This is our primary summer program that we have been running for the last 18 years. We are returning to the same summer format that led our program to the top! We have more practice options and smaller groups to offer the best summer sand training program in the area!
Program Duration: May 8 - July 28
Practices: General Practice Sessions are M & W from 5-7pm, National Team Sessions are T, TH & F from 5-7pm while the athletes are still in school.
Once school is out, practices will move to the morning/day time starting June 5th (General Practice Sessions will be M-TH 12pm-2pm and National Team Sessions will be T, W, TH 10am-12pm.
****If you need different practice days, please email email@example.com. We have options to get everyone involved.
Tournaments: There are typically tournaments every Friday night (starting May 19th - September 1st) and on designated weekends. The schedule for tournaments we are hosting will be posted on our Tournaments page.
Partners: Players choose their own partners, so players that register with a partner have the option to play with that person or choose from any of the other players in our program. Players that come in as an individual will need to promote themselves and be open to asking other players to partner with. We can help match up available players, based on their skill level and what events they can play in. Coaches will help facilitate available partnerships, but it is up to each player to secure a partner for each tournament.
Cost: The cost is $985 for the summer.
Registration: We are now offering online registration!

At 692 NEXT, we have several groups of players, from those who are just starting to learn the Beach game, all the way up to our Elite level players that have committed or are looking for College scholarship opportunities or even the Pro tour.
The Elite groups of players, within our program, represent our “National Teams”. This year we will have 2 National Team groups. Each group consists of around 24-30 players that are selected during our annual tryout event, based on a series of skills challenges and performance level evaluations. These groups play in several events throughout the season and represent the top players for 692 NEXT.
This is our “Best-of-the-Best” group of athletes and we’re proud to have many of our Alumni players who have moved up the ranks to become some of the nation’s best players in beach volleyball at the NCAA level and beyond.
This year we are opening our Elite group tryouts to anyone, in grades 6-12, who are willing to commit to our new “flex” program and represent 692 NEXT throughout the Spring and Summer seasons.
Each player tries out as an individual. **You do not have to be registered in one of our seasons to try out. BUT, if you make the teams, we will require some level of commitment to our practice schedule to secure your spot on the team**
Tryouts begin on March 7th and 9th from 5:00pm-7:00pm (additional accommodations will be made on a case-by-case basis); and there is a $50 tryout fee paid on the day they try out.
IF YOU CAN NOT MAKE THE TRYOUT DATES, PLEASE CONTACT OUR DIRECTOR AT 692DIRECTOR@GMAIL.COM TO ARRANGE A TRYOUT TIME THAT WORKS WITH YOUR SCHEDULE.
