Our Region beach tournament series begins Tuesday, June 9th!

Head on over to our Beach page for more information, including our COVID-19 precautions and safeguards for participation.

AZ Region Junior Beach Program 2020

The Arizona Region is starting its 19th season of Jr. Beach volleyball at Victory Lanes in the west valley. Eight lighted courts with snack bar and amenities make it a prime destination for our program. This season will be under a different set of criteria due to the COVID-19 pandemic upon us, but with your cooperation and diligence, we can make this season both safe and enjoyable for all.

Before you begin the process of registering for the program, please take a moment and read the description and protocols for our program. We are NOT a beach club; we are NOT a private entity. Our program is about lots of free-thinking match play in a fun and optimal learning environment. Please read the following:

Next, please print off the schedule for June and July. These tournaments are age specific and please note that you can always play UP into an age group, but not down. For example, if you are a 14’s team, you can play 14’s and up into the 16’s tournaments, but not ever the 12’s. (If a team is comprised of two different aged athletes, the team will be assigned based on the age of the oldest athlete)

You can find the schedule here:

Finally, before registration, please note the following: With the COVID-19 pandemic still upon us, it is considered risky behavior to be in close proximity to other people, share surfaces and be anywhere that a group of people are occupying, if even for a short time. Please know you as a parent and as an athlete are taking these risks upon yourself to play. The Arizona Region will uphold the COVID-19 protocols and safeguards directed to us by the CDC, USAV and the State of Arizona.

If you are good with all the above, then please register!
