It may be chilly outside, but summer is coming and so is the 2023 USA Volleyball Beach National Championship, which will return to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on July 18-23
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (July 17, 2023) – More than 345 junior beach volleyball pairs hit the sand this week for the 2023 USA Volleyball Beach National Championship, July 17-23 in Fort Lauderdale.
There are four age groups – 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U – for both boys and girls, and each will end with a playoff to crown a national champion. Each girls age group is further separated into Open and American divisions. All boys pairs will compete in the Open division.
The tournament takes place at the beach volleyball courts at 1100 Seabreeze Blvd in Fort Lauderdale. It’s the third year the city has hosted the event.
Boys 16U athletes kicked off the tournament on the afternoon of July 17, and continue play through July 20. Girls and Boys 12U and Girls 16U are scheduled for July 18-20, and 14U and 18U athletes compete July 21-23.
The USA Volleyball Beach National Championship is the culminating event of the USA Volleyball Beach Tour, a year-long joint effort between USA Volleyball and the nation’s 40 USAV regions. Open division competitors earned a berth by placing among the top four at Beach National Qualifiers. American division athletes earned their berths at a Beach Regional Qualifier.
USA Volleyball will cover the action on social media, including photos and videos all day long on Instagram at @usavbeach.
