Get your heads in the sand

Volleyball season is getting close, so get prepared now

From the desk of Shane Hyde a reminder time is running out for teams to register for Oceanside Outdoor Sports’ beach volleyball leagues due to start up May 8.

For more information go to

“The adult co-ed triples league is Wednesdays from 6:30 to 9-ish starting May 9. The league runs for eight weeks and the cost is $50 per person. Like always the adult session is followed by a social held at the Rod and Gun. We already have close to 40 teams registered without our annual e-mail sent out so do not wait to register.

The youth league will start, May 8 at 6:30 p.m. The youth league will feature a youth doubles division for athletes from 12-17. The cost is also $50 per person.


Both leagues had over 70 teams for the third year in a row last year; “we had a wait list and were forced to send teams away, so register early,” reminds Hyde.
