Learn How to Move and Jump in Sand.
When summer is near, many indoor players decide to head outside and try their hand at beach or sand volleyball. But the two sports have some major differences and being a good indoor player does not guarantee that you'll be a good sand player.
The skills are mostly the same, but your ability to move the ball in order to perform those skills has changed significantly.
Even the college standouts and professional volleyball players have a period of adjustment when they move from indoor to outdoor volleyball.
It can take a few weeks to truly get your sand legs, which means to move around and jump more easily in the sand.
When you first start playing on the sand, you will feel slow and heavy. Your normally ample vertical jump will decrease significantly. Every movement is difficult with a constantly changing surface under your feet.
If you're playing doubles, you'll also have to move and jump a lot more than you would on your six person team, so your endurance will likely be tested as well.
One of the most exciting aspects of beach volleyball is the volleyball spike. While it may look easy and effortless when watching the pros, realize that hitting is tough to learn and master.
