Playing with Beach South over the summers helped me in many ways. First, training in the sand increased both my speed and vertical. It was very cool to see how much faster I was once I got back on the court. Beach also helped my volleyball IQ. After playing sand, my shot selection greatly increased while my court awareness was enhanced. I definitely recommend playing beach volleyball for anyone who wishes to increase their athleticism and volleyball game!
