Beach Volleyball – Boys
Congratulations to the Mustangs for winning its 5th consecutive IBVL Regional Championship, confirming Mira Costa’s status as a powerhouse beach volleyball program.
IBVL Beach Volleyball Season:
The 2022 IBVL Beach Season kicks off on Saturday, August 27th and concludes at the Southern Pacific IBVL Championships in Hermosa Beach on Saturday, October 8th. For more specific tournament dates and location, please visit https://www.ibvl.org/. Each weekend during the season, three player pairs are chosen to represent the Varsity, JV, and Frosh/Soph squads. Each week, coaches will determine player pairs for that weekend’s tournament. This creates a focused, competitive environment that gives every athlete an opportunity to earn playing time.
Post IBVL/Beach PE Program:
After the beach volleyball season ends, players can continue in the Beach Volleyball PE program, which will award PE credit to participants. Without the Beach PE program, students who need PE credit would transition to Costa’s PE program (they would speak to their counselors to make the change in Aeries). As a reminder, all 9th and 10th graders must enroll in PE or play a sport each semester (4 semesters total), so the Beach Volleyball PE program would cover one semester of that requirement.
The Beach Volleyball Program encourages all boys with organized volleyball experience AND with a genuine interest in beach volleyball to try out. To ensure optimal coach to player ratios, the 2022 program will be capped at 60 players TOTAL across the Varsity, Junior Varsity, Frosh/Soph teams. All players train on the same practice days and at the same times to create a “one team” environment.
Tryouts will be held Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, August 16-18, 4:00-6:00 PM, which is the week before school begins (Wednesday, August 24th), with makeup tryout dates held that following week. Location for tryouts and all practices will be 2nd Street, Manhattan Beach. You will know it by the piles of bikes parked by the volleyball courts. Team roster placement begins on Day 1, August 16th, with coaches finalizing rosters by end of day on Day 3, August 18th. It is recommended that athletes attend all three tryouts.
**To add your son’s name to the tryout and program email list, please fill out this Google Forms. For incoming 9th graders, please forward this email to any player who might be interested. Word of mouth is helpful in spreading the word to new Costa students and players.**
Coach Kyle will lead a MANDATORY parent meeting at the end of tryouts on Thursday, August 18th at 6:00 PM. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet your Head Coach and learn more about the program.
Team training will begin Tuesday, August 23rd. (3 V, JV, F/S pairs will be chosen to compete on Saturday, August 27st.)
In season, the teams will practice 3:30-5:30 twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday).
For Beach PE, participants will meet 2:30-4:30 twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday). Dates and times are subject to change.

All athletes must complete the Athletic Packet, outlined in detail on this Mira Costa Athletics page. The Athletic Packet must be completed one month prior to tryouts, which is mid-July. Please do not wait until last minute, this is a Mira Costa High School requirement, there are no exceptions.
