The Collegiate Beach Volleyball Tour (CBVT) was created to provide year round competition on the beach for college club teams. In the inaugural 2019 season, over 12 different universities competed over five weekends of play.
The CBVT crowned pairs and university champions at Huntington Beach November 2019. UC San Diego Women and UC Santa Barbara Men were the inaugural CBVT University Champions.
In the 2022 tour, the CBVT will expect to have 24 different programs represented in Southern California and 14 represented in Arizona.
Tour Format and Rules of Play
At each tour stop, there will be pool play in the morning followed by a single-elimination playoff bracket.
There will be a pairs champion for the men's and women's division.
Each match is rally scored one set to 28, switching sides every 7 points.
The CBVT will follow all USA Beach, CBVA, and NCAA rules of play.
Do I have to play in all the tournaments to qualify for the league championships?
No, you do not have to play in all the events. You must play in at least two of the events throughout the Fall to qualify for the League Championships in Late November. However, you will earn more points at each event to help receive a higher seeding going into the league championships.
How many teams can we bring from our university?
You can bring as many teams as you want. However, if we are limited on the number of courts and time, we will limit 3 pairs per university.
Do I have to play with the same partner every time?
No, you can change your partner every weekend if you want.
What are the rules on Varsity Players?
For this season, we will not allow current indoor or beach volleyball players to participate in the CBVT. If they are former varsity players, they will be eligible. There is no limit to the number of former varsity players per university for this season, unlike our indoor rules of only having 2 former varsity players.
Prizes, Swag, and Sponsors
The CBVT has awesome sponsors who are providing discounts and prizes for all CBVT members.
