WHY WE ARE S3

We are the Southern Select Sand Volleyball Club, but most of the time we just go by S3.

SOUTHERN – We are located just a bit north of Atlanta, GA.

SELECT – We desire to produce and train a very select and successful group of beach volleyball players.

SAND – We are THE only volleyball club in the state fully dedicated only to the sand game.. The only time you will find our players inside is when the weather won’t allow us to get outside!

HISTORY

Beach volleyball in Atlanta has been on a hot streak for several years. It began with a handful of players and a small, start-up sand volleyball program in NW Atlanta. The program grew quickly, and by year two, the first set of players participated under a year-round club concept, along with a summer program that included over 100 players wanting to learn sand volleyball. S3, under the direction of Bryan Jones, Dave Woolsteen and Kevin McClure, has continued to grow and produce amazing athletes with many of them now competing at the college level.
