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.
