WHAT TO LOOK FOR Why Sand Volleyball

By Tim Maruyama

• What’s New (2) I get asked all the time by perspective families “So why sand volleyball?”. I must
admit this is one of my favorite questions because I get to jump up on my podium
• National Program (3) and share something I’m deeply passionate about.
• Boys School League (4)
So, Why Sand Volleyball?

The rationale is endless, but I will start with just a few of the most important benefits.

Health & Wellness

• You will increase your vertical ~ 2-3 inches in one summer!
• You will protect your knees from overuse injuries caused by jumping up and down
on hardwood floors.

Positions and Play Time
• Indoors you have a few roles that you must master and at times you could spend a
full practice as a setter…. Only setting!!! In the sand you are forced every minute of
every play to be a passer, setter, hitter, blocker, server, and every other skill.
• There are no subs. If you play sand, you are a starter.

And that is only the short answer! I hope that helps give you a glimpse at a few benefits.

Program Updates, Changes & Additions

After our March newsletter came out we received feedback from many of you on what you wanted to see
happen in and around the landscape of volleyball! So here are some updates, changes & additions for you.

We have three locations now supporting both boys and girls.

Main Campus | Downers Grove
West Campus | Winfield
North Campus | Northbrook

Each location has opportunities for 4 th through 12 th grade.

Traditional Program
Previously we had planned this to have more of a league
format to it, but we heard from so many that the scheduling would
be too great a challenge. With that in mind we have transitioned it back to how it was last year with set 90-
minute blocks. To stay consistent with our competitive theme there will be several official and unofficial
competitive elements within the training.

National Program
Previously this was $540 and included the traditional program. We have now changed it to only $200
and only includes Friday training for two hours. This change allows you to just do one day a week to
accommodate for busy schedules but still get the premier training in weekly.

We heard from our boy’s families left and right that they wanted more competitive tournaments to
attend! So, we decided we would host more events!

We hope that these changes help meet the needs of our ever-growing community and as always just reach
out and we would be happy to talk about any other ideas you might have!
