NP BEACH VOLLEYBALL CLUB was one of the first clubs in the country to promote sand volleyball among junior players. NP Beach remains among the premier beach clubs in the NW and continues to lead by combining the physical and technical environment with the mental strategies of the game. Founded by former AVP professional player and Seaside Pro Division champion Brian Chapman, the club has grown tremendously in the past few years but still prioritizes individualized instruction, skills training, conditioning and tournament coaching throughout the summer months in the Portland and Salem areas.
Why beach volleyball? Players stay in shape, increase vertical, and also stay on top of their game over the summer. Ask any of our NP BEACH players and they will tell you that the fastest improvement they've seen in their indoor volleyball game took place at the beach.And, in addition to getting an incredible workout and providing the fastest way to gain all-around volleyball skills, there is a new reason to play beach volleyball-- a college scholarship.
It’s official! NCAA has announced beach/sand volleyball as its newest collegiate sport, www.ncaa.org/sports/sand-volleyball. There are currently 41 colleges that have beach volleyball programs, with an additional 40+ colleges offering programs in the next few years. See the current list at www.collegesand.org/schools.
NP Beach Club was the first juniors beach volleyball club in the Northwest to have players earn Division I sand volleyball scholarships in this quickly growing sport.
