Train with us and pave your path to the top of the A division.
Volleyball 301: Leveling Up To A
Our Volleyball 301 coaches teach a meticulously formulated curriculum of volleyball skills and IQ points throughout the season. Our classes focus on mastery of beach volleyball competencies and theories that BB players need to progress to the A level. Optional weekly leagues give players dedicated pick up times with athletes at their skill level, all without the hassle of having to find a court or put together a group.
Volleyball 301 is intended for COED players at the top end of the BB level. These are players who regularly finish at or above 5th place in BB tournaments. Think you are in the wrong place? Check out the level before this one Volleyball 201. If you are closer to high level A our course Volleyball 401 is what you are looking for.
Like all of our beach volleyball classes, Volleyball 301 will be high energy, engaging and an active experience that will have you looking forward to getting on the court every week!
We are your every day beach vacation. Helping you unwind and be the fit and adventurous person you are. Take your game to the next level with Volleyball Solutions.
Our St. Petersburg Adult Beach Volleyball Programs
We believe beach volleyball and access to high level coaches is for everyone, not just the pros.
Our tried and proven methods will help any player become comfortable and formidable on the court in welcoming, and social classes!
Our professional coaches know how to get players out of their shells and get everyone on the court laughing and cheering on their peers. (It is an awesome way to make friends for this reason!)
301: How It Works
Unlike the 16 lesson curriculum in 101 and 201, 301’s curriculum can be extended past 16 lessons depending on progression speed. This is because, with any sport, the higher the level, the harder to advance. For some, it may take longer than 16 to advance to the next level, for some less. The 301 curriculum will be more focused on high level skills, strategies, game scenario play, and higher level thinking. There will be classes that focus on particular concepts, like jump serving or hand setting. Our main priorities will include teaching players technique, strategy and safety.
At the 301 level we focus on concepts: serve receive, setting, expanding the offensive toolbox, team defense, & competitive serving.
And of course our coaches are excellent resources for other information including how to get involved in leagues, pick up games and tournaments.
End Of Season Bootcamp
The week after classes finish we will have a Sunday morning bootcamp 9AM-1PM to refresh important concepts before our final week of private sessions, evaluations and graduation! Imagine Sunday Funday plus volleyball!
Private Session Evaluations
During a 25 minute private session, players will be tested on the techniques and knowledge they learned throughout the course to determine if they are ready to move up to Volleyball 401 and move on to advanced play.
At the end of each month, there is an opportunity to advance levels through a tryout with the head coach of the next level. This is to best accommodate students who progress their skills quickly so they are always able to be in their true level. You have to book your tryout with the head coach of the next level.
