Beach Volleyball National Scene
Thanks to Olympians like April Ross, Misty May, Kerri Walsh, Jen Kessy, Holly McPeek and Elaine Youngs, girls in the USA have been exposed to the beach game since the sport was introduced in Atlanta, 1996. Nationally there are multiple organizations represented in the beach scene, and they host a variety of tournaments throughout the year that are spread out over the entire United States. Because there are multiple organizations, there is no one elite entity compared to another. Some beach clubs will play in tournaments offered by only one organization, while other clubs will play in tournaments offered by all the organizations. It is really dependent on the club and what their goals are for their athletes. Colorado offers opportunities for our junior beach athletes with most of these programs.
