(Milwaukee, Wisconsin) The JVA is pleased to announce another record breaking year for the JVA Sponsor Program as 16 beach clubs are named 2020 JVA Beach Sponsor Clubs. In the fifth consecutive year of the JVA Sponsor Program, the 16 beach clubs join the 64 indoor JVA Sponsor Clubs that will be receiving a portion of the $200,000 the JVA is awarding its members this season.

As a member driven and member centered organization, the JVA could not be more thankful to our members for their support.

Growing junior beach volleyball is a primary initiative for the JVA, and we are proud to support these clubs who are invested in their athletes’ experience” states JVA Director of Member Development Lisa Wielebnicki. “The club directors’ top priority is give their athletes the best possible experience, and we are humbled to have them represent our organization. We’d like to extend our gratitude to the club directors and coaches for all you do for the sport.

From its inception in 2006, the JVA has been a member driven association focused on the prosperity of its members, along with the unification of clubs. These guiding principles, as well as junior volleyball specific education and resources, have led to a steady growth in membership from just under 900 clubs in 2016 to nearly 1,300 in 2019. The growth in the number of JVA Beach Sponsor Clubs comes as no surprise, as the JVA has seen a large increase in the number of JVA beach only clubs, as well as indoor clubs starting a beach program. 

The JVA Beach Sponsor Clubs will receive monetary support from the JVA for promoting the JVA brand, supporting the JVA mission, and growing JVA at the regional and national level. Many of the JVA Beach Sponsor Clubs will compete in the BVCA Club Challenge Series powered by the JVA, a series of weekend events where junior beach volleyball clubs align their ranked teams to compete against one another for the win.
