Modified games teach tactics and strategy that are lacking in a closed ‘skill-centered’ or ‘drill-centered’ approach. In the skill centered environment, techniques are often taught in isolation as ‘drills’ do not require athletes to think about the relevance of the skill to a game situation.

Adopting a game centered approach to training may be the best way to develop ‘game smarts’ especially in beach volleyball where the environmental conditions can change from minute to minute and the ability to adjust will have a significant effect on success.
