DIG THE BEACH SERIES VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT CELEBRATES 25TH ANNIVERSARY   
By Trebor Britt 

Tournament Director, Diogo Sousa was pleased to announce they are celebrating their 25th anniversary during this year's tournament season. 

"What a way to kick it off. This is our first West Coast tournament and we have 410 teams. We are very excited about the  growth of the sport. We also have 190 junior teams playing on Sunday," Sousa said. 

Founded in 1991, the Dig the Beach Series is the longest standing and largest series of its kind in the United States.  The Dig the Beach Volleyball Series is the most established and successful grassroots series of its kind. Since 1992 we have catered to both professional and amateur players. We have graduated some of the top professionals on the Domestic & World Tours. Annually our series makes 8 stops throughout Florida from April through August. Each tournament features 2 person teams in Adult & Juniors divisions. 

We have created and developed the largest Junior’s Program in the U.S., totaling over 200 hundred Juniors teams at some events. Our Junior’s Program consists of children ages 18 years old and younger, and caters to both boys and girls. This program involves the parents, family members, and friends. We have created a platform that has created the visibility for close to 40 young women to get scholarships to play Sand Volleyball in College. We will continue to grow the visibility for the young women to be seen as potential college players.   (Source help: www.digthebeach.com)
