Top Beach Training

Our year-round program is for the beginner to the competitive junior, ages 10-18, with the desire to play in high school, college and beyond. We combine USA & Brazilian style volleyball – the two big beach volleyball powerhouses with the goal of building sand beach volleyball players that are technically competent, competitive and confident.

Beginner: This program is designed with the goal of creating a positive and fun environment for the young athlete.  We emphasize ball control and learning important fundamentals of the game while encouraging fun through open play and good sportsmanship.

Intermediate: This program is focused on preparing the young athlete that would like to play at the high school or college level. It is the start of a more disciplined approach with an emphasis on technique, strategy, mechanics and skill development in a more competitive atmosphere.

Elite Level: This program is for the athlete that wants to play at the collegiate level. We encourage a commitment to frequent practices and a personal desire to improve.  We offer advanced level game strategy, pro level drills and encourage our elite athletes to compete in tournaments at the highest level nationally.  While local tournaments are fun and a great opportunity to learn, we want to see our athletes push themselves and grow out of their comfort zone to see progress.

I am very pleased with the training that Coach Ricardo Guimaraes provided por my Pro-Team in Miami for the duration of four months. Ricardo is a very passionate coach and gives full attention to all of the athletes and provides constructive feedback for them to get better. I personally feel that I got so much better at my approach and serve receive when working with him. We practiced twice a day 5 days a week and the trainings where always specific and with a very positive and constructive vibe. I definitely recommend Carioca services if you are passionate about beach volleyball.”  Sincerely, Estefanie Bethancourt (Tefy)
My daughter is an indoor player and somewhat new to beach volleyball, but is enjoying the “forgiving” court surface, more touches on the ball than indoor offers, and the exceptional coaching that CVC brings to Lamorinda. Thanks for all that you do!”
