There are two divisions - mens and womens. Minimum player age is 16, but skilled players who are under 16 may join with parent permission. This insures the safety of less experienced players. Registration will take place beach side starting at 8:30am the morning of the event. Registration forms are available here.

Games will start at 9:00am. The morning will be dedicated to pool play and the afternoon will see double elimination bracket games for both divisions. The games will be played on 4 courts, pool play games will be rally scoring to 15 (21 cap) and bracket games will pay to 21 (25 cap). Standard FIVB beach volleyball rule apply. 

Entrance fee is $25/player for non members and $20/player members. Hyatt Regency Saipan is sponsoring prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams for both divisions. Optional day use at the Hyatt Club Elan facilities is available for an additional fee of $15/person, which provides access to the Club, a towel, pool and hot tub, tennis courts, locker room and showers, and the Club Elan spa room. Participants only need to let registration officials know that they would like to add this feature to their registration.

Proceeds from this event will cover the costs of organizing the event and then the remaining money will be placed in NMIVA's development fund, which supports youth volleyball programs, teacher/coach training programs, equipment purchases for these programs and donations to schools and assists national teams players with international travel competition expenses.
