This level is for those players who have played in Beach league in the past and have an understanding of the Beach game. The drills for this level require more ball control to give players an advantage over opponents.
Skills Covered in these clinics:
The hitting portion of this session will focus on how to jump out of the sand to attack the ball, the shots needed to be successful, and increasing vision of the court. Setting will focus on set location, height, and ability to set the ball with both platform and hands. Passing will focus on location of the pass, how to pass in the elements, and the best way to set yourself and your partner up for a successful attack.
Blocking will focus on independent hands, how to set up your block, and recognizing when to block and when to drop off to play defense. The defensive portion of this clinic will focus on how to cover the court with two people, their responsibilities with and without a block, and vision drills to make you quicker in defense. Serving will cover how to use the elements to your advantage, jump serving in the sand, and how to take opponents out of their game plan by serving efficiently.
This fun and challenging sport will give you the opportunity to develop your volleyball skills in a different way.

Players will go through drills showing strategy for the first portion of the league to give them opportunities to understand the concepts and movements of the doubles game.

Teams will play as many matches each night as time allows. Coaches will give feedback as play goes to help teams with strategy and mechanics.
