Participants have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of beach volleyball from the greatest player to ever take the court
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 18, 2011
Misty May-Treanor, the most successful female athlete in US history, is set to host a one day beach volleyball clinic at San Diego’s South Mission Beach on Sunday, March 27th. Indoor and outdoor athletes alike have the opportunity to learn the game from May-Treanor, who is actively seeking her third Olympic gold medal.
The Volleyball Clinic is open to participants of all ages 10 to adult, male or female. The clinic provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to be coached by the best beach volleyball player of all time. A portion of the proceeds will go to Equal Footing Foundation, a non-profit organization devoted to providing opportunities for underprivileged children in San Diego through sports. http://www.EqualFootingFoundation.org
Misty brings with her an elite group of M2 coaches to assist in teaching the game of beach volleyball from proper fundamentals through game strategy. Players will be placed into boys, girls, mens, and womens divisions. Misty will begin by explaining and teaching all aspects of the game from serving, passing, setting, hitting, to blocking and defense. All players will then participate in a series of high performance drills with Misty and her coaches, allowing everyone the opportunity to gain feedback and coaching.
The all day clinic is comprised of two 2.5 hour-long sessions that build upon each other. Session 1 runs from 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM followed by Session 2 from 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM. You have the option of signing up for either Session 1 or both sessions. Because Session 2 builds upon what is learned in Session 1 it is not possible to participate in merely Session 2 alone. The majority of players will choose to do both sessions not only to maximize time with Misty and some of the best coaches around today, but also to learn the fundamentals and the strategy behind the game.
Cost is only $99 for Session 1 or $149 for both Sessions and includes a team t-shirt as well as an opportunity for pictures and/or autographs with Misty after Session 2. Those attending the clinic should plan on bringing plenty of water, a towel, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a lunch for those participating in both sessions.
Misty May-Treanor has teamed up with Club Beach Dig founder Cindy Phillips to bring this clinic to the San Diego area. With locations in California, Florida, Minnesota, and North Carolina, Club Beach Dig is the nation’s largest juniors beach volleyball club. The first recipients in the US to receive scholarships for Beach Volleyball at the collegiate level claim Club Beach Dig as their club and starting point in the sport. All coaches are elite players who also coach for the club during the summers in addition to competing.
With 109 AVP and FIVB titles and two Olympic gold medals under her belt, Misty May-Treanor is the most successful and winningest female athlete in US history. Players have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of beach volleyball from the greatest player to ever take the court. Spots are limited, so make sure to sign up before registration closes.
