Season Opening June 15th!!

We have an update on our beach season.  We have clearance to open up on Monday, June 15th!!  This is only one week of delay which is fantastic.  I'll need a few days to get all the details and registrations updated.  When registrations are ready, please get registered as soon as possible so I can get the courts staffed appropriately.  

Excited to see our returning players and meet our new players on June 15th.  7 weeks will still give lots of opportunities for growth in the game this summer.  Tans will be good too!

Welcome back!!

6/5 Update!!

Good morning Surface Vballers and families.  I've been waiting to have the most updated information as I can for you regarding our situation for our 2020 season at Drkulas.  

  • We will not be able to start as originally planned on Monday, June 8th.
  • Players signed up for "Early Session" can be folded into "Late Session" tentatively scheduled to start on Monday, July 6th.  
  • Drkulas follows a different set of rules by the state for the restaurant industry.  Although you see restaurants beginning to open up and some schools and other volleyball clubs offering private lessons/small group training, we are required to follow what Drkulas tells us we can do.
  • Our plan is to open on Monday, July 6th and offer a strong, four week program for our returning and new players.  
  • In the next couple of weeks things will be changing and we will be making moves and updates when necessary.
  • Currently all our registrations are closed but will open them up when it looks like it makes sense.

If you have ANY questions or concerns, or would like to get on a wait list, please email me at, and I will do my level best to address them.
