Siesta Key to Host USA National Beach Tour Championships

The USA National Beach Tour Championships is set to take place on Siesta Key, Florida from July 19-24. This highly anticipated event will showcase over 400 boys’ and girls’ teams from all over the country, with participants ranging in age from 10 to 18.

The road to the USA National Beach Tour Championships begins in February with a series of qualification events. The top four pairs in each division from Beach National Qualifiers (BNQ) and a select number of bid winners from the Beach Regional Qualifiers (BRQ) will secure their spots in the national championships. BNQ winners will earn bids to the National Open Division, while designated BRQ events in each region will earn Regional Division bids.

The competition will be divided into different age groups and genders. The 12U and 16U age groups will compete from July 19-21, with titles up for grabs in the National Open, Region, and Patriot Divisions. The 14U and 18U age groups will take the stage from July 22-24, competing for Open, Region, and Patriot Division titles.

To qualify for the championships, each team must have at least one player who has earned a bid in the National Open or Regional Division. However, a Patriot Division has also been established to allow participants who have not earned a bid to compete at the national level.

Siesta Key previously hosted the 2017 USA Junior Beach Tour Championships, which has now transformed into the USA National Beach Tour. The success of last year’s event, despite various weather-related challenges, has led to Siesta Key being chosen as the host once again.

“We are honored to bring this event back to Siesta Key,” said Mark Paaluhi, USA Volleyball Manager of Beach Events. “Siesta Key is renowned for its breathtaking beaches and provides an amazing backdrop for beach volleyball. We are excited to welcome nearly 450 beach pairs from across the country to this spectacular location.”

Visit Sarasota County President Virginia Haley expressed her enthusiasm for hosting the event again, stating, “We are excited to have the USA National Beach Tour Championships return to Siesta Key Beach in 2018.
