2012 Carolina Region Junior Beach Tour

The second edition of the Carolina Region Junior Beach Tour is back for 2012!  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 giveaway).  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).  Registration information for tournament sites will be posted below on schedule when finalized.  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).

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:  June 30 CR-Run event - Tournament starts at 9 am with checkin at 8:30 am.  All other tournaments, see their Tournament Information/Registration page.

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.
