Team IMUA has become one of the top beach junior girl's club in all of Northern California.  We are the first and only sand volleyball club to offer both girls and boys in all Northern and Central California.  Overall, our teams have dominated every tournament in the past two years.  We expect tremendous growth for Team IMUA!  Be a part of our IMUA ohana and summer beach extravaganza!


Are you interested in advancing your mental game, physical skills, and overall volleyball I.Q.?  Team IMUA Volleyball will help you with taking your game to another level!

 

The goal of our program is to provide a safe and productive environment that enables volleyball athletes to learn and apply the principles of teamwork, discipline, dedication, and sportsmanship. We facilitate the development of strength and character in every player that participates.


IMUA Beach Volleyball Club offers and excellent avenue in preparing volleyball players for their upcoming indoor fall season.


A study was conducted, during the indoor, and sand volleyball competitions, at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.  Two key findings emerged:

·  Indoor players (non-setters) touched the ball, on average, 17 times during the course of

   one set.

·  Beach/sand players  touched the ball, on average, 44 times during the course of one set.



The difference of weight and size of the outdoor volleyball combined with the elements of Mother Nature with wind and sun will significantly challenge you to improve your ball control. This difference of 2.5 times more touches (for the sand player) serves as an indicator that ball control mastery, on the beach, is achieved at a quicker pace.  It is why playing doubles during the off-season is the single best activity to improve your all around game.





Beach volleyball requires a very different skill level and definitely challenges your fast twitch muscles.  You have to be able to move a lot faster, jump and be strong enough to power a spike from the middle of your side of the court.  It truly is a sport that requires a very astute level of agility and speed.  Our Imua athletes will understand the benefits of beach volleyball training which will aid with the overall volleyball development for the indoor game.





The benefits of training on the beach will improve your overall strength, speed, endurance and agility, which will aid participants in any sport they choose to pursue.


All of our Team IMUA athletes who participated with our summer beach team have shown tremendously improvements both mentally and physically!





Our practices will focus on the fundamentals of volleyball, with emphasis on basic skills like passing, serving, setting and hitting.  Coaches will enforce proper footwork and technique that will set the foundation for a skilled beach volleyball player.  We will incorporate drills, conditioning, jump training as well as fun, competitive simulated tournament matches.
