The JVA is pleased to partner once again with the Beach Volleyball Club of America to bring back the 4th Annual BVCA National Club Championship in Hermosa Beach, California. The event will be held July 11-15 and is expected to bring in 50 beach clubs and over 350 teams in age divisions Girls 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U.
“This will be a great recruiting event. Based on last year’s event, we anticipate that there will be sand coaches from 20 colleges in attendance. There was over 100 athletes that are committed who participated in last year’s championship” states BVCA Founder and CEO Jeff Smith.
New this year is the College BVCA Tournament July 14th and 15th. Now that several beach clubs have placed several players into the NCAA, BVCA has decided to have a 2 day 30 team tournament for players in college only. One of the requirements is that both players currently play for a NCAA collegiate beach team. Players on a team can be from different colleges. More information on this event coming soon.
“JVA is excited to continue our partnership with BVCA. We are very serious about promoting excellence in beach training and events for our members; the member clubs of BVCA have been doing so well for many years and are willing to share their experience with the rest of our junior community” shares JVA Executive Director Jenny Hahn.
