BVNE Provides Full Event Data

We’ve all been there before. “How did I finish?”, “When do I play next?”, or “what time should we break for lunch”.

BVNE is where YOU, the player, the parent, college coaches, club coaches, recruiters…..EVERYONE, can access everything from pool play schedules, results, reffing assignments, and all playoff details. It’s all public and all accessible to everyone. The answers to those questions are in reach without going to the event desk.

So here’s a pool play sample. The main screen (not shown, but you can view it by clicking here) shows seeding information and who is in your pool. This screen shows the schedule, who is playing, and who is reffing. Times of course are approximate since games will take as long as they take, but it’s available online to everyone.

Then we have playoffs. This is where transparency really kicks in. Who plays who is controlled by the results of pool play. There’s no monkeying with playoffs here, and no guessing when you should warm up and be ready. Times of course are always approximate since games will take as long as they take.

The biggest challenge we still face is when one pool finishes early, and another is not up to done yet. BVNE BracketPal shows EVERYONE when a pool is finished, and when another pool is still unfinished in the same division. The big delay between pool play and playoffs is now clearly identified by what pool is still playing. Since playoffs only take five to ten minutes to create instead of a half hour or more, the wait time is drastically cut.

At Beach Volleyball National Events, we do our best at every event to help make sure our players have the best day we can provide, and make the most of their time on the beach.

All of the samples above are from our actual event, which you can view here:

We couldn’t do this without BracketPal, it’s a game changer!

BVNE comes to the SoCal Beach Center in San Marcos

After so many requests to bring BVNE to San Diego, we finally found a home in the San Diego area! Early in the summer of 2019 we visited the SoCal Beach Center. We met their team and saw their premium beach volleyball courts with entirely new equipment on clean, beautiful, sand. We’re in!!

The SoCal Beach Center is in San Marcos at 1601 San Elijo Road. It’s just inland from Encinitas, and closer than Oceanside and Carlsbad…and a lot closer than Santa Monica! We are bringing the BVNE Club & High School and Kauai Bikini Tournaments to the San Diego area, and can’t wait to see everyone.

Some come play beach volleyball…indoors where the sand won’t burn your feet and it won’t ever rain on your tournament! Our schedule is up!

The first event is September 14th & 15th with the Club & High School Tournament. then on the 28th & 29th the Kauai Bikini Tournament will make it’s first visit! Come play!

July 31st is the Summer BVNE College Recruiting Showcase

This July 31st is the next college recruiting tournament. BVNE, quite simply, is the only premier college recruiting event in the nation. The BVNE formula for events makes sure college coaches can actually find the players they are interested in. Our events also make sure coaches can easily bump into players they haven’t seen before. We offer one of the few, if not only, single day, capacity limited college recruiting events in the nation. That is just one of the key facts that makes BVNE more manageable for players and families, and physically possible for coaches to see who they want to see. Check out our last event below.

Here are just some of the coaches that attended our June 16th, 2019 event. Come see who will be there next! BVNE College recruiting events exist to bring everyone together.

This isn’t all either. BVNE has hosted many more college coaches, but we only have so much time at our events to stop for photos. Coaches are busy people!

What a great day at the Sweat Active Beauty Tournament at Flourish Beach!

What a great looking day in Colorado! @FlourishBeach had a fun tournament with some serious beach volleyball. @SwestCosmetics sponsored the event with prizes for BVNE players! What a great day in Indian Hills Colorado, right outside of downtown Denver! Thank you Flourish Beach and Nate Yang for bringing such a great day to everyone.

You can check out their tournament right here, and see the completed results here.

June 16th 2019 BVNE College Recruiting Showcase

Here at BVNE, we’re a family run business. We have our own college student who has been through the same process, and we do our best to make sure we conduct ourselves to the same expectations we would for our own family. This weekend we saw a lot of players perform well, show independence and responsibility, and fielded a lot of questions about our players. You might have heard “so and so please report to the front desk” announced a few times over the speakers. This is a good thing, and usually meant that a coach needed information about a player, so we called them up to ask the question that was not have been filled out completely on the registration forms.

We would like to thank everyone for placing your trust in us to bring you a quality event. Most of you travelled from far and we hope to see you again before your player’s college career starts. Please consider our clinics and showcases from July to October this year, and our additional events throughout the year. Don’t forget to check out our highlight video at the end of this email!

All our results have been placed on our website so that you can refer to them. All results have also been placed in our ranking system so you can track your progress.

BVNE College Recruiting Showcase Tips

The most important detail about beach volleyball college recruiting tournaments is that they are not all created equally. Each organization operates by their own standards. So do your research…friends & family who may have already been, social media, etc. At BVNE, we started operating college recruiting events in 2014 at the dawn of beach volleyball as an NCAA championship sport. Since then, we have worked every year to provide transparency and an effective venue for players and coaches to come together for beach volleyball recruiting.

We provide coaches with all of the information a coach would need to make the most of their time at our event. We also maintain records of pool play, finals, and searchable overall rankings of over a thousand players just in the last 12 months. We believe we provide the most effectively run beach volleyball college recruiting events anywhere.

Remember, you are not trying to fill a specific skill set on a team. Your goal is to show you can complete in doubles beach volleyball with whole package of skills.

BVNE College Recruiting Showcase Tips – Part 2

Tip #1

Make sure to sign up with all the information for you and your partner. Grad year, coach or professional recruiting contact information, etc. Remember, NCAA division one coaches are not allowed to call players until after a specific date after their sophomore year . They can talk to your coach or recruiter though. Help coaches play by the rules by providing the correct coach or recruiter phone number and email address.

Tip #2

Well before you arrive on event day, make sure to email coaches from schools you are interested in that you will be at BVNE. Due to regulations, many can’t reply to you until after a specific date, see above, so don’t worry if you don’t hear back. On some occasions coaches may even want to talk to your coach or recruiter the day of the event so make sure that person is available by phone.

BVNE College Recruiting Showcase Tips – Part 3

Tip #3

On event day when you arrive at BVNE, be prepared. Have your medical waiver filled out. Write your grad year on one leg, and the first few letters of your last name on the other. If you have a SendRecruits.com number, write that on your arm.

Tip #4

Player and partner must check in at the tournament desk together. With your medical waivers already filled out check in goes very fast, a minute so. Court and pool play assignments, and the court map, will be available at showcase.bvne.org the morning of the event.

Tip #5

College coaches each have their own goals on event day. They usually arrive around 8 am. Most coaches want to see everyone play and will make rounds throughout the event. Some coaches may even make a special trip to follow up on a player they are watching. Coaches will usually blend in as best they can. They want you to play the way you normally do so they will not announce themselves.
