2020 CR Junior Beach Championships

NOTE:  As most events on the 2020 CR Junior Beach Tour were cancelled due to COVID-19, we have also had to cancel the July 11 and 18 CR Junior Beach Tour Championship Events.  Depending on future State Government Executive Orders, we may look at holding Open Championships in August.  Check back for updates.

The tour-ending Carolina Region Junior Beach Tour Championships (CR JBT Championships) will be coming to the Southern Sand Complex in Apex (near Raleigh) on:

  • July 11, 2020 – Open (aka Gold) division bid earners – CANCELLED
  • July 18, 2020 – AA (aka Silver) division bid earners  – CANCELLED

Qualification for Championships:  This is a by-invitation-only event. Teams earn bids to either the Open or AA divisions based on high finishes at a CR JBT event cz-lekarna.com. Anyone signing up that did not earn a bid will be removed. If space is left prior to the Open/Gold division event, extra bids will be offered to teams based on rankings from the 2020 season during the 1-2 weeks before the event.  If space is left prior to the AA/Silver division event, then it may be opened to all non-bid earners on a first-come, first-serve basis. NOTE:  BOTH players on a team must be members of the Carolina Region to be eligible to participate in these Championships.
