This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, is our semi-monthly, always-popular edition of our mailbag, where we take your fan questions and answer them alongside UCLA’s finest, and now one of USA Volleyball’s brightest, Savvy Simo. We’re calling this the season-ending mailbag, although that might be a bit of a misnomer, as the season isn’t technically over, with two more AVPs to go, in Huntington Beach and Central Florida. But, the Phoenix Championships have ended, so it’s sort of the end of what we consider the 2022 season. We chatted about quite a bit, including:

  • What are the partnerships looking like for Paris 2024?
  • How was the AVP Phoenix Gold Series Championships?
  • How to maximize your off-season
  • Who surprised us the most this season?
