Beach Volleyball is an excellent way to advance general volleyball skill and IQ. Learning to play the game of 2 v. 2 beach volleyball requires players to perform all around skills (serving, passing, setting, defense and offense) all while moving and jumping in the sand! Athletes acquire valuable strength and speed in addition to advanced volleyball skills helping them become a better volleyball player and athlete!.
