Attention: gents low = full
It is also possible to join the training if you're not an SVU player. Although SVU players have priority for the open spots.
Keep in touch with your SVU mates
Signing up for the beach training in May means even more quality time with your SVU mates. Who doesn’t want to see their friends more often? Since the competition has ended, everyone has time to train more in May😉. With the indoor season being over at the end of May, keep in touch with your team in the sand in June! Otherwise, you go from multiple times a week at SVU to none, and the summer break is already difficult enough to survive. How fun is it to still be able to train with your team and even with other teams together? This way you even get to know more people at SVU!
Learn an almost totally different sport?
Beach volleyball is a totally different sport compared to indoor volleyball. This means you are able to learn a new sport or at least a different skill set if you are already known with beach volleyball. With learning a new skill, like knuckling, you will be definitely stealing the show at the instuiftrainingen at the end of August. Also, training in May and June will keep you playing volleyball for a bit longer than the normal indoor season. This means you are more than ready for the instuiftrainingen at the beginning of the year.
Train extra hard for the upcoming tournaments
Of course, the tournaments are all about fun, but we are also a bit competitive at SVU. I mean winning equals fun right?! All jokes aside, a bit of extra training would hurt nobody. At the tournaments, you can show everyone (or your SVU crush) what you have learnt at the training so far. Eventually, you might even end up at the top of your poule and win a prize. What is not to like about that?
Summer body like no other!
The season's first training might be the toughest of them all. Why is that, I hear you ask? Well, everything you normally do during the indoor season is 10x as difficult on sandy grounds. From running only three rounds around the court you get easily destroyed. And this doesn’t even include the jumping part…reaching above the net has never been harder. Don’t let this stop you from joining beach volleyball thought! Since it is the best summer body work out there! Not ready for Mimizan yet? After the beach volleyball season, you’ll be the fittest version of yourself. And I can assure you, you’ll get used to the intensity 😊.
What about a fun educational training and afterwards having a nice beer in the sun? Sounds convincing right?
