Thunder Beach Club was the first USAV Beach program in Seattle, offering the highest level of coaching, a full summer training program, tournament coaching and much more! Our program is led by Jen Baklenko. Growing up on the beaches of LA, the sand game is second nature to Jen, although she continually switched from playing professionally from sand to indoor throughout her career. Jen still competes at the highest level, going all the way to the finals in the OPEN level at Seaside in 2014. She coached UW's beach program for the past 4 years. This will be her 6th season at the helm of Thunder Beach and she is so excited to continue to grow the game and improve the level of sand volleybal in the Puget Sound Region.
Thunder Beach was the first program to offer a year round training program in the Puget Sound. Thunder Beach Elite is for our high level athletes that aspire to play beach volleyball at the collegiate level. College Coaches looking for those athletes, please refer to our Team Page, Thunder Beach Elite.
Thunder Beach is also invited to participate in the BVCA (Beach Volleyball Clubs of America) Championships in Hermosa Beach and we travel to California to compete against the top competition in the nation.
