Benefits of Beach/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.

Who Should Athletes use for lessons in Beach/Sand Training?

As the benefits of sand training work to better the athlete's indoor game, the sand game and the indoor game of volleyball are coached (and played) differently.  To maximize the athlete's time, skill, and sessions, players should look for a coach that understands, and has a history with, both indoor volleyball and sand volleyball.  

The 2022 Summer Sand Camps will be led and directed by Club Owner/Director Shane LeCroy and his staff.  Coach Shane LeCroy has an extensive background and knowledge of both volleyball games:
