Club organizations do not register players for tournaments. Parents are responsible for registering for tournaments and the tournament fees. The teams will be attending tournaments at: Main Beach, Pismo Beach and Monterey.
The tournaments at Main Beach and Pismo Beach are registered for through the CBVA site, cbva.com. There has been a change for the tournaments at Main Beach this year, registration will not open up until 4 weeks and 1 day prior to the event. However, registration for the tournament at Pismo Beach is now open.
Registration for the tournament in Monterey will be through the Monterey Bay Open website, click here for access to that site.
Players may choose to play in any tournament they chose, however, Club Cruz will have our coaches attending the below events to provide coaching to our players. Any lodging and other expenses related to tournaments are the responsibility of the players and their parents.
***IMPORTANT NOTE ON CBVA REGISTRATIONS***
Beach Volleyball has seen substantial growth in the last several years, and securing spots in tournaments has become more difficult. If your daughter is on a beach team register for the Pismo tournament as soon as possible and be prepared to register for the Main Beach tournaments as soon as they open as these are very popular tournaments. If you need to cancel attendance and don’t want to lose your deposit the tournaments at Main Beach require a 72 hour notice and Pismo Beach a 24 hour notice.
The tournament in Monterey is not put on by the CBVA and they have not announced their cancellation policy yet nor are they open for registration.
