Coaching

Beach Volleyball Coaching

  • Most junior teams do not have coaches at tournaments. However, coaching is allowed in beach volleyball under certain situations.

  • VIOLATION: If a violation is made the referees should give a verbal warning to the person coaching. If it happens again the other team is awarded a point and the tournament director should be notified by the referee or players. NOT THE PARENTS. If it happens again the team will forfeit that set and the coach will be asked to leave the court.

  • A parent may coach but they must follow the coaching guidelines.
