The classes we are offering have 3 levels: Beginning/Intermediate, Intermediate and Advanced. All levels are in the recreational category, compiled of folks wanting to learn and play the sand game for fun, conditioning and light competition.
This is the introduction level to sand volleyball for players with 3 years or less playing time and no previous instruction. Basic mechanics are taught in bumping, serve receive, hitting, serving, setting and defense. Leg work is also taught and drilled every class to understand and feel body movement in the sand (there is a technique involved).
3 & 4-man play is the order of the day until players become more adequate at ball control. At that time, they will sample a 2-man game (everybody's goal) in preparation for advancement to the Intermediate class level (2-man play only).
To enter this class level, one must be able to hold their own on a 2-man court. Players will learn basics and advanced mechanics on all aspects of the sand game. Players will also be introduced to the mental side of the game in areas such as anticipation, strategy, focus and mind/body control under game conditions.
This class requires above-average ball control and considerable experience in the 2-man game. Players should be able to make plays on the move and still get the ball back to their partner to complete the play. We will teach more detailed strategy, advanced play mechanics such as balls out of the net, diving techniques and saving broken plays.
