National Sand Program
The CSV National Sand Program is the premier training and competitive experience for athletes who are serious about improving and competing in the sand.
Players in the CSV National Program will train with a specific partner all summer on Friday's from 9:00a - 11:00am at Four Lakes in Lisle. This time frame is designed for our best athletes to work in small groups with our national coaches. They will have the opportunity to train alongside current AVP players, coaches, and indoor professional players.
The goal of the program is to have the best players in Illinois compete on the national platform. To accomplish this we have booked our flights, hotels and cars for our coaching staff at the following events:
June 9th - Montrose Beach, IL - USA Beach National Qualifier
July 19th - 21st (U14 & U18) - Siesta Key, FL - USA Beach National Championship
July 22nd - 24th (U12 & U16) - Siesta Key, FL - USA Beach National Championship
July 24th - 26th - Hermosa Beach, CA - AVP First National Championship
July 30th - August 1st - Manhattan Beach, CA - USA A1 National Championship
August 4th - 5th - Montrose Beach, IL - Boys Midwest Championship
August 18th - 19th - AVP First National Club Championship (Girls Only)
Upon signing up all nationals team athletes must indicate to the best of their ability, the events they plan on attending. This helps us gauge how many coaches we will send to each event. We will work to have between one and four coaches at all travel events.

Attendance, what happens when we are on vacation/camp/work/and more?
Attendance is much more critical for those who are committing to the Youth National Training Program. We understand and will work with individual circumstances, but we highly encourage players to miss as few events as possible. Being successful in competition is the primary goal of this program, and time spent with your partner on the court is critical to accomplishing this goal. Please take this level of commitment seriously when considering signing up for our National Training Program.
