We are pleased to offer a Summer Junior Beach Tour in 2011! Our goal is to hold Outdoor tournaments specifically for Juniors across the state culminating in a Carolina Region Junior Beach Regional Championships in late July ("Beach" events can be on sand or grass!) As we build exposure to the Tour, we will offer competition for boys and girls in following age groups if interest (see bottom of page for age definitions): u12; u14; u16; and u18. As we grow, we may go to single age group divisions! Depending on interest, we may offer doubles, triples, quads, or even co-ed competition at individual stops. Players may sign up individually or request teammates.
REGISTRATION INFORMATION: The Tournament Entry Fee will vary depending on site. Carolina Region hosted events will be $10 (which includes a t-shirt!). Sites hosted by a local host will have their own registration site and fees but usually no more than $20 (non-USAV members will have additional fee to become a member-see next paragraph). Players may REGISTER for CR-hosted events in advance by going to the 2011 Junior Beach Tour Registration Page. Please REGISTER before submitting payment. Players may also register on site the morning of the tournament but pre-registration is preferred to help our planning.
Carolina Region/USAV sanctioned events require all participants to be USA Volleyball members (for insurance reasons). Non-USAV members will have opportunity to join on-site for $5 one-event fee or $15 Summer fee (non-members can also join beforehand by following the Online Registration instructions or contacting the Region Office). Current members should bring their USAV membership card (log in to your member account to print) to the tournament as proof of membership (if you played on an indoor team in the Carolina Region this past season, then you are a USAV member and should be in the online system). USA Volleyball outdoor rules will apply.
This schedule will only include information on events that are officially part of the 2011 Junior Beach Tour. All other outdoor events that we are made aware of (including some juniors events) will be on the 2011 Outdoor Schedule.
TOURNAMENT INFO: CR-Hosted Events on May 21, June 4, July 9 (Cancelled!), July 16 and July 30 will start at 9:00 am (check-in at 8:30 am) for all age groups.
