Roundtables are one-hour live virtual sessions that bring together various professionals, multi-disciplinary teams, and panelists on a selected topic. They gather around a virtual roundtable to discuss recent changes and to share perspectives from their unique situation or role within supporting beach athletes and the profession of coaching. They are designed for all levels of beach coaches and for interested professionals working in or with beach volleyball. It is hosted by a member moderator and participants can submit questions to the panel. Roundtables are live events and recordings are not available at this time.
