be hosted at DaKine in University Place, we will be hosting several AVP America juniors tournaments in late winter & early spring on the sand courts at DaKine. If you are not sure what tournaments might be appropriate for your athlete’s skill level and experience, feel free to reach out and discuss the available options with DaKine Coaches & Staff.
