VolleyOC Adult Classes: Beach Volleyball Dojo 8/19/23 update
First Irvine or Huntington Class is free, then join anytime using the subscription link below!

Play it once, Love it forever.

Whether you're a seasoned veteran or brand new to volleyball, 20 year AVP pro Ed Ratledge and his team of professional instructors can take you to the next level. We always teach in a fun, friendly environment, and whether you make new friends, or bring your own you're sure to get a great workout every session. You'll build confidence with every drill, and have a blast competing against players who are right at your level. Classes are offered year-round on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings, as well as Saturday and Sunday mornings. Typically, each class lasts two hours and includes an hour of drills, followed by an hour of guided play. Most classes are personally instructed by AVP/NCAA Champion Ed Ratledge.

Which level is For Me?
Ed's Beach Dojo teaches techniques relevant to 2-on-2 beach volleyball. Intermediate and above classes are only for players who can already play 2-on-2 with a similar level partner. If you have lots of indoor experience or are already comfortable in a 2-on-2 setting, please join one of our intermediate or advanced classes. If you need to learn a few basics first, our beginner classes take all comers and will move you right along!

Class Locations

Goldenwest College Google Map Link

Goldenwest College is a big place, using the map above is recommended. The courts are near Parking lot "Entrance A" just past the tennis courts, near the aquatics center. Parking is free fall of 2023 and may remain that way due to budget surplus issues in CA. We only meet here Oct.-May.

Irvine Google Map Link

The Irvine location is a little hard to find your first time, using this map link can definitely help! Free Parking.

Huntington (Newland) Google Map Link

Enter the state park at Magnolia and Coast Highway if you want to park inside the State Park, then proceed 1/2mile north to the smokestacks.
Parking: We have Huntington State Beach parking passes that are good for the calendar year. They are available at a very low cost to participants only. Contact Ed to learn how to receive one. If it's your first time, tell the gate attendant you're buying a parking pass directly from Ed and you'll be admitted free.
Irvine parking is free.

Corona Del Mar Google Map Link

Corona Del Mar is administered by the City of Newport Beach and parking there is subject to a short walk down the hill, hourly rates, or an annual pass that you buy from the city. State passes unfortunately don't work here :/ .
