About Power Beach

Fees – Our fees include court rental, equipment and coaching expenses.

Sessions: Prices are based on 12 training sessions – we have built in 4 extra dates in case players need to miss a training session. You are paying for 12 sessions but have 4 *FREE* optional sessions you are welcome to attend. If we have more than 3 rain cancellations, we will add dates.

Power Beach Gear:  We will have an online store where players can purchase gear.

Playing Partner – You DO NOT need to have a playing partner to join our program. Playing with different people is part of learning the game. Our practices will give you plenty of experience pairing up with someone you may not know well, and if you don’t have a partner come tournament time we can offer suggestions to help you.

Tournaments: Our players are encouraged to play in at least of 3 doubles tournaments this summer. Tournament registration fees are not included in tuition.   Power Beach players will be given discounts at select tournaments.  We will provide a list of all local tournaments this summer. 

Coaching Staff: The Power Beach coaching staff consists of experienced coaches and open-level beach players.

Leading our Power Beach coaching staff is Roberta Holehouse McGuiney, 2-time Pottstown Rumble Open Champion, 2-time Smash Open Champion (and many more) and open-level beach player. Coaching alongside her is open-level player and BCAP certified coach Eric McGuiney. His knowledge of the doubles game makes him one of the most experienced and top-notch beach coaches in the area.  This season we also welcome Benny Bensend former AVP player to the staff and together they will be running the King of Prussia Power Beach program. Long-time doubles player Tim Sledz will be running the show in Lehigh again this year!

Coach Sledz started playing volleyball in a sand court outside his dorm in California and it is the game of doubles that he is most passionate about.  The doubles scene is a great learning environment.  It is a relaxed environment off the court and other players are patient are willing to help you learn.  On the court, it tests your skills both physically and mentally.  Doubles boils the game down to its most fundamental form.  The hard work you have put into becoming a solid all around player combined with your will to succeed shines through in doubles.
