PLEASE NOTE: ANY ENTRIES RECEIVED AFTER THE ENTRY DEADLINE WILL BE PROCESSED, BUT THERE IS NO GUARANTEE OF ENTRY -- WE DO NOT UPDATE THE TEAM LIST AFTER NOON ON FRIDAY.   TEAMS SUBMITTING ENTRIES AFTER THIS TIME WILL HAVE TO PAY A LATE FEE ON-SITE FOR REGISTERING LATE.  WE ALWAYS ENCOURAGE PRE-REGISTRATION -- THERE ARE LIMITED OPENINGS IN EACH TOURNAMENT. 

PRE-REGISTERED TEAMS: CHECK THE "EVENT/TEAM INFORMATION" TAB OF YOUR TOURNAMENT FOR ENTRY CONFIRMATION.

  • Please note, that because of our online registration system, you will be charged upon entry.  This does not guarantee your entry into an event.  Please be sure to check the "EVENT INFO & TEAMS" link for your tournament to check your status and your options if you are placed on the wait list.  If you enter after the deadline (and are charged) and are accepted into the tournament, you will still be responsible for paying the late fee upon check-in.

  • All Events are open entry events.  You do not have to play in every event to participate.  The "Series" is a reward for those that participate in multiple events.  Every tournament has prizes for every age group and sometimes for an upper and lower division, depending on numbers of entries.

  • Be sure to pick up the 2012 edition of our Series tee-shirt the first time you play!  Event shirts will not be given out at the State Games event, but all State Games participants do receive an event shirt.

NORTHWEST VOLLEYBALL

2012 JUNIOR BEACH SERIES

AN INNOVATIVE SERIES EXCLUSIVELY FOR JUNIOR BEACH PLAYERS -- NOW IN ITS FOURTH YEAR!

WHAT IS IT?

A multiple-event series that allows junior (U20) players the opportunity to play beach doubles, collect prizes, and earn points.  Beach volleyball is growing in the Northwest!  Players and their parents are discovering that by playing doubles -- even without coaches -- they are showing significant improvement over the summer because of increased touches.  The side effects (a great tan) are pretty nice also!

 

 

WHEN IS IT?

All Summer!  There are FOUR events in the series.  The last event in August is not a Series event, but it will be the Pacific Northwest Beach Volleyball Championships.  We will also add various FOURS events throughout the summer.

 

POINTS:

Points will be awarded to all participants based on the place they take and the number of teams that are in their age group or division each event for events #1-4.  The individual that has accumulated the most points over the four event series will receive an outdoor volleyball net system! 

 

RAFFLE:

At our Beach Championship Event, you will receive raffle tickets the morning of the event based on the number of Series events you have entered (2 per event, 3 tickets your third event, 4 tickets your fourth event); we will raffle off various volleyball-related items throughout the day.  The more you play throughout the summer, the better chance you have to win raffle prizes at the Championships. Nothing special to do -- we enter you in the raffle and track how many tickets you have earned.  Accumulate as many raffle entries as you can during the summer and we do all the raffle give-aways at the Beach Championships. 

 

BEACH RULES These are the rules that will be in effect at every Jr. beach event.

 

 

The raffle will occur at the Beach Championship Tournament and all teams that participate in the final event will be eligible to win prizes in the raffle.  You must be present at the Beach Championships to win raffle prizes.

USAV MEMBERSHIP/AAU Membership:

All JUNIOR participants in Northwest Volleyball outdoor events (tournaments) must be USAV Members.  If you are not already a member (junior indoors) get your Outdoor Membership HERE

 

The following documents are required at check-in.  We will keep both documents on file throughout the summer, so you only need to turn them in once for NW Volleyball events.

  • PROOF OF MEMBERSHIP (Individual Membership Card): How do you get it? Go to the USAV Membership Login Page and enter your personal Username and Password.  Once you are on your personal page, look to the left column, and click "Print Membership Card" and print that page.  That is your USAV Card.  Print out an extra copy for yourself and keep it with you... just in case.

  • MEDICAL HISTORY AND RELEASE FORM: Yes, the same one you gave to your club or coach at the beginning of the season.  This is information the tournament director must collect in case you get injured at a tournament.  It helps the Tournament Director know what procedures your parents want used to treat your injuries.  It is also medical history for the doctors at the hospital... very important in case you have any allergies.
