Elena (age 13) & Maria (age 16) team up to compete in their first beach tournament of the year and finish strong in extreme conditions in the 16U Open Division! Elena's first 16U event and Maria's first ever beach tournament experience came out on a positive note after both put in lots of hard work over the past month preparing and learning. They experienced the beauty of a sunny Florida beach morning followed by an attack of dark clouds, cold winds and stormy rain causing the ball to weigh heavier than normal and conditions unnormal for beach volleyball. They pushed through and stayed mentally tough to the finish!
SoFLO Beach hosted a 10-team Parent & Athlete pair tournament on Saturday Oct. 10th at the newly built SoFLO Sandbox. Celebrating the End of Summer, parents and athletes competed well in a beautiful day that saw passing rain and the Florida sunshine. Great job to all participants!!
Congratulations to the Winners: Mateo and Mom (Cyndi)
Followed by Runner-up dad and son pair: B&B Aces (Diego/Ricard)
Tied for 3rd Place: Team Wade (Audrey/Krista) & Team Blockbuster (Payton/Ryan)

SoFLO Beach has a permanent training facility
SoFLO Beach Volleyball has moved our Sand training to our newly built Soref JCC Sand courts known as the SandBox. The 2 new courts are filled with 550 tons of sifted beach sand and will provide 5,600 square feet playing surface with entire perimeter fenced with a soft polymer, a perfect venue for SoFLO Volleyball athletes to train and compete in the sand volleyball game. Having these courts will allow for SoFLO Volleyball to establish year around training, league play and run tournament events.
SoFLO Beach Program offers Development Youth Instruction, Elite Junior Training, Intermediate to Advanced Adult Classes, and Individual Private Lessons all on the sand.
Sunny South Florida is one of the most ideal environments in the world to learn how to play and train on the sand.
