There have been lots of social media challenges. This one is different. Jeremy CaseBeer filled his bucket with trash from the sand and put it in a proper trash can. This is something everyone can do, and it will help save our environment, and it only takes 5 minutes! Why isn’t everyone doing this? Check out BVNE this weekend and see our results!

On February 2nd under driving rain and under 1,300 square feet of tents the Kauai Bikini Tournament brought serious competitors to Santa Monica California from states and provinces from coast to coast. First, an important thank you to the dad/coach who helped protect our tents from being flooded out. Not everyone helps out especially when no one is there to see it or say thank you. Then you let us know what was happening and never even took credit for how much work you did. We were able to have a great and uninterrupted event for the players to shine through the rain because of your help. Next, another important thank you to Steven Ascher from King & Queen of the beach® for bringing a huge supply of tents to help players, parents, and coaches on a rainy weekend. Thank you both from BVNE™.
The day actually started with the college coaches clinic with players checking in at 6:45 am in the rain. This was an epic rain and didn’t slow down the toughest upcoming players in beach volleyball. The BVNE College Coaches Clinic brought together Anna Collier Head Coach from USC, Jenny Johnson Jordan from UCLA, John Daze from Pepperdine, Mike Campbell from Long Beach State, Zane McFarlane from LMU with small groups of players on each of their courts.
At 9:30, balls were in the air at the Kauai Bikini Tournament! This wasn’t just rain. Did you hear about what was happening in nearby Malibu? Check it out below. Bad weather for sure! These players showed how well organized they are and the quality family support these players came to the event with. You can’t make it through a rainy day alone, and these players seemed to be very prepared for an event in uncontrollable weather, just like gulf shores a few years ago. We hope you all take those skills with you through college!
At the end of the day the sun came out for a while and the sunset college coaches clinic with USC’s Gustavo Rocha went until about 5:20 pm. Most, maybe all of these players had just spent the day at the Kauai Bikini Tournament in the pounding rain. Even so they still had a great experience with a coach who has been to the championships with USC legend Anna Collier.
The next morning under more rain the BVNE™ College Recruiting Showcase hosted players from 15 states and provinces and collegiate coaches from:
- Cal Berkeley
- UC Davis
- Long Beach State
- South Carolina
- Stephen F Austin University
- Vanguard University
- WestCliff University
- University St Katherines
- California Marymount
- Cal State University Bakersfield
This was a day with calm skies and periods of pounding and loud rain. Players put on their best game with seventeen coaches watching throughout the day. These players earned their wins by staying organized and by planning ahead to stay warm when not playing and taking advantage of the conditions whenever possible. Congratulations to all the winners!
To all the players, parents, and coaches, a big thank you from BVNE. You were traveling from some places where the day before it was thirty degrees below zero. Rain was forecast for the event weekend and you put your trust in BVNE to bring you a great event after your hard work getting to Santa Monica. Everyone weathered the storm and showed college coaches who where in attendance both days that BVNE players come prepared and ready for collegiate level athletics.
Events coming up on the 2nd and 3rd of February will be a weekend to remember. We are bringing together the best and most positive environment for athletes to perform in!
Saturday we start the day with coaches from UCLA, USC, Pepperdine, Long Beach, and LMU all sharing their insight with players at our clinic with check in starting at 6:40 am for a 7 am start.

To a lot of student athletes, especially those in division 1 schools, this is big news. Student-athletes can now seek transfer to another college without the approval of their coaches. To put it another way, coaches can no longer block student athlete transfers. Anything related to NCAA regulations is always difficult to follow given the myriad of regulations that have been created over the years for everyone’s own interests and goals. We’re sure there are a lot of conversations going in in compliance offices, with recruiters, and maybe even college coaches. Give this a careful read before you get started.
New transfer rule eliminates permission-to-contact process
New transfer rule eliminates permission-to-contact process
Beginning in October, Division I student-athletes will have the ability to transfer to a different school and receive a scholarship without asking their current school for permission.
The Endless Summer Volleyball Club started as an indoor club called Team WAVE, which is the parent organization behind BVNE. Since then, Team WAVE has become a beach only club under the new name. After that change, we had equipment sitting unused that needed a new home. When we heard the Fountain Valley High School Barons volleyball program needed equipment, it was a perfect fit to donate our indoor poles and practice balls. We are so happy we could make this donation to Fountain Valley. Good luck on your indoor season!

This Saturday August 11th, 2018 is the start of the fall season of the Juniors Beach Club League! High schools and clubs at all levels come to play, grow and win with BVNE. Our JBCL league has two seasons per year, and places players in divisions by ability. In high school or club volleyball, players at all levels play at the highest level they can. JBCL players work with their club or high school coaches to play in grow in high school divisions 1 through 5, or the 14U, 12U divisions.
What makes the JBCL more than just a tournament series is the starters divisions. This is where coaches and BVNE staff help first time players play in their first tournaments. Coaches can help new players with special coaching rules, the BVNE team helps players learn how to report scores and get to know tournament formats, and everyone is there to help ensure good sportsmanship at the event. Check out our schedule for JBCL events or visit the JBCL website for more details!
This is what growing the game looks like, and BVNE would to thank the King of the Beach® organization for their support again this year!
