Juniors Volleyball at Alpharetta Beach!

While I’ve loved my 23 years in real estate, my 38 year recreational addiction is VOLLEYBALL! In 2016 I built a North Atlanta professional beach volleyball facility for adults and juniors activities called Alpharetta Beach!

Alpharetta Beach has been the anchor facility for the A5 Juniors Volleyball Club Beach Program for years. The A5 Juniors Volleyball Club is the most highly esteemed club in the southeast, and this year a they have initiated a substantial upgrade to their beach program.

Announcement from A5 Beach:

“Decades of Experience Strengthens Beach Program
We are excited to announce the following new leadership of our Beach Volleyball program

We are very excited about Beach this season! Our goal is to build a nationally competitive and recognized program. We will do this by developing players who are well rounded technically, solid in game fundamentals and also enjoy playing. Tryouts are coming soon on October 6th, 27th and November 4th, and we are looking for players to field national and regional teams. Our new leadership team is poised to deliver a world class Beach Volleyball experience and we look forward to the start of the season.
