K2 will be offering the K2 Elite Beach Program again this summer. This program is for players with beach & indoor club experience and will involve traveling to out of town beach tournaments. The K2 Elite Beach Season is separate to the regular beach season.
Elite beach is for ages 12-18, however we will consider a younger player if they have significant indoor skills. Please contact the coach for more information about age requirements.
Beach volleyball is the single best way to develop overall volleyball skills and all-around players.
Builds quick thinking and problem-solving ability
Overall fitness is improved through vigorous nature of competition
Toughness and grit improve, as well, because of the difficulty of the sport and having to deal with the adverse conditions (sand, sun, wind)
Develops more versatile, all around players because with only two players covering the entire court, all skills must be utilized
The number of touches/reps, in the average beach practice, is much more than in a typical indoor practice
Increases college opportunities, as beach volleyball is the fastest growing sport in NCAA history
The program will be run by Cory Felts current K2 15-1 Elite coach and former professional sand competitor. Cory has played and/or coached indoor and sand volleyball for 30 years. Beach training will focus on your personal development, confidence, strength and agility; all of which you can take back indoors to improve your all-around game.
Reminder: you are paying for sand volleyball training, which is why the fees for the tournaments are not included. No partner is required for training. If you do not have a partner, coach will try to match complementary players, to the best of available options. Coach will assist with partner match ups but getting a partner to play with you in a tournament cannot be guaranteed. It is encouraged for players to try and find/meet a partner on their own during training.
If you have any questions, please
contact Cory directly at 865-300-2705 or [email protected]
It’s easier to take your outdoor skills in to the gym than to bring your indoor skills outside. Simple reason. Beach volleyball forces you to have all the skills. That’s why I think it’s a good idea for indoor players to play on the beach. Learning those skills can only help improve a player’s indoor performance. All my years playing on the beach as a kid certainly helped my indoor game. If nothing else, a player’s quickness and jump will be increased by playing on soft sand.” -3-time Olympic Gold Medalist & current USA Olympic Team Head Coach -Karch Kiraly
