COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Dec. 24, 2019) – More than 90 junior girls and boys beach volleyball athletes are registered for the USAV Beach Holiday Training Program on Dec. 27-30 in Manhattan Beach, Calif.

The Beach Holiday Training Program brings together top junior athletes, identified through beach high performance evaluation, with top coaches to help them on their paths to the podium.

What the coaches are saying:

Ali Lamberson Boys U15 Head Coach: “The USAV Beach Holiday Training Program brings together the best athletes in the country. I’m looking forward to working with this latest crop of talent.” 

Jordan Cheng Boys U17 Head Coach: “Super excited for the staff that’s been put together and to meet and invest in the next generation of USAV beach athletes.”

Andrew Fuller Boys U19 Head Coach: “I love coaching at holiday camp because it’s a time of the year when athletes are especially willing to make upgrades in their games because tournaments are a bit further off into summer. It makes for a special learning environment that gives a great push to our national team programs.” 

Patty Dodd Girls U15 Head Coach: “Winter does not stop our best youth from learning and competing at a high-level. Every year I look forward to coaching at the Beach Holiday camp. It’s a chance for players from all over the country to reconnect and grow their game.” 

Gustavo Rocha Girls U17 Head Coach: “I am honored to be the head coach for the Girls U17 Beach Holiday Training Program. One of the greatest rewards life has offered me is seeking the greatest potential from each of my athletes and to help them realize their goals physically, mentally and emotionally. I look forward to my role in the continued growth of the USAV High Performance Program for future generations.”

Jose Loiola Girls U19 Head Coach: “It’s been a couple of years since I worked with the Holiday Training Program. I am excited and looking forward to being a part of the USAV High Performance Program again.”

Collin Wilson Girls U19 Assistant Coach: “It’s very exciting to work USAV High Performance with some legendary coaches and awesome athletes! It’s an awesome feeling getting to be a part of this program.”
