Beach Volleyball Skill Levels

Skill levels

Below you will find a division into levels along with descriptions. When registering for the camp or training, please provide accurate information about your level. We understand that not everyone will fit perfectly into a specific level. Choose the one that best suits you. If you feel that you fall somewhere in between two levels, choose the lower one. Levels are divided by gender due to the different blocking attitudes of women and men.

Women

Recreational

People who have never played volleyball or beach volleyball, or have played very little. Individuals with moderate physical fitness who do not engage in sports regularly. They need to learn the basic techniques of passing and moving around the court. And they have a lot of enthusiasm 🙂

Recreational +

People who have never played volleyball or beach volleyball, or have played very little, but are very physically fit due to experience in other sports and a sporty lifestyle. They need to learn the basic techniques of passing but will not have any conditioning or fitness issues.

B
  • Setting: I set using bump set only; my sets are often imprecise
  • Serving: I serve either underhand or overhand, just trying to get the ball into the court
  • Blocking: we always play without a block
  • Attacking: Sometimes I manage to spike the ball with a one-handed attack, but I can’t aim for specific spots on the court

This group is also suitable for people who play indoors and want to start playing on the sand or have played very little on sand.

BB
  • Setting: I bump set fairly precisely and consistently; sometimes I will handset as well when I have a very good ball
  • Seving: I serve overhand and can target a specific receiver’s area
  • Blocking: we rarely jump to block, only when there is a tall girl among us
  • Attacking: I can attack relatively powerfully from a well-set ball, and sometimes I manage to place the ball where I want
A
  • Setting: I consistently set well bumpset or handset from a fairly good reception, but I find it challenging when my partner’s reception is poor.
  • Serving: I serve aggressively without making mistakes too often, regularly hitting the target area I aim for
  • Blocking: We jump to block as often as we don’t, it all depends on the opponents
  • Atacking: I can execute a difficult-to-defend spike or shot even with less-than-ideal sets; I can attack directions like line and angle
AA

Individuals participating in amateur tournaments, achieving high placements, or competing in national tour tournaments with ambitions of regularly qualifying for the main draw. 

  • Setting: I consistently set with  using bump or very precisely handset, capable of accurately setting the ball even from a poor reception by my partner. I intuitively understand when to set the ball wider/closer/higher/lower.
  • Serving: I serve aggressively with the intention of making points or making it difficult for the opponent to receive the ball, without making mistakes too often.
  • Blocking: we are always ready to jump to block; we only pull of the net when opponent’s set is poor
  • Attacking: I can deliver a powerful spike from a ball set 2 meters from the net; even with sets from the back (e.g., 6 meters off the net), I still have a full range of plays. I can attack in various directions (straight, middle, sharp angle)
