Why beach volleyball?

If you want to become serious about the sport, beach volleyball will help develop a number of attributes that will propel your game. First, you become a better defensive player because there’s only two of you covering your side of the court. Therefore, you acquire that mentality of going after the ball because no one else can.

Second, it improves balance and agility because the sand constantly shifts. This gives your footwork a boost in order to react accordingly.

Third, beach volleyball can develop your stamina because sand restricts your movement. Your body gets used to it as you continually play and that endurance is crucial especially when you play a five-setter in indoor volleyball.

Fourth, it’s a good workout. Not only is it an exciting sport but it is also helps tone your muscles when you play competitively. Finally, it is a good entry point into volleyball given the abundance of beach fronts in our country. All you need is ample space, a net, a ball, four players, and you are good to go.

Don’t waste this opportunity to learn beach volleyball from your idols. Register for the BVR Sandroots program by clicking here.
