Arizona State University began their Sand Volleyball program in 2014. It officially became an NCAA Championship sport in 2016, as they changed the sport's name to Beach Volleyball. ASU is currently one of nine schools to play Beach Volleyball in the Pac-12 Conference, along with Arizona, California, Stanford, Oregon, UCLA, USC, Utah, and Washington. In their first four seasons, the Arizona State Sun Devils have had three head coaches. Jason Watson led ASU for two seasons from 2014-2015, Jacquelyn Bunker for one season in 2016, and Brad Keenan starting in 2017.

Home matches are hosted at the PERA Club, which is located on 1 E. Continental Dr. Tempe, AZ 85281. The PERA Club (short for Project Employees Recreation Association) is a private country club for employees and families of the Salt River Project, the major water and power utility in Phoenix and surrounding cities. It now holds three volleyball courts after completing major renovations to accommodate the Sun Devil Volleyball team.
