Off-season Focus Part 1

Though almost all beach volleyball players hate winter, these frigid months are a prefect time to focus on injury prevention, expanding functional range of motion, and increasing explosive power in the gym. Taking full advantage of the offseason will allow you to excel when you return to the court in the spring.

Some athletes neglect their offseason training regime because of fear of injury, or perhaps they simply lack the knowledge of which exercises will benefit their game the most. However, with informed coaching and proper movement patterns, all athletes can benefit from offseason resistance training.

Tiger Woods is “fixing” the Wrong Things

The best golfer of all time, one of the most dominant athletes in history, is preparing for his next tournament. Five years ago, we would be talking about “tune ups” and by how much he will beat the field. “Tiger or the field?” was a legitimate question asked often by Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon on ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption, the second half of my favorite hour of daily programming on T.V. (shout out to Around The Horn). Now, after years of personal turmoil and professional failure, the more appropriate question is; will Tiger BE in the field on Saturday?

Beaches: Not Just for Relaxing

     Sand training is used by a variety of athletes including, basketball, American football, volleyball, rugby, tennis and, of course, beach volleyball. There are several reasons behind the use of sand training for cross training for specific sports as each sport deals with different forms of athleticism, however, there are many similarities across all sports as well that will be discussed first.

     Similarities across all sports include work threshold, cardiovascular endurance, and muscular endurance pertaining mostly to the lower limbs.

Volleyball: The Defensive Presence - Part 3 of 3

(Cont'd) Maybe you won’t get a dig, but as a defensive player you can’t afford to let the chance at a dig slip away. You have tobelievethat you are going to get every ball, every dig is yours, no matter where it is on the court, that a missed ball is more of an anomaly than actually getting the dig is. Hit the floor for everything and never give up on the ball. All great sports plays happened because someone took a chance somewhere, so always give yourself that chance. You owe it to yourself and to your team to try and make that play.

Reminiscing about Beach Volleyball

Recently I found myself reminiscing about the Atlantic City Beach AVP tournament last September. It was such an awesome experience both from a player and a fan standpoint. Nothing like a pro beach volleyball event at a natural beach to make the summer more enjoyable…I wish more events were produced on natural beaches! The fans tend to know the game of beach volleyball more, they follow the players throughout the season and aren’t shy about interacting with the players, refs and other fans…thanks to the high-touch environment that allows fans to do so in beach volleyball – something unique to the sport.
