Beach Volleyball Players Wanted
Volley America has put together a great program for beach volleyball players in Florida. Currently, there are nine volleyball organizations in Florida that are running beach volleyball events as part of the Volley America program.
The Florida Region will host a Regional Championship that will award bids to the Volley America Nationals, held on Oct 24-25 in Clearwater Beach, FL. Florida Regionals will be held on Oct. 3-4 by Sandbox at Cocoa Beach International Palms. Winners of the Menís and Womenís Open, AA, and A divisions at the Florida Regionals will win entry fee and a 2-night-stay in the host hotel for nationals.
Local Florida organizations will award bids to the Florida Regionals at their regularly schedule events. The groups awarding bids include First Coast Volleyball Association in Jacksonville, Sandbox VB in Cocoa Beach, Ocala Beach Volleyball, and Rockstar Promotions in St. Petersburg.
The $30,000 Volley America Beach Grand Prix awards the top 15 players of each division (Men & Women Open, AA, A, B and Coed AA, A & B) cash prizes at the end of the calendar year based on final rankings. Players have the opportunity to win Grand Prix points throughout the year at all Volley America tournaments. Points are based on a playerís tournament results. Every tournament awards points, and they are cumulative. The more events you play in, the more points you earn! Details are online at Grand Prix Details

Volley America would also like to announce a new partnership with CORA Health Services. CORA is a rehabilitation and sports medicine company with multiple locations throughout Florida. CORA has provided sports medicine coverage for several volleyball organizations and events, including the AVP tournament in St. Petersburg in 2013 and 2014. Their team of highly trained staff will be present at Volley America tournaments to assist athletes with both acute injuries and chronic issues to ensure that players are able to compete at top performance.
Volley America and all of our Florida organizations are working together to bring players the best, coordinated program available.
