The MBsand Method

Why we’re unique.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy at MBsand beach volleyball club is to teach fundamentals correctly in a positive environment that will foster growth and love for beach volleyball. Girls and boys 10-17 yrs-old learn the fundamentals and learn to think for themselves. Our kids strive to not only be the best players they can but to be the best partner as well. We embrace a growth mindset culture within the club, our feedback is directed at the process, our effort, work ethic and determination. We have fun and make life long friends.

Our Methodology

MBsand Beach Volleyball Club’s teaching method is based on principles and keys to learn volleyball fundamentals, defensive and offensive strategies. MBsand centers coaching on correct principles, creating a solid foundation for development. We pay special attention to motor learning, movement and footwork patterns, practice design, management and player motivation.

Lessons Beyond The Sport

MBsand Beach Volleyball Club fosters an environment where players learn to think for themselves and gain confidence. Lessons learned on the sand carry over to real life as our young players develop leadership, patience, perseverance, tolerance, humility, fairness, sportsmanship and teamwork.
