 SAND

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!

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.
