with Matt Ulmer, University of Oregon Court and Women's Sand Volleyball Assistant Coach;
former Long Beach State Women's Sand Volleyball Head Coach, 2013 National Champions

Although sand volleyball and indoor volleyball come from the same sport, they are different enough to frustrate even the most skilled player. Making a smooth transition from the court to sand requires knowing what parts of the game to focus on in order to improve quickly.

In this dynamic presentation, Matt Ulmer uses individual and team drills to demonstrate how he trained the players in the indoor program at Long Beach State to win at the highest levels of collegiate sand volleyball.

Starting with warm-up drills, Coach Ulmer covers the differences in indoor and outdoor techniques. He explains why the techniques for the sand game are different and shares tips to get your athletes to implement changes in their game. You'll learn outdoor serving strategies that make running an effective offense difficult on your opponents. You'll see how to build a sand defense around blocking strategies that adjust to the opponent's offensive options.

The presentation includes a demonstration of team drills that allow athletes to use the individual skills they've worked on in game-like play. Train your players to communicate effectively to ensure that the team is coordinated in every facet of the game. Throughout the presentation, Ulmer constantly mixes drills and technique with discussions about strategy, which is a significant part of a successful sand game.

The video closes with a Q&A session on team composition, defensive positioning and Coach Ulmer's experience in learning the sand game.
