ABOUT S3 VOLLEYBALL
WE ARE SOUTHERN SELECT SAND VOLLEYBALL CLUB
– most of the time, we just go by S3-
We are located just a bit north of Atlanta, GA.
We desire to produce and train a very select and successful group of beach volleyball players.
We are one of the few volleyball clubs 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!
Our players get to experience a wide variety of events across the USA. They gain exposure to teams from across the country with varied competition styles. In 2018, S3 teams captured two age division championships at the ROX Beach National Championships. This year S3 teams won two age division championships, one in the USAV Beach Championships and one in the AVP First Championships.
At S3, our year-round teams strive to earn bids to at least one of the four national beach tournaments, USAV’s Junior Beach Tour National Championship, AAU’s West Coast Junior Olympic Games, ROX’s National Championship and AVP First National Championships.
S3 won two club versus club championships this past season competing against other clubs from all over the nation. The first win was in Dallas, TX. and the second was right here in Atlanta at Lakepoint Sports Complex in Emerson, Ga.
We are proud and honored that our S3 staff has worked with players who have gone on to play beach volleyball in college. We have helped players get to South Carolina, LSU, Georgia State, Mercer, Florida State, Cal Poly and The University of California, Berkeley.
S3 volleyball’s base of operations is out of Rally’s beach complex in Emerson, GA. With ten pro-regulation sand courts and a 2-level permanent cabana, Rally’s beach complex is truly the premier location for sand volleyball in Georgia. Conveniently located in the Lake Point Sporting Community with easy access to I-75, hotels, and food establishments, Rally has become a great venue for pros, adults, juniors, and college players and tournaments. We are proud that S3 is the first and only affiliate club to call RallyVB @ Lake Point their home!

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.
