The JVA is pleased to announce the slate of events that comprise the 2022-2023 BVCA Club Challenge Series powered by the JVA. The fifth year of the series follows the trend of geographic growth and increased opportunity for competition at various levels.
In partnership with the Beach Volleyball Clubs of America, the competitive beach series is designed to emulate the college game, with a club dual format. Every event included in this series is a collaboration of junior beach volleyball clubs that align their ranked teams to compete against one another for the win. Each tournament is required to have match play competition following NCAA beach volleyball rules, which helps clubs develop their athletes for the next level.
“We are excited to see the continued growth of the game, as all of the clubs are growing in number of participants, and new clubs are starting to form everywhere. Jake Gibb, Phil Dalhausser, and John Hyden are some of the top mens professional beach players hanging up their pro career and starting beach clubs. We are expecting to have 30 events with new locations in Tennessee, Washington, and Texas,” said BVCA Founder and JVA Board Member Jeff Smith.
The 2023 BVCA Club Challenge Series features a true National Club Schedule with 3 levels of play (Open, Club, Futures), as well as three Pairs/Individual events that all culminate in the 2023 BVCA National Championships in Hermosa Beach July 14-18th. The BVCA offers a national database of athletes and what club they play for, as well as a national points system and national ranking system for clubs and pairs. The BVCA membership also enforces standards for beach club events across the country and encourages players to be a member of the same club for the duration of the season.
Each event in the BVCA Club Challenge Series is required to have match play competition following NCAA beach volleyball rules with 5-team or 3-team “squads”, as well as a pairs event where all teams must come from the same club. Each event can have up to 3 divisions, allowing clubs and athletes to have matched competition among three divisions: Open, Club, and Futures.
Open (Division 1): Top competing athletes that represent the club. These athletes are likely committed athletes or high level players in that process. Athletes are most likely juniors and seniors (but can be very high level younger athletes).
Club (Division 2): Freshman/sophomore athletes and/or junior/seniors that just are still being developed.
Futures (Division 3): 6th, 7th and 8th graders only.
There is no stay to play policy, and every tournament is open to clubs/teams of any affiliation (AAU, USAV, JVA, other) so all teams are welcome and will be insured. We are expecting additional BVCA Club Challenge events to be added.
