The New England BeachfestTM,  Beach Volleyball Tournament

SPIKE UNIVERSITY's first 2v2 Hampton NH beach tournament of the year is The New England BeachfestTM.  For ages 9 through Adult, it's a player's first chance of the season to see where their skills are at because we play a "LADDER" format.  You start in your expected Age group level, then you can go up or down 1 or 2 age group levels depending how you do.  You do not have to be a member of AAU, USAV, NERVA, Maine Juniors or EVP to participate in The New England BeachfestTM !

Theme:  Sports! Boston Strong! Anything related to sports and your favorite sports team!  Help make the tournament look and feel even more awesome!

Format:  Ladder format (e.g. qualifier type).  **This may be NEW to you so please read on!  It's a FANTASTIC format for all players for all reasons!!  Play to 21 all games, win by 2.  Only 4 teams per net.  Each net has a separate skill level starting by date of birth and SpikeU leader board rank.  All nets start with a presumed skill level and there will NOT be any skill level on more than 1 net (so there will only be one U18 gold net, for example).  Each team will play 9 games throughout the day.  The 9 games will be divided into 3 playing cycles, and 2 hours per cycle, so 3 games per cycle. The tournament will start at 9:00am.  If your net finishes before 2 hours (it's possible to have a 30min wait), then happily use that time to relax, enjoy the beach, go to the bathroom (usually a 15min task) or eat.  At the end of the 2 hour cycle, the top 2 teams will move up a net and the bottom 2 teams will move down a net.  If you're bottom in U12 or top in AdultAA you stay on that net.  Cycles will be 9-11am, 11:15am-1:15pm., and 1:30pm-3:30pm.  Tournament directors will be on the courts pre-planning to minimize delay.  Award ceremony and podium stands will occur between 2:45pm (some nets will finish early) and 3:45pm.  There are no playoff's.  Where you end up (1st through 4th) in your net is how you place in the tournament.  There will be GOLD, SILVER and BRONZE nets, so for example, you could start in U16 SILVER and end the day in U18 BRONZE.  The 4th place team does not receive a medal, only 1st 2nd and 3rd do.
