About Beach Soccer:

Beach Soccer is a fun but exhausting hybrid sport that began in Brazil and is a fast-growing sport world-wide. The soft-sand playing surface leads to a totally different style of play.

The compact pitch allows players to score from anywhere on the sand which translates to high scoring games. Play consists of 5-on-5 play in the sand.

The Santa Barbara Beach Soccer Summer Slam is the perfect summertime sporting event for the South Coast, taking our love of soccer and the beach and putting them together in a match made for Soccer Heaven.
