Beach Strength and Conditioning
Beach is more physical due to the shear nature of the sand. Conditioning to develop “sand legs” is important. Beach conditioning will also help strengthen your muscles, increase your endurance, and re-hab your over-used tendons. We will incorporate rolling out, bands, sprints, jumps, and shoulder therapy into the beach conditioning. This will be good for ALL athletes including ones in indoor season. These sessions will be developed by a physical therapist who plays and understands volleyball. Conditioning will be done in the sand at Brahan Springs. 3770 Ivy Avenue. If the real feel temperature is below 35, then we will attempt to meet in a gym.
