July 31st is the Summer BVNE College Recruiting Showcase

This July 31st is the next college recruiting tournament. BVNE, quite simply, is the only premier college recruiting event in the nation. The BVNE formula for events makes sure college coaches can actually find the players they are interested in. Our events also make sure coaches can easily bump into players they haven’t seen before. We offer one of the few, if not only, single day, capacity limited college recruiting events in the nation. That is just one of the key facts that makes BVNE more manageable for players and families, and physically possible for coaches to see who they want to see. Check out our last event below.

Here are just some of the coaches that attended our June 16th, 2019 event. Come see who will be there next! BVNE College recruiting events exist to bring everyone together.

This isn’t all either. BVNE has hosted many more college coaches, but we only have so much time at our events to stop for photos. Coaches are busy people!

June 16th 2019 BVNE College Recruiting Showcase

Here at BVNE, we’re a family run business. We have our own college student who has been through the same process, and we do our best to make sure we conduct ourselves to the same expectations we would for our own family. This weekend we saw a lot of players perform well, show independence and responsibility, and fielded a lot of questions about our players. You might have heard “so and so please report to the front desk” announced a few times over the speakers. This is a good thing, and usually meant that a coach needed information about a player, so we called them up to ask the question that was not have been filled out completely on the registration forms.

We would like to thank everyone for placing your trust in us to bring you a quality event. Most of you travelled from far and we hope to see you again before your player’s college career starts. Please consider our clinics and showcases from July to October this year, and our additional events throughout the year. Don’t forget to check out our highlight video at the end of this email!

All our results have been placed on our website so that you can refer to them. All results have also been placed in our ranking system so you can track your progress.

Highlights from this weekend

2019 NCAA Division I Women’s Beach Volleyball Recruiting Calendar Important Dates

We’re heading into summer when most of the college recruiting showcases are scheduled. Many players and parents are new to the recruiting scene, and even for those familiar already it’s a good reminder.

May 1st to 24th is an “evaluation period” for division 1 schools. During this time D1 coaches have limitations on in person contact with players. This is routine and coaches will be following the rules, especially given the current climate. As players, and those who support them, we can help by knowing more about these details. Here are a few resources for you:

Division 1 Recruiting Schedule

Division 2 Recruiting Guide

NCAA 2018-19 Division I and II Recruiting Calendars and Details

NAIA Schools Recruiting Details

NAIA Guide for the College Bound Student

OK, so that’s a lot of information already. Division 2 and NAIA coaches clearly have an easier time with less regulation. The more you know about the recruiting process, the more players will be successful at becoming student athletes in college.

At BVNE, our college recruiting showcases are designed to help players showcase their skills, sportsmanship, and do it in the most professional way possible. Our college recruiting event schedule is located at:


We hope to see you this summer!

Education Department will investigate college admissions scandal

As big as recent events may seem, it does appear isolated to a specific group of people and does not reflect on our beach volleyball community as a whole. At BVNE we do our best to bring transparency and integrity to the sport of beach volleyball. There are many organizations out there who also help maintain integrity in our sport and we’re excited to continue to be a positive part of the beach volleyball community. In case you have’t seen coverage on the story, give these two articles a read.

In an article by Moriah Balingit in the March 13th Washington Post Education Secretary Betsy DeVos advised her plans for this situation. You can read more about it here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/education/2019/03/13/disgraceful-betsy-devos-says-education-department-will-investigate-college-admissions-scandal/?utm_term=.4bc37417cefb

Another article by Hillary Davis and David Carrillo Peñaloza in the Los Angeles Times covered what federal prosecutors found and who was involved. Full details available here: https://www.latimes.com/socal/daily-pilot/news/tn-dpt-me-newport-college-scandal-20190312-story.html

At BVNE, we our best for our customers, both players and coaches. How do we bring transparency to our events? We maintain an online list of international player results from our past events so everyone can see them. Our online records include pool play and playoff results. This helps us do the best we can so that pools are properly arranged by ranking/ability. Our pools are arranged by points by software designed by BracketPal. This software arranges the players in order of ranking, and then we do our best to make sure pools are organized so that players from different clubs or schools play each other using the ranking provided by the software. The software helps remove human manipulation from the process and is visible to everyone, such as in this event from February.

Our online event records can also show year over year player growth, as with this live example, demonstrating players who improve their skills and finish higher as they continue playing, and are doing so in front of collegiate coaches at our college recruiting events.

Each event we do our best to bring everyone the best run events in the nation, and hope to see you there!

New transfer rule eliminates permission-to-contact process

To a lot of student athletes, especially those in division 1 schools, this is big news. Student-athletes can now seek transfer to another college without the approval of their coaches. To put it another way, coaches can no longer block student athlete transfers. Anything related to NCAA regulations is always difficult to follow given the myriad of regulations that have been created over the years to to everyone’s own interests and goals. We’re sure there are a lot of conversations going in in compliance offices, with recruiters, and maybe even college coaches. Give this a careful read before you get started.

Beginning in October, Division I student-athletes will have the ability to transfer to a different school and receive a scholarship without asking their current school for permission.
