Is an excellent means for players to improve all around volleyball skills. Playing 2 person beach volleyball demands each player learn to execute every aspect of the game: serve, pass, set, attack, block and dig. Beach volleyball is now an NCAA sport with over 100 universities around the country offering programs, many of which also offer beach volleyball scholarships. WEST coaches are accomplished NCAA beach athletes, current FIVB beach athletes, and current and former AVP professionals. What better way to learn and improve beach skills, than from coaches who have achieved the highest level of success in the sand.
It's no secret that a few months of volleyball in the sand has a major impact on the development of indoor skills. WEST will be hosting this program to give our athletes an advantage many clubs across the country do not have and offer exposure into the new NCAA Championship sport of Sand Volleyball.
WEST BEACH TEAM will be divided into relative age groups/skill for all practices. WEST Beach Team will focus on Beach Volleyball fundamentals and competitive play. Teams and coaches will travel to local beach competitions and compete as a team in each age division. Athletes are not required to sign up with a partner. Coaches will pair athletes for tournaments based on availability and compatibility-
