JBVL Club Tournament Series 2017

 

The Junior Beach Volleyball League provides intense competition and an alternative to the usual tournament series on the beach. Clubs should sign up for their players and teams. Direct player registration is not allowed.

 

2018 will be our third year of club driven events, our objective is to provide an opportunity for beach volleyball club players to participate in an organized schedule of events during the beach club winter/spring season in a similar manner as indoor teams have.

 

The season will be from January through early June (8 events) – with a separate championship event in June. Tournaments will be held on weekends in Orange and LA counties.

 

Different divisions within the series allow teams of equal strength to compete against one another, as well as move up and down divisions.

 

Events will be pool play followed by single elimination playoffs

  • Teams will be seeded in the beginning of the season (January) based on club recommendation and previous level of play
  • There will be 5 divisions (1-5) for High School aged players
  • There will be 3 divisions for 14u and 12u
  • Events will be subject to reschedule and relocation due to inclement weather
  • There will be no limit to teams per club – unless venue space is limited

 

Divisions and Format:

Division 1 and 2 will be in the same pools, as will 3/4. 5 will be separate.

 

  • Top two teams in pool advance to gold bracket playoff
