2020 Carolina Region Junior Beach Tour

What Are You Doing This Summer? 

The tenth edition of the Carolina Region Junior Beach Tour (CR JBT) is back for 2020!  The CR JBT 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.  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.

NATIONAL TOUR 2020:  Similar to years past, some of the events on the CR JBT do tie-in to the USA National Beach Tour Junior Beach National Championships (BNC) which will be in Huntington Beach, CA July 18-21, 2029.  The USA National Beach Tour features the following:

  • A small set (up to 30 events) of Beach National Qualifiers (BNQs) across the country.  The BNQs offer up to 4 bids per age group per gender to the National Open bid division at the BNC.
  • Each region of USAV can also offer Beach Regional Qualifiers (BRQs) which award bids to the Regional Open bid division at the BNC. A subset of CR JBT events have been designated as BRQs (aka Regional Premier Tour Events).  Each event will offer a bid to BOTH finalist teams in each age division contested. Additionally, the top 4 players within the Carolina Region per age group according to the National Beach Ranking system as of July 1st who do not have a National Open or Regional Open division bid will be offered one to the Regional Open division.

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-$40 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 outdoor 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 would be in the online system).  The $15 Outdoor Membership category (granting full membership for outdoor events held January 1 – September 30, 2020) is available now.

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 availability.

PLAYER RANKINGS & RESULTS:   Results from the Carolina Region Junior Beach Tour are submitted to the USA National Beach Tour system and players are included in their Rankings.

AGAIN FOR 2020:  We have split the state into sub-Regions and there will be a tournament series in each Sub-Region. Teams also will need to earn bids to compete at the Carolina Region Junior Beach Regional Championships (bids will be earned in Open and AA Divisions).  For more information on the bid process at Beach Regionals, go here.

OTHER OUTDOOR EVENTS: This schedule will only include information on events that are officially part of the 2020 Junior Beach Tour. All other outdoor events that we are sanctioning (including juniors events) are on the 2020 Outdoor schedule.
