Aloha Ball club is one of the first organized sand club in the North West. We have been around for 14 years. We decided to introduce our indoor club volleyball players to sand volleyball, knowing it would only improve their skills, conditioning, strength, volleyball IQ and overall volleyball game.
Many of our indoor players have benefited greatly from sand volleyball. Gary & I have groomed and coach a Nationally ranked indoor club team from the North West. All of them went on to play at Division 1 schools including, USC, ASU and Uof O. I believe the previous summer's of sand volleyball training played a significant role in our team's success. The girls simply LOVE playing sand volleyball and cant get enough of it! Our daughter Brooke Van Sickle
currently plays indoor and sand volleyball for top ranked University of Hawaii. GO Bows!
