OPU Beach Facility Dedication!

We invite the entire Ocala Power United Family to join us this Sunday, December 2nd at noon as we celebrate and dedicate our beach volleyball courts. Many people contributed to the construction of our first class beach facility and we want to thank them for helping us provide this addition to our already great facility. Additionally we will  be dedicating the courts to Matt Fortin, a life long resident of Ocala, who was an avid beach volleyball player and supporter of the sport. Food and drinks will be served following the dedication, please RSVP to


Prior to the dedication, there will be a 3 hour beach volleyball clinic coached by UCLA beach volleyball coach Stein Metzger. Metzger brings to Ocala a wealth of volleyball knowledge having played indoor volleyball for UCLA from 1993-1996 when they won three national championships.  After switching to beach volleyball, he played on the AVP tour and earned a spot on the US Olympic team where he and his partner placed 5th.  In 2013, he returned to his Alma Mater to coach their women’s beach volleyball team. Besides coaching at UCLA, he has trained US, French and Israeli beach teams and works with the USA Volleyball Elite Development Program. There is still space available for the 9 am clinic, you may register at
