At BVNE, we operate local, regional, and national events every year. The players who attend our events come from coast to coast, north and south of the border, from across the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and from South America. With so many tournament series and so many players playing with both mind and body at the highest levels, we recognized it was time to honor those players in the most prestigious way possible.
This is our way of recognizing individual athletes that is purely based on stats, or actual player performance. You don’t need a club to nominate you, you just need to play. All stats are linked and can be used a part of the recruiting process when it comes to getting noticed.
We recently had two players, Emily Sparks and Jacinda Ramirez, who placed 1st in 18U in February 2019 college recruiting event. Then a repeat performance kicking off Feb 2020 GNBV showcase for two back to wins. Although this was in two separate years we would like to Congratulate Emily Sparks and Jacinda Ramirez (now committed at LMU) on achieving the back to back 1st place finishes. Emily has since verbally committed to play Division 1 beach volleyball at Cal State University of Northridge. Playing and continuing to win has gotten Emily noticed!
The Get Noticed Beach Volleyball National College Recruiting Showcase, Kauai Bikini Tournament Series, and the BVNE Club & High School Tournament series are all part of this system. Each series receives separate awards, specifically designed for that event series. Here’s the details of each event series and its awards.
Get Noticed Beach Volleyball
All GNBV events are national events. There are three college recruiting showcases and one national/international championship in July. Awards for these events are for players in the recruiting showcase, 16 and 18’s gold divisions. Players must finish first through third at least twice to be named as BVNE Elite Athletes. Players who haven’t made it to the medal round but finish fifth at least twice are named to the Up and Comers award.
Kauai Bikini Tournament Series
The KB Tournament Series runs three national events per year, one national championship, and several local events every year. Players must finish first through third at least three times to be named as BVNE Elite Athletes. Players who haven’t made it to the medal round but finish fifth at least three times are named to the Up and Comers award.
BVNE Club & High School Series
Our Club & High School Series is open to all players. This series has the most events of our tournaments, and has two championships per year. Players must finish first through third at least four times to be named as BVNE Elite Athletes.
