We offer league play six nights a week with options available for all skill levels from recreational to intermediate. The most popular choice of the teams is coed with six players. Coed teams may have up to ten players on their roster and rotate the extra players in during play. Coed rules stipulate that at least as many women as men are on the court at one time. Teams that are new to sand volleyball, start out in a recreational league may move up to intermediate as their skills improve with passing, setting and spike.
