p1440 hosts its own 3-day elite events in various locations across the country. Depending on the location, p1440 may offer a live stream for college coaches to view the event live or after the fact. Many of these p1440-hosted events serve as qualifiers for the annual p1440 Junior National Championship. The tournament age divisions are 18U, 16U, 14U and 12U, and we pair players who want to participate but don’t have a partner. The tournament portion runs over 2 days with one day of pool play (in a match play format) culminating in double elimination match play brackets on day 2. Some p1440 events offer club divisions for non-elite players, a collegiate format competition on the 3rd day of the event and/or boys divisions.
The elite clinic portion of the event runs for 3 hours on day 1 with no more than 8 girls to a court (1 coach per court) and consists of high-level drilling and competitive play. Court coaches are hand selected by p1440 Juniors Programming Director Rob Long and have many years of experience playing and coaching beach volleyball and running reputable clubs in their home state. We make every effort to assign players a coach other than their club coach and will rotate coaches throughout the clinic when/where possible. Players are sorted by skill level and age and when possible, we will separate girls who attend from the same club/location. Court assignments will be emailed to you the night prior to the event, and if you are concerned about your court assignment, please email us prior to the training at email@example.com or notify the tournament director or your court coach on site if the training is already under way. Under extraordinary circumstances (ie: inclement weather prohibiting court coaches from traveling to the venue), we will communicate the plan of how we will alter the training ahead of time if possible via email or at a parent meeting on site prior to the start of the training. Athletes do NOT need a partner to register, but they MUST be in the 14U-18U age group to participate.
Our p1440 hosted events
p1440 affiliate clubs across the nation host two kinds of events on behalf of p1440: (1) bid qualifiers for the annual p1440 Junior National Championship and (2) p1440 points events. The 2021 Junior National Championship event will take place July 1-3 at Hickory Point Beach in Tavares, FL, and qualifier events typically run in the previous fall and spring leading up to the Championship in summer. p1440 points events give players a chance to increase their points for seeding purposes at our qualifying events and at the Junior National Championship. Boys divisions are offered at select p1440 and affiliate events.
