Program Structure
The program consists of a weekly conditioning clinic (Mondays) and weekly structured tournament series (Tuesdays) over the course of 6-weeks!

Sand Conditioning Clinic Highlights
This is a sand based fitness program, beneficial to anyone who wants an intense, uniquely different workout.  The program is based around movements specific to Beach Volleyball, but will tremendously improve your indoor volleyball game & skills.  Program will include Sideout Drills (two on two specific drills & scrimmages) and Jump/Agility program to increase your quickness and vertical.  Workout consists of stations of activity and rest.  We believe that individual attention is key in the improvement of the athlete, so we keep a low athlete to coach/trainer  ratio.  We look forward to working with you!
Coaching Staff
Coaching will be led by Sandy Matthes.  Sandy Matthes has been playing and/or coaching for the last 25 years.  Sandy trained and traveled internationally on the Professional Beach Volleyball Tours:  EVP, WPVA, AVP, BVA and Olympic Series. 
Additional coaches are current USAV or collegiate volleyball players, coaches, and/or referees. They are all seasoned players of the game and have a true passion for both playing and coaching of the sport. Our coaches have a wide array of teaching techniques and drills that they will use in order to develop the player’s individual skills and teamwork.
