Juniors Beach Volleyball

The Beach Volleyball Experience

You’ll have to look hard to find a bench on a beach volleyball court. In juniors beach volleyball there’s not an outside, middle, or defensive specialist — just you and your partner to cover the entire court. A coach does not determine playing time. There is no specializing or substitutions. Each player must master passing, setting, and hitting to be successful.

  • Beach volleyball provides advancement of your indoor game, as well as, collegiate scholarship opportunities. As one of the fastest growing collegiate sports, there were 99 beach volleyball teams last year. Of the 99, 55 schools were NCAA I and 11 were NCAA II. Both offer beach volleyball scholarships — a NCAA National Championship sport. 

    Training and playing beach volleyball is recommended by some of the top organizations, coaches, and volleyball professionals across the country:

    “The beach game is GREAT for improving your indoors kills/game. Whatever your weaknesses are, you get to work on them a ton. Unlike the 6-person game, you touch the ball in every rally, and with just two of you covering the court, you learn to read and anticipate much better. Dealing with the sun and wind helps you be more adaptable. Player height is less important outdoors – ball control and skill is more important. . . . Most top level coaches encourage their players to play as much as they can on the beach . . . .”
