Meet active friends, and have a boatload of fun in friendly, intimidation free classes designed and taught by the pros.

Joined the 201 classes about a month ago, and it is a blast. Everyone is so welcoming. Coaches are knowlegeable, fun, and inspiring. Coming back to it after 10 years was intimidating but this has been an awesome experience. I am hooked again. Thank you Volleyball Solutions!

Great atmosphere for anyone interested in volleyball. Levels are set up for different experience levels and backgrounds. Coaches are fun and attentive. Great for exercise, socializing, and enjoying a perk of living in Florida. I can’t wait to get back out here next week.

I have had so much fun and had such a great experence with this group of people!! I have played recreationally for years, but never any serious training. The instructors give lots of feedback without making me feel bad about myself. Love seeing everyone progress together.

Beach Volleyball Is More Than Just A Game

When you make the decision to learn beach volleyball – your life will change for the better. We promise. Side effects of learning beach volleyball include…

More Friends

More Friends

When was the last time you had something to do on Friday night that doesn’t involve bad decisions, a bar tab, and a hangover? How different would your life be if you had a crew of awesome, active friends supporting you and encouraging you to be better?

More Fitness

More Fitness

Pop quiz: Beach volleyball burns 576 calories an hour, and 1 pound of fat is equal to 3,500 calories. How many 90-minute beach volleyball classes does it take to burn 1 pound of fat?

Hint: it’s not as many as you think, and better yet it won’t feel like exercise.

More Fun

More Fun

When was the last time you really had fun? You know, the kind of fun that leaves you thinking “Now this is what life is all about”

Each class is set up to get you playing so you leave smiling. PS: Google the benefits of play for adults if you need more proof.

Are Beach Volleyball Classes Right For You?

While our beach volleyball classes accomodate a wide variety of St. Petersburg’s finest, you may find classes especially to your liking if: 

  • You recently moved to St. Pete and are tired of sitting around in your apartment after work, slogging through boring meetup groups or getting piss drunk at Fergs Thursday-Saturday.
  • You’re a desk-jockey who is 1 or 2 “important” meetings away from going full Fight Club on the next mofo who dares to hit you up on Teams. PS: The sublime stress relief that comes from whacking the shit out of a volleyball with other cool people has a way of making even the longest work days bearable. 
  • You’re a cool mom who really could use a break from the 24/7/365 demands of your amazing kids…and a kickass new hobby that can help you melt off the stress…and the pounds. 
  • You’ve been messing around with pickup or rec leagues around the burg and are tired of getting the brakes beaten off of you in every game. Time to write your comeback story. 
  • You’re an ex highschool, college, or masters athlete looking to fill the gaping void of meaning and enjoyment that is life without a competitive sport. You may be shocked how much adding sport back into your life improves your mental health.

PS: Volleyball Solutions has a strict, 100% legally binding no-assholes policy. See the FAQs at the bottom of this page our rubric to see if you qualify as a legal 100% asshole. Okay, now that we’ve got that out of the way…

Yep! As we said before, beach volleyball is a fantastic workout that doesn’t feel like exercise.

You’ll get into shape and melt the pounds off while having fun with your friends. What’s not to like?

Better yet, the game of beach volleyball is a game of skill – not athleticism. If you can think, you can score some points.

If we had to average it out, it’s around 8-10 people per class. We do cap our classes out at 10 students each, so you can get more 1-on-1 attention from your coach. Plus, the small group feel is a lot better for making friends.

However class sizes can vary depending on the time of day and the lesson!
