  More and more players are looking to the sand leagues to improve their skills in the summer months.  After all, well known coaches have been preaching the benefits of it for the last several years like Coach Karch Kiraly:

"It’s easier to take your outdoor skills in to the gym than to bring your indoor skills outside. Simple reason . Beach volleyball forces you to h ave all the skills . That’s why I think it’s a good idea for indoor players to play on the beach . . . . Learning those skills can only help improve a player’s in door performance. All my years playing on the beach as a kid certainly helped my indoor game. If nothing else, a player’s quickness and jump will be increased by playing on soft sand. Karch Kiraly, Beach Volleyball, 13-14 (1999)."
