2016 JVA Beach Watch List
As the historical season for the JVA concludes, we are excited to honor 114 female junior beach volleyball players from across the country on the 2016 JVA Beach Watch List. This award recognizes the top female junior beach volleyball players from JVA member clubs in the 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 graduating class who competed in the 16U and 18U divisions.
The number of nominated athletes is nearly double from last year, mirroring the growth of JVA beach clubs. Across 13 states and 26 clubs, the list includes players who have won multiple USAV, AAU, and CBVA Championships.
"The growth of JVA member clubs offering beach programs has been amazing. Our Beach Watch list has almost doubled, with the talent level getting better every year. We are proud to honor the athletes of this year's 2016 JVA Beach Watch List" shares JVA Executive Director Jenny Hahn.
The past few years, the growth in JVA membership has been driven by new junior beach clubs across the country, and their passionate JVA Beach Club Directors. We look forward to growing the game together and helping JVA beach clubs thrive in their respective regions.
