JVA Beach Beginner Series: Training the Approach
Jumping in the sand is difficult enough, adding a volleyball to attack over the net makes the feat a very challenging one for beginner beach players. Wisconsin Juniors shares a three part progression to train their Beach VolleyKids how to jump and attack the ball.
Wisconsin Juniors Beach runs a 6 week VolleyKids program for 2nd through 5th grade boys and girls June 27th through August 3rd. There are two sessions each week for one hour. The program is designed to introduce the skills and concepts used in beach volleyball with an emphasis on training and creating a fun positive sand experience for everyone.
Through a 3 part progression Wisconsin Juniors trains the players to use a two step approach to attack the ball with a jump.
- Footwork: feet in the rings
- Arms back
- Jump with the arm back ready to attack.
