Beach Volleyball – Boys

Congratulations to the Mustangs for winning its 6th consecutive IBVL Regional Championship, confirming Mira Costa’s status as a powerhouse beach volleyball program.
IBVL Beach Volleyball Season
The 2023 IBVL Beach Season kicks off on Saturday, September 2nd and concludes at the Southern Pacific IBVL Championships in Hermosa Beach on Saturday, October 7th.  For more specific tournament dates and location, please visit 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.
Tryout Info:
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 2023 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 Thursday, August 24 and Friday, August 25 from  2:30pm–4:30pm, which is the first week of school.  Location for tryouts and all practices will be on the South side of the Manhattan Beach Pier. Team roster placement begins on Day 1, August 24th, with coaches finalizing rosters by end of day on Day 2, August 25th.  It is recommended that athletes attend both 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.**


Parent Meeting:
Coach Seain will lead a MANDATORY parent meeting at the end of tryouts on Friday, August 25th at 4:30 PM.  This is a wonderful opportunity to meet your Head Coach, his staff, and learn more about the program.


Training Schedule:
Team training will begin Tuesday, August 29th. (3 V, JV, F/S pairs will be chosen to compete on Saturday, September 2nd.)
In season, the teams will practice 2:30-4:30pm twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday).
For Beach PE, participants will meet 2:30-4:30pm twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday).  Dates and times are subject to change.
