Up Your Team Building Game

Set your team up for success with corporate outings, company events and team building activities meant for play. Courts can be reserved in advance, with games as competitive as your team. “Volleyball is inherently competitive, but it’s also a great way to practice and perfect your communication skills,” said Bettlach. “Plus, who doesn’t love being in the sand and out of the office?”

Get Competitive at a Tournament

Saturdays are game days. For athletes looking for a challenge, tournaments are held year round at Volleyball Beach Ozark. From age to skill level, there’s a way to serve your skills on display, with stands and space for players’ families to watch. “Volleyball is for everyone, and we’re proud that our community is for anyone.”
