Welcome to the BVNE 2021 National Championships
We are excited to announce our National Championship Tournament in Pompano Beach Florida on July 26th and 27th. BVNE bids earned in the 2019/2020 seasons will be honored for 2021. It’s important for bid winners to get signed up early. Earning a bid does not secure your spot in our 2021 National Championships.
We have also added a GNBV College Recruiting Showcase on July 28-29 following the National Championship and NO BID is required. This tournament will fill up fast so secure your spot now. Space is limited as of 1/30/2021 as we still don’t know if this will be a virtual showcase or an in person showcase with D-1 and more colleges in attendance. The dead period is schedule to end April 15th, 2021. As soon as we have published information from the NCAA will be either leave max teams at 32 or open up to more teams.
Below are all the details for the July 26-27, 2021 BVNE National Championship Tournament
What about California? We don’t expect large scale events to return to California for the 2021 season. If for some reason we were able to host an event in California, this event will not change. We will add an additional non-bid tournament that would adhere to new guidelines set fourth by California.
