The players train regionally on both east and west coastlines but also have the opportunity to train together nationally during the summer season. As well as entering the VLY. National Tour some of the players will be selected by head coaches to be involved in key tournaments this summer as Ireland look to enhance our beach volleyball reputation around Europe and beyond.
