Intensity Volleyball Club - Lilburn

What gear is needed?

  • Sunglasses are a must!  Whether it's sunny out or not, these can help keep sand out of your eyes as well.

  • A visor may also be helpful, but is optional (some athletes like to use both a visor and sunglasses)

  • Sunscreen should be considered a high priority - especially on match days where you will be in the sun for eight or more hours. 

  • Plenty of water (most park locations will have water fountains available)

  • Our athletes often wear comfortable athletic shorts or even spandex, along with a tank top or t-shirt.  (keep in mind some tournaments prohibit wearing a sports-bra for your uniform). On match days teams will often try to coordinate, but it's not a requirement at most tournaments.

How does beach volleyball differ from indoor volleyball?

  • Beach volleyballs are softer, lighter and a slightly bigger than indoor balls (and have a different feel when soaking wet - thus, we play in the rain so long as there's no threat of lightning).  

  • Beach volleyball is traditionally played as doubles or 2v2.  Substitutions are not allowed, thus if either team member is unable to continue, the team must forfeit.

  • Court dimensions are 8 meters (as opposed to 9 meters for indoors).

  • Game format is generally best of three sets with the first two played to 21 points (win by 2) and the deciding set played to 15.   Teams switch sides at cumulative points of 7 (21 point sets) or 5 (15 point sets).

  • While coaches are a big part in training, they are not allowed to interact with their athletes during a match, with the exceptions of time-outs or side changes.
  • Open-hand reception from a serve (or freeball) is discouraged.  While it could technically come out clean, it is difficult to accomplish.  In its place, our athletes learn to 'tomahawk' (where both hands are together making one contact on the ball, rather than potentially two).

  • Hand sets must come out clean.  Athletes familiar with indoor setting may recognize beach sets almost appear to be held longer.

  • Athlete position on the court is strategy- or preference-based.  So long as the servers alternate either athlete can play anywhere on the court.

  • No ceiling!  Want to serve a moon ball?  Go right ahead!
