Over the past few years the junior beach scene has exploded in Colorado and continues to grow each year. There are many ways for juniors to get into the game whether they play hard court and want to enhance their indoor game by playing grass 2x2 events or exclusively play 2x2 sand/grass. To keep the growth going VOTR will be running events throughout the year, where we do mostly grass 2x2 events during the summer in Denver as well as Steamboat. The sand 2x2 events during the winter will be at indoor sand facilities including The Princess of the Beach (see below).
• Saturday June 4th
@ Harvard Gulch, 9am start, 8-14 games of grass doubles. www.BeachBashDoubles.com
• Friday July 8th
@ Howelsen Park, Steamboat Springs CO, 8-14 games of grass doubles.
• Saturday July 16th
@ Washington Park, 9am start, 8-14 grass doubles.
Each winter we will be running 3-5 Princess tournaments open to all Junior players. The tournaments are modeled off our Queen of the Beach Winter Series. Players sign up as individuals and play 9 games of beach volleyball with up to 9 different partners. Each Princess of the Beach tournament begins with a 1 hour clinic. Players are then ranked and assigned 4 per net where they play a round robin format (1 game with each player on the net, 3 games per round). After each round, players are re-seeded based on their results and placed in their appropriate divisions. After 3 rounds (9 games) we crown a Champion in each division.
Winter Beach Princess Tournaments are a great way for Juniors Beach players of all levels and ages to improve their game. If you want to test your skills against other Colorado Beach Juniors the Princess Tournament is for you. These tournaments don’t work with your schedule? Sign up for one of our Queen of the Beach Tournaments open to all ages. Come get your feet in the sand this Winter!!
