|Instinct Tiger Sharks Beach Volleyball Program|
The indoor and beach games require many different skills and strategies, and in order to succeed in the beach game, athletes have to seek specialized training from experienced and qualified beach coaches.
Instinct has been offering beach training for the last 6 seasons.
Instinct has had tremendous success in obtaining scholarships for its indoor athletes, and we now want to use our extensive network and great athlete development program to provide our athletes the chance to obtain college scholarships in beach volleyball.We have a partnership with one of the top beach volleyball training programs in the world. Escola de Voleibol do Betinho has been training top athletes since 1999 in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro. They have several programs for different levels of players from beginners to professionals.
Beach volleyball has been growing exponentially and the decision by the NCAA to add it as a scholarship sport will definitely increase the demand for quality training in the next few years. Athletes have used the sport as a way to keep in touch with volleyball during the summer and to develop their all around game. When the AVP filed for bankruptcy a few years ago, many expected to see a slow down in the interest in the sport, but junior athletes and colleges from all over the USA are still very interested in the sport.
Cilene Drewnick, Instinct's Head Volleyball Trainer, goes at least once a year to Brazil to continue to improve our beach volleyball program. We also receive the visit of qualified professional beach instructors from Brazil to train and develop our beach coaching staff.
In 2010, Instinct started a partnership with Olympic Gold medallist, Todd Rogers, to implement a youth beach program nationwide. Todd Rogers came to Dallas in May for the launch of the New Wave Program and also for a clinic for Juniors.
As we do with our indoor program, we have a master training plan for all of our athletes. We have a step by step approach to develop our athletes in all areas necessary to succeed in the sport. We have a qualified coaching staff, great resources and a vast network (check under history) with the top coaches and beach athletes in the world. Come train like the PROs do.
