This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, is our season-opening mailbag episode. As always, thank y’all tons for the questions. If you want to ask a question for the pod, drop one in the comments section or send us a DM on Instagram. With the AVP schedule being released the day before we recorded, much of the conversation centered around that, as well as:

  • What are the young guns to keep an eye out for on the AVP this year?
  • Our thoughts on the new AVP League, and what we think of its future
  • Is the direction we’re going with hand-setting good or bad? Should doubles be taken out?
  • How Travis became the new coach for Tri and Chaim Schalk, and how that’s been going

And a whole lot more.

Fun one to start what should be a wild year of beach volleyball!
