SAS Roots

SAS Roots 2022-2023

SAS Roots is a new initiative for 2022-2023! 

Geared toward athletes in 5th-7th grade, SAS Roots looks to train up talented younger athletes in the sport of beach volleyball.

Those interested in SAS Roots should register for tryouts. All athletes are required to try out. Evaluations by the coaches will determine if the athlete is a better fit for the year round SAS team or for SAS Roots. If the player needs more experience, the coaches may recommend the beach club at Highline Arena as a third option. 

SAS Roots Details

  • Sundays 2:30-4:00pm
  • Highline Arena
  • 11/13/22-4/23/23
  • SAS Roots tank included
  • $600

Please let us know if you'd still like to try out for SAS Roots! We have a few spots left and can arrange to meet with you! meg@highlinearena.com



Frequently Asked Questions

WHO IS COACHING SAS ROOTS?

  • SAS Roots is coached by the same coaches as our year round team. We are proud to have a deep roster of coaches dedicated to our programming.

 

CAN ANYONE SIGN UP FOR SAS ROOTS?

  • Any female athlete in grades 5-7 is welcome to tryout. The coaches will determine if each player is a good fit for the program and then make a recommendation for either SAS Roots or the Highline Beach Club.  

 

HOW MANY PLAYERS DO YOU ACCEPT FOR SAS ROOTS?

  • We are not looking for a set number of athletes. We make offers to as many or as few players meet the criteria we are looking for in an athlete. 

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS PRACTICE?

  • SAS Roots is different from the indoor model. We focus on individual training, so the only athlete that is affected if you do not come is YOU. There will be no discounts, fee reductions or refunds for missed practices.

 

WILL THERE BE TOURNAMENTS FOR SAS ROOTS PLAYERS? 

  • We don't expect SAS Roots players to travel to compete in tournaments, however Highline Arena will offer both women's and juniors tournaments throughout the fall, winter and spring that would be a great idea to sign up for. 

 

CAN I PLAY INDOOR CLUB WHILE ALSO PARTICIPATING IN SAS ROOTS?

  • Yes! We think in 5th-7th grade it is perfectly fine to participate in both. As players get older, it begins to be more difficult to do both the year round SAS team and play indoor club.
