Why Beach Volleyball?
COVID-19 CONSIDERATIONS: We are currently planning for a 2020 Beach Season. We are hopeful that all youth sports will resume in June. Our first tournament will be June 6/7. As of now, the governor has issued a mandate of "No Youth Team Sports" until May 31. We will begin practices on June 1st unless there is changes to that policy. If the season is cancelled-- we will issue refund for the season. Our hope is that we will be able to start mostly on-time and compete in normal tournaments!

Are you looking for a way to take your game to the next level? Become a more complete volleyball players? Develop better ball control? Improve defense? Become faster? Jump Higher? Increase your range? Then Beach Volleyball is for you!
Olympic Head Coach and Gold Medalist Karch Kiraly recommends beach for all players. According to Karch, "It's easier to take your outdoor skills into the gym than bring your indoor skills outside. Simple reason. Beach forces you to have all the skills! That's why I think every player should play beach. Learning those skills will help improve a player's indoor performance."
USA Volleyball's John Kessel recommends beach too. He says, "The beach game is great for improving your indoor skills. Whatever you weaknesses are, you get to work on them every rally. Unlike the 6 person game, you touch the ball in every rally with only two players covering the court. You learn to read and anticipate much better. It teaches you to adapt. Beach requires ball control and skill more than physical giftedness."
John Cook says, " We feel there are many advantages to training in the sand and we have gone as far as building an indoor sand court at Nebraska. No only can the players play on the sand, but we can train them to jump higher and move faster."
Beach is a must for any player looking to become the complete volleyball athlete!
