Stars Volleyball has been running sand and grass volleyball tournaments for about 1 year now. We have a circle of about 30 dedicated players. Some have their CBVA B ratings, a few currently have or have had A ratings and above, but most are currently unrated. Many are unrated not because they are not skilled enough to get a CBVA rating, but because the tournaments are just too far away to compete in.
Our goal is to bring some decently competitive 2 vs 2 volleyball to the Inland Empire including Riverside, Redlands, Moreno Valley, Loma Linda, San Bernardino, Colton, and Ontario, CA. The closest tournaments we are aware of all happen out towards the beaches. At Long Beach, Huntington, or Manhattan Beach. There is no reason why we cannot get a strong competitive level of competition in the Inland Empire.
For us, we are located in Loma Linda, right next to Redlands, and driving out to a CBVA tournament takes about 1 and a half hours. Our Previous tournament, we had players joining us from Beaumont and Murrietta and their drive only took about 20 minutes.
If you are looking for an alternative to driving out to the beach cities every weekend to play in a beach or grass volleyball tournament, please sign up for our mailing list. We are looking to run somewhere from 6 to 10 tournaments this year and we hope to continue growing as the years go on.
Once you add your email, please let your volleyball friends know as well so we can take advantage of the hundreds of quality outdoor volleyball players that are tired of driving so far to play in quality 2 v 2 tournaments.
