MVVC is excited to announce our 8th Competitive Beach Volleyball Season! Our program is dedicated to training both boys and girls from ages 12-18 to learn the game and compete in sand tournaments. MVVC will run two to three practices per week in Cupertino. Players will be encouraged to compete through out the summer at CBVA (California Beach Volleyball Association) tournaments.
Why Sand Volleyball:
This is one of the best ways for indoor volleyball players to improve their skills. Doubles provides the best in random, game-like volleyball experiences with a high number of contacts per person. Each player's weaknesses are practiced throughout the game. If you're a bad passer, you get served; if you're a bad setter, you partner is served and you must set. You are forced to become a better player
To extend your range on defense as you are required to cover the entire court.
To develop communication skills with a single partner before moving on to a 6-person system.
To enhance strength and conditioning through increased movement.
To learn equal part in the responsibility of every play with your partner
Whether it's on the beach or grass, 4-on-4 or 2-on-2, outdoor volleyball is a fun and effective way to gain valuable playing experience and to get an edge on other players. Play hard, play often and play outdoors to become a better all-around player. "A lot of indoor players are specialists, but on the beach you need to play all phases well, and you need a lot of ball control." – Karch Kiraly, three-time Olympic Gold Medalist (1984 and 1988 Indoor, 1996 Beach)
