Adult Volunteers Required:
As always....I'm looking for plenty of help to run these events.   You can help in a number of different ways and most of them require little if any knowledge or playing ability.  Please, please let me know if you are interested in helping with any or all of the categories.    Without your help....these events can't take place.
  • Event Director:  OK...so this job does take a little knowledge of the game and some experience with the Beach Blast setup.  You will be expected to show up a little early to get the courts prepared, run the days events including court assignments, bracket setup, prize and awards presentations.
  • Event Host:  No game knowledge or prior experience needed. The Directors will be primarily responsible for snack, drink and awards purchases or creation of Crowns and awards and the collecting the tournament fees for the day to pay for all of the purchases.  Click here for Beach Blast Event Host Guide
  • On-Court Coach:  We will be placing on-court coaches into the 12's division.  These coaches will remain in the setting position and be a ball-control and court educator for the boys.  Moms, Dads, older brothers and sisters with good beach volleyball skills and the desire to help our youngest learn the great sport of beach volleyball are welcome.
