All coaches will need to check in. Coaches need to be registered members of a region of USA Volleyball, with a current background screen and IMPACT certification. Coaches also need to know the very restrictive beach volleyball rules on coaching. All registered coaches will need to check in to receive a wristband that will allow them to approach the courts.
Spectators: All spectators will be limited to the deck area and behind the fences at volleyball beach. Spectators will not be allowed around the courts.
Tents: Spectators will be allowed to bring tents, but the only area that tents can be set up is on the court North of the deck at Volleyball Beach. We will not be using that court for competition. No tents are to be set up on the deck area.
Formats for each division: All match times are estimates. Warm ups for the next match start as soon as the court is available. We estimate about 45 minutes per match, but some matches will go quicker than that.

Boys 14’s Division:
All matches played in the tournament will be best 2 out of 3 sets unless otherwise noted.
