quote by Misty May-Treanor

It takes a lot of hard work and dedication just like any pro sport. Especially for beach volleyball you don't have to be tall or as fast as other sports. You just have to have the skills.

Breathtaking Beach Volleyball quotations

It's hard to give a career like this up, when I tell my wife I'm going to the office, and it's the beach.

Beach volleyball quote A day at the beach restores the soul.
A day at the beach restores the soul.

The indoor game is much more of a team game, having to work effectively with a group of 15 to 20 people, striving to improve every day, every drill, even every contact. The beach game is much more of an individual game within a team sport, much less about organized practices with coaches and much more about just playing the game.

Beach volleyball quote If there is a heaven for me, I'm sure it has a beach attached to it.
If there is a heaven for me, I'm sure it has a beach attached to it.

We play at the world's most beautiful beaches but in the world's most challenging conditions. It is not like you play one match and you go back to air conditioning. We do it all day long.

A mere forty years ago, beach volleyball was just beginning.

No bureaucrat would have invented it, and that's what freedom is all about.


I was fortunate to start the sport at a young age.

I was 6 years old when my dad started teaching me. We started playing tournaments together when I was 11, in the lower ranking of beach volleyball in California. We weren't playing against kids; we played against grown men, so immediately, I had to raise my game to compete.

I was born and raised in Huntington Beach, California.

I was very athletic, playing volleyball and softball. I did gymnastics for about ten years, too.

I grew up on the beach and played side-out scoring all my life, but rally scoring is better for our sport. There is pressure on every play. You can't make a mistake, but that also means your opponent can't make a mistake. It makes the matches more exciting to watch.

I think my best memories are when I go home to California and I get play beach volleyball with my friends from home.

Beach volleyball quote Life's a beach. I am just playing in the sand.
Life's a beach. I am just playing in the sand.

As far as my sport is concerned, my mission is to make it as big as it deserves to be. We've been growing, it's just not as noticeable.

That's a really big deal for our sport because that just means the USA system is going to have a feeder system from the college system.

Well there's only one way to prepare for playing beach volleyball, and that's by getting in the sand. But offseason is really important because generally I'm staying off the sand and getting my feet under me, and it's really important for my body to know what it feels like to have sound footing under me.

I'm a really big surfer, and I have also been playing a ton of volleyball on the beach on the weekends.

The beach game taught me great lessons about how to elevate the play of my teammate, or teammates, and how to anticipate and expect the ball so much more than the indoor game ever could. It taught me - even forced me - to be a much better all-around player. That allowed me to help our USA Olympic Team in many more ways than I ever could have otherwise.


"I guess I'm okay with that. But it's not going to be easy for you. They don't have a lot of fishing or mudding around here." "I figured." "And not a lot of beach volleyball, either. Especially in January." "I guess I'll have to make some sacrifices." "Maybe if you're lucky, we can find you some other ways to occupy your time."
