Gulf Coast Region Beach Update
USAV HP Beach National Team Selection
The Gulf Coast Region recently had 9 athletes represent the Region at USAV HP Beach National Team Selection at Dockweiler Beach, California on May 19th and 20th. This was a 2 day, 10 hour invite only training camp with USAV Beach National Team Coaches, where each athlete was placed on the A1, A2 or A3 rosters.
A1 - Nathaniel Arnold and Peyten Young
A2 - Jackson Arnold, Sam Pearish, Madi Daum and Kylie Daum
A3 - Marti Mclaurin, Lauren Quigley and Lily Arnold
Look out for the Gulf Coast Region athletes because we are coming for you California! ALL of the GC Region athletes deserved the opportunity to be invited and compete on this stage. The high character that was represented by the athletes from the GC Region was top of the line. Their gratitude for being there, their hard work, their smiles, new friendships and old friendships, their Spirit of the Game.
Gulf Coast Region Beach HP
The GC Region will NOT be holding HP tryouts for this upcoming season. The National Beach Tour Championships omitted the HP Division in Siesta Key, FL this year and will only be hosting HP National Championships in California in July.
If teams are interested in participating in the HP Championships in California, the Region can send one team, per age division, per gender to participate in a one-day Region HP Championships on July 30th, in Hermosa Beach. Winners of this earn a bid to participate in the HP National Championships on July 31st-August 2nd in Hermosa Beach. Please email the region office if you are interested in applying for one of our bids to HP Championships.
NEW! Gulf Coast Region Beach Select Team
The Gulf Coast Region is developing a Beach Select Team to travel to Siesta Key in July to play in the Patriot Division of the National Beach Tour Championships. This will be a very competitive division due to the limited number of bids awarded through the Tour.
