GOLD SERIES AND REGIONAL SERIES EVENTS:

Gold Series Events – These events will typically be higher level competition, larger bid events, and many times athletes from out of town or state will be attending.  Players in these events will typically be more experienced athletes and those who have been playing beach volleyball for several years.  Many of these events will most likely have college committed players in them as well.

Regional Series Events – These events are designed more for our local players, those perhaps with not a lot of beach experience, or newer to volleyball and beach tournaments.  This does not mean more experienced players can not register and participate, but the level of play will be lower than a Gold Series event.  The Regional Series Events are good tournaments for newer players and a good goal would be to win a Regional Series Event or be in the finals before moving up to play in a Gold Series Event.
