Why Beach Volleyball?
- Improve speed and agility through added resistances of sand
- Shifting sands require muscles to work hard to maintain stability and balance
- Sand provides a lower impact surface, easier on the body
- All around skill development – a beach player has to do it all: block, pass, set and hit
- Less players on the court requires better communication, aggressiveness and responsibility
- Softer sand surface eases the fear of diving
- Increase hand-to-eye coordination and ball control skills by dealing with different outdoor elements including sand, sun, wind and possible rain.
Olympic gold medalist/Women’s National Indoor Team Coach and beach legend Karch Kiraly recommends beach volleyball for indoor players. According to Karch Kiraly: “It’s easier to take your outdoor skills into the gym than to bring your indoor skills outside. Simple reason. Beach volleyball forces you to have all the skills. That’s why I think it’s a good idea for indoor players to play on the beach… Learning those skills can only help improve a player’s indoor performance. All my years playing on the beach as a kid certainly helped my indoor game. If nothing else, a player’s quickness and jump will increased by playing on soft sand.”
