Catch the fever ’cause the beach is back

Beach volleyball season swings into session

Beach volleyball season is just around the corner and BC’s largest and longest running recreational league is set to return to Parksville Community Park.

Can you dig it?

With winter finally, mercifully, winding down and summer on the horizon, a reminder that registration for the upcoming beach volleyball season is underway.

According to Oceanside Outdoor Sport founder Shane Hyde, the adult co-ed triples league gets underway May 11 and will go every Wednesday from 6:30-9ish. 

The league runs for eight weeks and cost to play is $50 per person. As always the adult session is followed by a social held at the Rod & Gun. 

The always popular Youth League kicks off May 10 at 6:30 p.m. and will feature a Youth Doubles division for athletes aged 12-17. The cost is also $50 per person. 

“Both leagues had over 70 teams for the second year in a row — we had a wait-list and were forced to send teams away, so register early,” says Hyde.

New this year, OOS will also be offering beach flag football on Monday nights and beach soccer on Thursday nights.
