JUNIOR BEACH TRAVEL TEAMS

2021 - 2022 Beach Travel Teams

We are excited to launch the fall/winter Beach Travel Team season in addition to the fall/winter Indoor Club Volleyball season.  We have worked hard to allow our athletes to persue their volleyball passions in both areans and we are excited to see both sides of the volleyball game grow.  

We will continue to add details to this Beach Team page as they become available.  We are hopeful to have all items solidified by mid October.  


ABOUT JUNIOR SAND/BEACH TRAINING

When we evaluated the sand volleyball opportunities for the youth in our area we identified a need: The need for a fun, different and challenging way to grow the player's volleyball skill level on a year round basis ~  in an outdoor atmosphere, all while combining current skill mastery with new training methods AND providing competitive tournament venues ...

In the summer of 2019, we introduced a new volleyball training concept to our indoor programs and launched our Summer Sand Volleyball Training & Beach Travel Team program for Juniors.

This program was (and is) designed to elevate the player's indoor game and overall volleyball IQ by immersing them in the outdoor element of sand volleyball.  Players will learn how to better read their opponents, learn strategies for ball placement and court coverage, work on their endurance and overall volleyball game - all while receiving more individualized coaching (sand games consist of teams of two, not teams of 6+)  and training with their partner and Coach. 


The Benefits of Sand Training

Sand Volleyball Training is unlike any other volleyball training.  Whether or not you or your child plans to play sand doubles, sand training will help refine a player's skills at a much greater pace.  Sand training helps to develop the overall volleyball athlete and not just the positional player.  Players will learn and understand all aspects of the game, therefore increasing their volleyball IQ of the game.  Sand Volleyball trained athletes should expect to refine their muscle memory and explosion as well as visual stimulation that occurs with reading both hitters and servers.  This translates to the player’s indoor game by quickening their reaction times and a better understanding of hitter’s placements for increased defensive positioning.  Additionally, Sand Volleyball Training helps with the player’s agility, footwork, increases their vertical jump and refines the athlete’s ball control.


What to expect with the 2021 - 2022 Beach Travel Teams (Fall/Winter)

Beach/Sand Travel Teams are designed for the player that desires to take their game to the next level perhaps even desires to play in college.  

  • Teams will practice from mid-November 2021 until the end of March 2022.
  • Sand/Beach Teams will be teams of two.  We will assist your player in finding a partner, should they not already have one
