We’ve got the fun, sun (we hope!) and sand for your summer holidays!

Your kids will have a blast, learning to play beach volleyball and other beach sports with our amazing coaches at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre! We cater for every level- from those that have never touched a volleyball to our regular junior attendees.

Our camp-cohort will be led by our fantastic coaching staff through a series of sessions, game-based activities, and competitions. Our programme has been created by our head coaches to ensure that your child has fun throughout, develops important teamwork skills, and leaves camp with new techniques and tactics needed to succeed in beach volleyball.
We’ll host games and mini-tournaments each day to put skills into practice, with fun adaptations for all levels!
It’s not all beach volleyball! Our coaches have been working on loads of other beach sports and games too, to provide different learning, and playing environments. Our fantastic team will be running:
And loads of other games in the sand!
Our affordable camps take the hassle out of planning your holidays and give your kids the chance to meet new people and learn new sports in a fun and safe environment.
Our camps encourage independence, whilst ensuring each child’s welfare is kept a priority. We’ll take regular breaks for hygiene, hydration, food and sun protection!
We group our camps to ensure relevant delivery, and the best chances for development.
Our staff are awesome, I know we are biased, but they actually are. They hold vast amounts of experience between them and we even have current and former England national team beach volleyball players!
That's right, your child could be getting coached by Commonwealth Games athletes and future Olympians!
Our coaches pride themselves in being able to deliver highly engaging sessions for all ages and levels of child.
