Summerside Recreational Volleyball League: Beach Volleyball Camp

Beach Volleyball Camp



Beat the Heat Beach Volleyball Camp

My name is Andrew Costa and I am a former Canada Games beach volleyball athlete and coach. This summer I’m plan to run my 7th beach volleyball camp since 2011. My goal is simple - help develop, grow and promote the sport of beach volleyball across the province of Nova Scotia and the Maritimes. Beach volleyball is currently the fastest growing sport in the world. Not only is it a great sport in itself – it’s an awesome way to build your overall skill set for your indoor game because there are only 2 players per team and it challenges athletes to become better at ALL fundamentals of the game.
