2018 USAV Collegiate Beach Champions Kristen Nuss and Claire Coppola of LSU.

In 2018, the USAV Collegiate Beach Championships rocked the north side of Hermosa Beach Pier with some of the top American collegiate beach volleyball players on both the men’s and women’s sides. From Hawaii to Houston Baptist, Cal Poly to Florida St.— there was no shortage of talent to be had on the beach!

In 2019, the USAV Collegiate Beach Championships will be back May 8-11th and again, the HOTTEST American teams in the nation will grind it out on the beach! You’ll see established athletes and some up-and-comers who will duel alongside the Pacific Ocean!

LSU Tigers Claire Coppola and Kristen Nuss won the 2018 women’s title while Florida State’s Jon Justice and Adam Wienckowski won the men’s championship. We saw TWO hot finals between the tournament’s hottest teams: LSU vs. Cal Poly’s Torrey VanWinden/Emily Sonny, and Florida St. vs. Hawaii’s Brett Rosenmeier/Colton Cowell.

Admission is free and I’ll be on the mic while DJ Gadatchy will be “gettin’ the beach bumpin’!”
