2018 GAV Beach Club Series
Back for another year, Great American Volleyball is launching another tournament series dedicated to Junior Beach Volleyball Clubs! In an effort to bring junior beach volleyball clubs from the region together and promote friendly competition between them, we have created a tournament series for 2018. This club tournament series structure will also encourage players to join local beach volleyball clubs.
Beach Club Series #1 - 6/16/18 - Long Beach, NY - Register
Beach Club Series #2 - 6/30/18 - Point Pleasant, NJ - Register
Beach Club Series Finale - 7/14/18 - Point Pleasant, NJ - Register
Note: There are regular junior tournaments on the following Sunday of each event for those staying overnight (hosted by GAV + EEVB).
Divisions: (High School divisions are ages 15-18, divisions are determined by the club coach)
High School Girls (Division 1 - Advanced)
High School Girls (Division 2 - Intermediate)
High School Girls (Division 3 - Club)
Events will be pool play followed by single elimination playoffs.
Teams will be seeded based on club coach recommendation and previous event finishes.
Club teams will not be placed in the same pool unless absolutely necessary. For example, if a club has 4 teams in a division with 4 pools, each of the clubs teams will be in a separate pool.
1st and 2nd place teams in each division will win prizes from our sponsors (Spalding Volleyballs, apparel, sandsocks, etc) at every Club Series tournament.
The overall first place club, per tournament, will receive 1 (team of 2) paid trip to Volley America Junior Nationals. Includes: entry fees & hotel stay for 2 nights!
The club team with the most team points, will win the Beach Club Cup and crowned Club Champions! The Beach Club Cup will be engraved with the Club Champions and passed to the winning clubs each year!
Clubs / Coaches:
Clubs may participate in any or all of the events.
Space will be provided for club tents, banners, flags, etc.
Coaching will be allowed (guidelines will be announced).
Players must wear matching tops, preferably with club names.
All players must have Volley America Memberships PRIOR to registering for the tournament.

Teams can sign up themselves or clubs can sign teams up and pay as a group.
There will be two point systems used for the series:
Each team will be awarded points based on their finish.
Each club will earn points at each event based on its teams finishes.
The Beach Club with the highest cumulative point total at the end of the series will be crowned as “Beach Club Champions” and awarded The Beach Club Cup!
We hope your beach club will join us this year! To reserve your club's spot in the series or for any questions please contact Meghan at firstname.lastname@example.org or (732) 778-9684.
