Beach Program Director
Olympic gold medalist and beach legend Karch Kiraly recommends beach volleyball for indoor players. According to Karch:
“It’s easier to take your outdoor skills in to the gym than to bring your indoor skills outside. Simple reason. Beach volleyball forces you to have all the skills. That’s why I think it’s a good idea for indoor players to play on the beach....Learning those skills can only help improve a player’s indoor performance. All my years playing on the beach as a kid certainly helped my indoor game. If nothing else, a player’s quickness and jump will be increased by playing on soft sand.”
Karch Kiraly, Beach Volleyball, 13-14 (1999).
Now that the NCAA has approved “sand volleyball” as an official collegiate sport, college volleyball coaches increasingly are using beach volleyball training to improve even their indoor players. In fact the vast majority of women’s collegiate “sand volleyball” players also compete on their college indoor teams and their collegiate coaches expressly recognize the benefits that sand volleyball has for their players’ indoor game.
John Cook, head coach of the University of Nebraska Women’s Volleyball Program states:
“We feel there are many advantages to training in the sand and we have gone as far as building an indoor sand court at Nebraska. Not only can [the players] play on the sand, but we can train them there as well.”
