Welcome to Beach Volleyball California

It was with the adrenalin rushing, after a thrilling game of beach volleyball on the south side of Huntington pier that the two founders, Daniel Dalanhese and Hayden Jones decided to establish ‘Beach Volleyball California’.

With their combined passion for coaching "Beach Volleyball California" quickly evolved into a year round program of youth camps, clinics, and HB Sands programs.

On January 15th, 2010 the NCAA announced that sand volleyball will become a scholarship sport for women so the future looks exciting for our youth beach volleyball players!

  • Beach Volleyball California also runs classes at the Huntington Beach pier, through the HB Sands recreation program.  We run adult, youth, and fitness classes through Spring, Summer and Fall.  Click on the "HB Sands" tab to find out more.

But most importantly, a big welcome from the team at Beach Volleyball California.
