San Diego Miramar College will soon offer beach volleyball as its seventh intercollegiate sport. The San Diego Community College District Board of Trustees unanimously approved the development and implementation of a women’s beach volleyball program at its October 7, 2021 board meeting.
Given its large base of participation and popularity in the surrounding colleges and high schools, the sport of women’s beach volleyball is one of the fastest growing sports. The California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) currently has 36 college teams competing. Currently, five local community college teams compete in women’s beach volleyball (San Diego Mesa College, San Diego City College, Grossmont College, Palomar College, and MiraCosta College).
San Diego Miramar College currently fields a women’s indoor volleyball team and adding a beach volleyball team will help complete and compliment both programs. The college also offers state-of-the-art facilities and staffing to support an intercollegiate women’s beach volleyball team.
The JETS expect to field a team for the start of the 2023 season. They will play their home matches at the new (under construction) four-court facility located on campus.
