|BENEFITS OF SAND VOLLEYBALL|
|1.||Improves vertical jump and foot speed because of the difficulty of moving and jumping out of the sand.|
|2.||Great active rest for joints from indoor volleyball because of the soft surface.|
|3.||With only 4 players on a court compared to 12 players for indoor means at least 3x as many ball contacts compared to indoor practices and games. Playing beach will improve your indoor game faster!|
|4.||It improves your ability to perform under pressure because it is just you and your teammate on the court with no subs, no active coaching during games, and if there’s a weak link the opponent will focus on it.|
|5.||Even though volleyball is still in the name, it’s still very different from indoor and therefore will prevent burn-out from indoor volleyball.
“If they learn how to play well in the sand, they’re going to enjoy the sport of volleyball longer in their life.” – John Dunning, Former Head Coach of Stanford Volleyball
