2) Expand your college recruiting opportunities with our IMUA Beach Elite team for ages 13-18u age groups. We will separate group pods according to experience and or skill.
Our IMUA Beach Elite is advance beach training and will showcase the best of the best sand athletes to represent Team IMUA in all of the scheduled 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 desire to pursue a collegiate sand career.
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. We will take your consideration on partners for our national participating events, however if we feel that we will need to adjust for the best interests of the club we will make sure to communicate that with both athletes and parents.
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
· 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.
