Join us in Des Moines for this awesome one day event! Sign up for our morning clinic & you'll learn the skills and tactics of the beach 2v2 game from BCAP certified clinicians and special guest clinicians, with new drills and techniques as recommended by the USA Beach staff! And, also sign up to play in our early-bird 2v2 tournament that afternoon so you'll have a chance to try out these new skills! The clinic and the tournament are for junior teams of 2 players, in either the female or male divisions from 12U-20U.
NEW THIS YEAR - Players received a towel instead of a shirt. They look amazing!
The weather was AWESOME and the level of play amazing. Can't wait to see these teams at tournaments this year.
