In the sand, the bump set in volleyball helps players adapt to their surroundings and use these factors to be able to gain confidence in their playing ability.
One of the beach volleyball setting tips I learned early in my career was the importance of delivering a good bump set in volleyball instead of relying on overhand setting the ball.
As soon as I got my ego out of the way and realized that on the sand using the bump set was not a cop out...
...but was one of the most important volleyball skills that almost all beach players use to control the ball, then I really started enjoying the game and really got better at it.
As I mentioned previously, players transitioning to the sand game from the indoor game, will need to
and other things like
In beach volleyball, when the referee whistles a foul because you "threw the ball" more than likely it happened because your upper body, hands and arms were facing in one direction but you set the ball outside the plane of your body to another direction.
Once you face a particular direction to especially if you're hand setting a ball you are only allowed to set the ball in front of you or in back of you within the plane of your body.
But if you "re-direct" the ball so that it goes outside the plane of your body you have "thrown the ball" which you will be whistled for.
That's one of the popular reasons most professional players prefer bump setting over hand setting the ball during their pool play and playoff games.
Beach players need to develop their leg speed and muscles needed for accurate hand setting and bump setting on the beach.
By developing this leg strength you will be able to anticipate where your teammate is going to pass you the ball... and then you can beat the ball, using your legs to get into a low position and deliver a nice volleyball bump set for your partner to hit.
And you'll have to develop the strength and stamina to be able to do this over and over and over for at least, at a minimum 50 times in a 21 point game.

If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
