The Ducks will attempt to create make up session, however, make up sessions will be based on court availability and weather conditions.
Ducks Beach Elite athletes must notify their coaches if they are not attending practice. For all other athletes there is no need to contact coaches regarding missed practices, as a courtesy we do recommend speaking them during the previous practice. The programs have been flexibly created to adapt to varying numbers of participants due to circumstances that come up in the summer. However, we also believe that attending as many sessions as possible is critical to your development.

The Ducks are running a Beach Clinic in July. If you are interested in registering Click Here.
Ducks Beach Ignite, Ducks Beach Club and Ducks Beach Academy is organized in a manner that you do not require a partner to train in practice. Please come to practice with or without a partner, as you will all train as one team. It is also strongly advised that you get the contact information of several athletes on the team in order to find partners to play in tournaments. Due to circumstances in the summer, many athletes are away, it is a good idea to have several contacts to ask in order to find a partner to play with at a tournament. Ducks Beach Elite coaches and athletes will work together to create partnerships that will be successful together. Ducks Beach Elite athletes should attend tryouts with a partner in mind, however, understand the final decisions regarding partners will be at the discretion of the coaching staff, and a decision will be made based on discussions by the athletes and coaching staff.
The Ducks will provide each athlete with t-shirt and an athletic tank top that can be used as a jersey when participating in tournaments. They will arrive in 3-4 weeks after tryouts and distributed to the athletes.
What Do You Need to Bring to Practice
Please bring a water bottle, and dress appropriately for the weather. During cold or rainy days, long spandex and long sleeve shirts are recommended. During hot days, sun glasses, sun block, tank top hat and spandex are recommended.
