Congratulations to Girls Unite Beach Soccer teams for dominating at the Santa Cruz Beach Soccer Championships June 3-4 weekend! It was an amazing weekend of sand soccer, non-stop motion, laughs, pool partying and beach boardwalk fun.
For weeks before the tournament Girls Unite players formed teams and practiced at Ocean Beach.. learning the unique rules of the game, techniques and strategies unique from field soccer, and enjoying athletic cross-training. They were rewarded with multiple championship medals across age divisions!
Sand soccer training has become a popular way to supplement soccer training and develop advanced technical soccer skills while enjoying time at the beach. Sand soccer training is great for joint and muscle strength and conditioning. It helps players improve overall skill, endurance, control, leg strength and core strength. Girls Unite loves sand soccer and hope to continue using it as a cross-training tool year round.
