2018 Recommended Tournaments


Comprehensive Tournament List

*These are live documents. Tournaments will be added as we find out about them and will be removed if we learn they’ve been cancelled. Due to the large number of events we’ve listed as “recommended” events, we reserve the right not to attend if we learn there are only a couple teams signed up for any one event! 🙂


As the sport grows, there are a number of opportunities to play and a variety of tours running events in California.  Figuring out what ones to play in requires an understanding of what each offers and how it relates to your goals as an athelte.  The descriptions below are a starting point to help guide you on your way to navigating the growing sport of beach volleyball!

 California Beach Tour Descriptions



WAVE coaches will always be present at Ocean Beach, Coronado and Carlsbad events. Outside of that we will be at the national events later this summer such as the BVCA, AAU Junior Nationals,, AAU Junior Olympics and the CBVA Cal Cup Championships. *Players who are actively participating in our Beach Club will receive the most coaching at these events.

Coaching by a coach or parent can only take place: prior to the start of the set or match, during a player called time-out and after the set is complete. THAT IS IT! Please help us follow these rules while being rad parents who are supportive of the system, applaud good plays and show respect to all. We are a top notch program and you will need to act accordingly in order to participate and associate with WAVE Beach Volleyball.


USAV Beach 2017/2018 Definitions are good for all Southern California Beach Tours.

You can play with anyone you want! We do not pair up athletes at WAVE Beach. We do however offer suggestions and help find partners for those who are looking. We ask that your son or daughter make contact with our staff and that they become the driving force in their partner selection.
