2019 Tournament Overview

There are a lot of changes happening on the beach this summer and we will be directly involved in hosting events on multiple platforms.

Our final schedule reflects a mix of AVP America, USA Beach, and Inter-Club Beach Events. 

We want to make it clear that while many of the events carry a "qualifier" nature to them, they are all open to anyone at any skill level. There is usually room for at least 12 teams at any age group (and up to 36 in some) so that brings a wide range of skill levels and goals. If you are just getting started on the beach, don't let the "qualifier" nature keep you from entering. Every tournament is it's own opportunity for you (and your partner) to improve on the beach. Play in as many as your schedule allows!


USAV Qualifiers & Nationals

Created in 2018, the USA National Beach Tour is a joint effort between USA Volleyball and the 40 Regions of USA Volleyball for both juniors and adults!

The tour will consist of junior and adult qualifying and non-qualifying events.

Qualifying events will distribute bids to the Junior Championships to be held in July.  Bids are awarded in the National Open Division (at BNQ events) and Regional Open Division (from BRQ events) .

Manhattan Beach, Calif., will host the 2019 USA National Beach Tour - Junior Championships on July 18-23.

Athletes can qualify for the NBT-Junior Championships at 2019 National Beach Qualifiers (BNQs) that will be held around the country. The top four pairs in each division from Beach National Qualifiers and a select number of bid winners from Beach Regional Qualifiers earn spots into the national championship.

Players can register now for 2019 NBT events at nationalbeachtour.com.

There is also a Patriot division for teams that don’t earn a bid, but still want to compete.

Girls’ and boys’ teams in the 12-and-under and 16U divisions will compete July 18-20. Teams in the 14U and 18U divisions will compete July 21-23.

BNQ and BRQ's at Bottega and Willis Tucker:

 

As noted above, players have the opportunity to qualify for USA Junior Beach Nationals through participation in BNQ's and BRQ's. Local athletes will have three opportunities to do so right here at our home beach facility:

NW Juniors Beach Club will host TWO BRQ's which will qualify teams in the National Regional Division at Nationals. Both events, as well as a link to registration are listed above in our schedule:

  • Sunday, May 19
  • Sunday, June 9

Bottega Beach and Willis Tucker Park will also serve as host to the Puget Sound Region's Beach National Qualifier, which will qualify teams for the National Division at Beach Nationals. That tournament will be held June 29 & 30 (2-day tournament). Registration will be handled by the Puget Sound Region.

NW Jrs Beach Series (AVP America Tournaments)

NW Juniors Beach club will resurrect our Junior Beach Series. Every participant will receive a NW Beach Series tank top the first time the play in one of our tournaments. Beyond the National implications of our tournaments, NW Juniors Beach Club will be holding our own series of Beach Tournaments - all that will require AVP Membership. Each tournament in our series will be it's own "event" where players can play for prizes in multiple age groups and divisions. These tournaments are for players of all levels. 

Each tournament will earn participants points and raffle tickets for our Beach Series Finale tournament August 17-18. Our points winners will receive prizes and we will have a raffle to give away several volleyball-related merchandise. Players earn raffle tickets for participation (one per tournament) and for placing in the top two of any division (the higher the level, the more the raffle tickets). But everyone who participates throughout the summer is eligible for prizes. Don't miss out on the fun!

  1. May 24 & 27 at Bottega Beaching
  2. June 8 at Bottega Beach
  3. June 15 at Bottega Beach & Willis Tucker Park 
  4. July 6 & 7 at Bottega Beach & Willis Tucker Park
  5. July 20-21 at Bottega Beach
  6. (Finale) August 17-18 at Bottega Beach

All tournaments will be part of the AVP America Series, so they will need an AVP Membership to participate. Each event will  earn points toward AVP First Nationals, which will be held July 23-28 at Hermosa Beach, CA. [More INFO on the AVP First Tour

Queen of the Beach

There have been a lot of questions and parents on the fence about entering their daughter in the Queen of the Beach tournament. Here are a few answers so you will understand why you DO WANT to enter your daughter in this tournament:

  • Yes, you enter as an individual. Not with your partner.
  • We are trying to determine the one (1) Queen of the Beach, not a Team of the Beach :) that's what the doubles tournaments are for!
  • In this format you are paired with other individuals in a pool and play with & against each of the players in your pool. At the end of the pool the top two individuals move up, the bottom two move down. Then we play a new pool.
  • Top individual from the Gold Pool is Queen of the Beach
  • It's a great, FUN format that gives the players a lot of play (9 total games each for EVERYONE in our July tournament).

The top player is named Queen of the Beach because somewhere along they way they might have to: Play right or left side; make a weak player stronger; figure out how to beat a better player on the other side of the net with their partner that they have never played with; Adjust, think, problem-solve, win.

Tournament Locations

This year we are lucky enough to be able to use both Willis Tucker Park AND Bottega to run tournaments.   That means extra courts and extra playing opportunities for juniors and adults as we run our series. 

Tournaments may be held at two locations, with location rotating between age groups.

We are very excited to have this flexibility and the opportunity to better the beach experience for everyone in the community!
