Junior Tournaments

7/3/2020: Covid19 Update

The governor's order is for five people or less in a training zone (court) and no spectators. There is also a threat of rolling back to Phase1 because of the recent spike in cases. We do not want to contribute to the increase; therefore, we will be enforcing a new policy at our beach tournaments, effective 4th of July Weekend. Any persons that are not able to follow these policies will be asked to leave the facility.

  1. EVERYONE NEEDS TO BRING A MASK TO NW JUNIORS BEACH FACILITY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
  2. Participants will NOT be required to wear masks while playing.

Everyone inside the gates must wear a mask when they are not playing or are not inside their vehicle. Exceptions will be made when eating or drinking.

Your safety is our priority, so no player should attend if they feel sick or have a temperature of 100.4F or higher. Please take your temperature before leaving your house for the tournament. We ask that you read and fully understand our onsite protocols.  See our dedicated page for Covid19 related: https://www.nwvolleyball.com/covid19-related

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!

2020 Queen of the Beach and King of the Beach -- Three Dates!

NW Juniors has included Queen of the Beach and King of the Beach tournaments to our 2020 Beach Schedule. 

Enter these events as an individual. Play several games with and against other individuals.
Phase 2 – limited to 4 players per court – no court mixing – 3 matches total, $15 per person
Phase 3 – more players accepted, court mixing, multiple rounds, $30 per person

We will set limits for each division as we get closer to each tournament.  Play will begin for the Morning wave at 9:00 AM; Play will begin for the Afternoon wave at noon. 

  1. U12-U14 Girls - AM Wave
  2.  U16-18 Girls - PM Wave
  3. Boys any age (may be mixed in with girls if necessary)

Additional Information about Queen or King of the Beach Tournaments:

  • You enter as an individual. Not with your partner.
  • We are trying to determine the one (1) Queen or King 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 player from the Gold Pool is Queen or the King of the Beach
  • It's a great, FUN format that gives the players a lot of play (up to 9 total games each for EVERYONE).
  • We split into separate divisions as we go and give awards in each division, so everyone has a chance to win something!

The top player is named Queen of the Beach or King 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.

2020 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!

2019 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.

2019 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.

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!
