COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (March 10, 2022) – USA Volleyball will host its 2022 Beach National Championship on July 26-28 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
The USA Volleyball Beach National Championship is an annual event for female and male players in the age categories 12-and-under, 14U, 16U and 18U. In 2021, more than 400 beach teams competed at the championship in Fort Lauderdale.
The 2022 USA Volleyball Beach National Championship will be the culmination of the 2021-22 USA National Beach Tour, which started in August. Teams earned bids to the National Championship by competing in Beach National Qualifiers and Beach Regional Qualifiers around the country.
Among the players who have competed at the Junior Championship and gone on to play internationally for USA Volleyball are Audrey and Nicole Nourse, who have competed on the FIVB World Tour. Devon Newberry/Lindsey Sparks and Tim Brewster/John Schwengel all played in the Youth Olympic Games after competing in the Beach National Championship.
Registration for the Beach National Championship is now open until July 22 for three divisions of competition: the Open Division, the American Division, and the Patriot Division.
The Open and American Divisions require teams to have earned a bid for that division. The Patriot Division does not require a bid.
Teams that currently do not have a bid are welcome to register in the Patriot Division to secure a spot in the tournament and begin arranging their travel plans. Should a team earn a bid at a Regional or National Qualifier, it can send an email to BeachEvents@usav.org with the bid invitation code and it will be moved into the appropriate division.

USA Volleyball appreciates the support of Visit Fort Lauderdale in bringing this event to Florida.
