About Shot

Association

In the summer of 2019 D.S.B.V. “Shot” has been founded. Delftse Studenten Beachvolleybal Vereniging “Shot”. D.S.B.V “Shot” will organize training sessions, the Delft Beach Competition (DBC), tournaments, and other (beach volleyball) activities for students in Delft. Shot is originated from D.S.V.V. “Punch”. Therefore, we already have some years experience with offering beach volleyball activities in Delft but from now on we will do so as a separate association. This means we are very ambitious to improve our activities, moreover there is a lot of space for new ideas of our members!

Signing up for Shot is without obligations and suitable for all kinds of beach volleyball players. You can decide yourself whether you want to train the whole year round or for example only in summer. Moreover, groups are divided based on skill level, therefore both beginners and more experienced beach volleyball players are welcome!

Offer

In the upcoming year, we will organize a wide variety of activities. The main part of our activities consists of trainings, which we provide all year round. First a short series of 4 weeks outdoor training. These trainings take place on Thursday evening at the beach fields of X from September 17th till October 8th. Next a series of 10 weeks indoor training. These trainings will take place on Thursday evenings from October 15th till December 17th.

This will be followed by another 10 weeks of indoor training from February 11th till April 15th. Next, we can train outside again! From April 19th till June 25th we have another 10 weeks of outdoor training at the beach fields of X.

In addition to all the trainings, we also organize a competition from May till July. This is in cooperation with 2 other volleyball associations in Delft. Moreover we organize a few tournaments and clinics in which you can participate.

Apart from beach volleyball activities, we will also organize a few different activities. These are meant to get to know your beach partners and other Shot members better!

On the page agenda you can find an overview of the planned activities and when they will take place.

Sandmembership

Because Shot is a new association, the amount of activities apart from the beach volleyball activities will not be very extensive in the upcoming year. However, we understand you want to have some more fun next to playing beach volleyball. To provide this, we introduced the sandmembership at Punch Volleyball. For €30 per year, you can participate in all activities of Punch (except for trainings and the competition). You can then join the member weekend, the gala, parties, and the weekly drink at “het Pand”.

If you are already planning to play volleyball at Punch, this membership is not relevant for you. Moreover, if you only want to play beach volleyball and don’t want to participate in other activities at Punch, this membership is also not relevant for you. If you have questions regarding the sandmembership, or if you want to sign up as sandmember, you should contact the board of Shot, they can explain how this works. To become a sandmember it is mandatory to be a member of Shot and to participate in at least one series of trainings organized by Shot.

* Previous years, the DBC was organized by Punch, Kratos, and Delta. The spots were distributed between these three associations and external participants. From all spots, 45% was for Punch,  22.5% for Kratos, 22.5% for Delta, and 10% for externals. Next year, the DBC will be organized in the same way, but by Shot instead of Punch. This means that 45% of the spots are reserved for members of Shot. Are you only a member of Punch and not of Shot, then you can still sign up for the DBC, however, the chance you can participate will be lower since you will fall into the external category.
