IMUA Girls Beach CLub
"An IMUA Summer Training Delight!"

 


NCAA adds Division 1 Sand Volleyball>> Beach Volleyball

Partnering junior beach volleyball tournament [Monterey Beach Open]



Team IMUA has become one of the top beach junior girl's club in all Central and Northern California.  We are the first and only sand volleyball club in all of the Salinas Valley and Monterey Peninsula.  Now with the expansion of the NCAA Women's Beach Volleyball the growth of junior volleyball is on an uprise!  Be a part of our IMUA ohana and summer beach volleyball program.

We have two summer beach programs to select from:

1) IMUA Beach Camp will consist of a month long beach training end of the season competition and the prestigious Monterey Beach Open on July 28 or 29, 2018.  (www.montereybeachopen.com)

2)  Our IMUA Beach Elite Club will showcase the best of the best sand athletes to represent Team IMUA in all of the top junior beach tournaments in Northern and/or Southern California.  This program is not for your average sand athlete, it is designed specifically for experienced sand athletes that are committed, motivated, and desires to pursue a collegiate sand career.   Our IMUA Beach Elite teams are going to be our primary focus at every competition and will have a coach at every competition.  

In order to be considered for the Elite team, it is recommended, but not mandatory that the athlete has won a respected junior beach tournament the previous beach season. However, we will ONLY select teams based upon what our IMUA coaches feel who will best represent IMUA’S finest athletes on the beach!





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 beach 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 challenges your fast twitch muscle fibers. A beach athlete will 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.
