Coastal Volleyball - Premier Boys Volleyball in Hampton Roads

THE LONGEST RUNNING AND MOST SUCCESSFUL BOYS' PROGRAM IN HAMPTON ROADS

Coastal Virginia Volleyball Club was created in 1994 to bring the youth players of the Virginia Beach Region the highest-quality on and off court experience available. Coastal began its Boys' program in 1999, and has become a nationally recognized program that continues to produce some of the top boys talent on the East Coast.  Our success in placing athletes into college programs is unprecedented in the Hampton Roads area.  We have a strong core of experienced coaches with a passion for teaching technical skills and sharing our love for the game in a positive environment.

All teams carry 10-12 players.  All teams attend several 2-day tournaments and potentially one or two 3-day tournaments.  Note that if a team carries fewer than 10 players, the budget per player may increase and/or the amount of events attended may decrease.

Additional costs not included in base fee:

  • Uniform Package (up to $300 for National, $200 for Regional)
  • Player travel and lodging
  • Mandatory fundraising credits, or $250 fundraising fee (more info below)

Perks included at no extra cost:

  • Sand training opportunities (more info further down page)
  • HUDL access for 17U - 18U (recruiting/video tool)
  • TVA membership perks which includes free open gym, discounts on TVA gear, discounts at participating local restaurants and businesses (more info on TVA's website)
  • Priority registration for any Coastal camps such as the Next Level camp with Ken Shibuya, which featured NCAA National Championship coaches and players, US Men's National Team staff and players, and professional players.

Fundraising Credit Info:

In order to keep costs down, fundraising is required to help pay for court rental fees, coaches salaries, and more.  There are multiple opportunities throughout the year to meet the requirement.  These include Bingo, the poinsettia sales, event set-up/tear down and support, TVA sand facility maintenance, and potentially other opportunities that come up during the year.  This credit can be met by volunteering just a few times (the exact structure of credits will be included in contract/participation agreement).  If desired, the fee can be paid off for $250 rather than by volunteer credits.

Once the volunteer credits have been met, players/families are welcome to continue to volunteer to begin reducing their tuition.
