Beach volleyball for junior girls is exploding in popularity due to its popularity in the Olympics and due to the new scholarships being offered at top universities across the US. In its third year as an NCAA emerging sport, it will have 40 schools participation in 2015 and will become an official NCAA sport in 2016. In 2020, the number of schools participating could be beyond 100. Go to www.avca.org to get the complete list of colleges currently competing.
Beach is an amazing cross-training tool for developing strength, speed, agility, and stamina. Beach training can improve the athlete's hitting, defense, communication, strategy, and court awareness.
