USA Beach Announces Initial 2016 Tour Schedule Including Carolina Grand Slam

The 6th edition of the Carolina Grand Slam will be held on May 14-15, 2016 as part of the 2016 USA Junior Beach Volleyball Tour. The 2016 USA Beach tour championships will be held in Milwaukee, WI, which hosted the event in 2013 and 2014 as well. The 2015 tour championships were held in VA Beach.

In 2015, close to 150 teams attended the Carolina Grand Slam, the largest ever for the event, from 5 states participating at 3 venues in Apex and Cary. As a Grand Slam, up to 5 bids per age group are offered for the tour championships.

In years past, several of the bid earners from the Carolina Grand Slam have gone on to participate well at the tour championships, including the 2014 Girls 16U National Champions – Kylie Grandy and Jenna Simpkins.
