Why Play Beach?

Wasatch Beach Juniors training is designed to enhance any athlete’s level of play and understanding of the game and will consist of beginner to advanced skill levels so every athlete can find a level that is best for them. We designate our courts according to age and skill level. We provide a safe and challenging atmosphere for each and every athlete to learn and grow. Training in the sand will help your athlete increase vertical, speed and agility, and the over all ability to perform.

Sand volleyball is exploding in the U.S. as college programs are offering scholarships to young women and PAC 12 programs are now recruiting for sand. Playing volleyball in the sand offers many advantages to indoor players who want to improve their game. Most people’s first response to playing in the sand is that is increases your vertical, which it does, but to add to the vertical, it also helps your joints. Not only is the sand better for your body, but it also helps to strengthen those joints. In addition, when you play in the sand as a middle you are learning to pass and move faster, libero's and setters are learning how to terminate, and the outsides are improving their shots, ball control, and vertical.”

Regardless of your weaknesses indoor, in the sand, there are only two of you and communication is key. As an athlete, you’ll face your weaknesses head on, improve on your ball control which makes you a better player .. this means when you return indoors, you’ll expand on your digging range with your speed and agility. You will also improve your ability to read players, and predict what will happen in the game. This is one of the most important skills of all. Being able to anticipate an opponents shot will help you in every position indoor and on the sand!
