2015 Carolina Region Junior Beach Tour

What Are You Doing This Summer?

The fifth edition of the Carolina Region Junior Beach Tour is back for 2015!  The Junior Beach Tour was created as a series of Outdoor tournaments specifically for Juniors across the state culminating in a Carolina Region Junior Beach Regional Championships in 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. Contact the tournament hosts about whether players may sign up individually and be paired with another individual.

REGISTRATION INFORMATION:  The Tournament Entry Fee will vary depending on site.  Sites hosted by a local host will have their own registration site and fees but usually no more than $20-$30 unless it is a special event (non-USAV members will have additional fee to become a member-see next paragraph).  Registration information for tournament sites will be posted below on the schedule when finalized.  Players may also register on site the morning of the tournament if the site allows (contact TD in advance) but pre-registration is preferred to help with planning.

USAV MEMBERSHIP IS REQUIRED:  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).  The $15 Summer Membership category (granting full membership for outdoor events held April 1 - September 30, 2015) will be available in the USAV online membership system beginning in mid-March.

RULES:  USA Volleyball outdoor rules will apply. Click here to download a condensed version of Beach Rules being used on the Junior Tour.

TOURNAMENT INFO:  See each Tournament Information/Registration page for start times and other information about the individual tournament.  Each tournament may have different start times depending on their site availabilities.

USA BEACH PLAYER RANKINGS:   We are reporting all our CR Beach Tour Results to USA Volleyball Beach National Ranking System.  See their website to see where you rank nationally!  Choose Junior Rankings and then age group.  Select "Schedule", the CR event you are interested in, and then the Results column link to see the results that were reported for our events.

AGAIN FOR 2015:  Due to growth and popularity of the Junior Beach Tour, we have expanded the number of events on the Tour.  We have split the state into sub-Regions and there will be a tournament series in each Sub-Region as well as some tournaments designated as MAJORS/CHAMPIONSHIPS.  Teams also will need to earn bids to compete at the Carolina Region Junior Beach Regional Championships.  For more information on the bid process and Beach Regionals, go here.

This schedule will only include information on events that are officially part of the 2015 Junior Beach Tour. All other outdoor events that we are sanctioning (including some juniors events) will be on the 2015 Outdoor schedule .
