Today we've got a little transition setting and offensive decision-making drill to help your beach volleyball game.
We're going to show you what we did here on my side of the court. I'm coaching here, we have four zones - two zones in the sharp sidelines, and two zones in the deep corners. This is how I measure it out on the beach volleyball court.
Go to the deep corner of the court and take two giant steps along the sideline towards the net. Now, take one step into the court dragging your foot to make a line in the sand. Face the net again and drag your foot until you get to the volleyball net. You should have a big rectangle on the sideline that starts at the net and goes to about two thirds depth into the court. You should do the same thing on the other sideline. You'll be left with two rectangle zones along the sidelines that are about 20 feet long and 3 feet wide. These are your "sharp sideline" zones.
The deep corner zones should then be about 6 feet by 3 feet or 2...
It's not only the setter's responsibility to put the hitter in a good position. Great attackers put themselves in a position after the pass where it's easy to set them a perfect ball -- and if you'd like the most effective, fastest way to become the best setter on the beach, give our setting course a try!
When you have great footwork, and you religiously create a great distance relationship between yourself, your hitter, and the volleyball net, it becomes more likely that you will score points.
I want you to take special notice, that none of what I...

One of the most underrated difficult elements of improving as a beach volleyball player is pinning down a practice plan. Beach volleyball isn't like basketball, where all you really need to get better is a hoop and a ball. On the beach, you need at least one other person, ideally three, and rare is the time that everyone has the same goals in mind. One team wants to play games while the other wants to rep out...

In beach volleyball, you'll get a lot of weird touches -- one-hand, opposite hand, pokie, tomahawk. You'll get volleyballs crushed at you and you barely have time to respond. It's all about reaction time, and controlling the ball in spite of having very little reaction time.
Which is why we...
This beach volleyball drill is a favorite of Todd Rogers. And if it's a favorite of his, it should be a favorite of yours. He's an Olympic gold medalist. When the man speaks, you listen.
He spoke about this drill at the 2019 AVCA Coaches Convention in Pittsburgh, Pa., telling the crowd...
Yes, the days of sideout beach volleyball, where you can only score when you're the serving team, are mostly over (except during the AVP main draws when the freeze is on). But that doesn't mean that defense in beach volleyball is any less important. The old sporting adage, 'defense wins championships' is as true as it has ever been. There's a reason that Phil Dalhausser and Nick...
