*NEW* Beach League Play

Details

This year brings the debut of our two leagues: one for juniors and one for adults! 100% gameplay; no instruction. 

All beach vball activities will be held at Bachman Sports Complex (570 E Ordnance Rd, Glen Burnie, MD 21060). 

Each week that your team is available to play, just show up to the courts during your assigned night and 2hr+ session time. Once enough players from your team arrive to compete, your team will be given a card with your team name on it. Place that card on the pole, first-come, first-serve. The cards and teams will rotate so that everyone gets to play, normally two games in a row. Points are given for number of games played and won. Total points determine your position in playoffs. This system allows your team to miss a week if needed and not be penalized.

Winners of divisions will receive free registration for another season within one year.
