Why Play Beach Volleyball?
If your answer is yes, then Impact on the Beach is for you!!!
Olympic Coach and Gold Medalist Karch Kiraly recommends beach for all players. According to Karch, "It's easier to take your outdoor skills into the gym than bring your indoor skills outside. Simple reason. Beach forces you to have all the skills! That's why I think every player should play beach. Learning those skills will help improve a player's indoor performance."

USA Volleyball's John Kessel recommends beach too. He says, "The beach game is great for improving your indoor skills. Whatever your weaknesses are, you get to work on them every rally. Unlike the 6-person game, you touch the ball in every rally with only two players covering the court. You learn to read and anticipate much better. It teaches you to adapt. Beach requires ball control and skill more than physical giftedness."
John Cook says, "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 to jump higher and move faster."
