Publication date: 
May 11th, 2013

Yellowknife, NT (May 10, 2013) – The sun is warming up the sands down at Long Lake, so YK Beach Volleyball is gearing up for their 2013 season!  League play commences on Tuesday, May 28, 2013 at Long Lake Beach, Fred Henne Park.

To sign up for sun packed fun in the sand, season sign-up will take place at Long Lake Beach on Sunday May 26, 2013 starting at 2:00pm. Don’t forget to bring your gear as nets will be set up for pick-up during sign-up! The YK Beach Volleyball League is open to participants 18+ and older. Players interested in participating that are under 18 are required to provide a letter of support from their parents/guardian.

Register early and you save! Registration from May 13-26th is $50/player for the season, registration after May 26th is $60/player. All new participants to the NWTVA will be required to pay the 2013 NWTVA membership fee (for National Volleyball Insurance) of $10 online https://nrs.volleyball.ca/Account/Login prior to playing. Participants are welcome to sign up as a team or an individual. Please note that if you are signing up as an individual, you will need to register in person.

The YK Beach Membership gets you up to 3 nights of play per week and entry into the Introduction/Welcome Back to Beach Clinic on June 9, 2013 – a great clinic for those transitioning from Court to Beach play. Beach Volleyball has several differences from Court Volleyball, such as having only 2 players per team, a larger softer volleyball, and smaller court.  All levels of skill are welcome to League nights – you choose the level of play you want, from Beginner to Advanced.

For YK Beach Volleyball Members interested in volunteering in this year’s beach volleyball season there will be a meeting on Monday, May 13, 2013 at Javaroma at 7:00pm. Early Bird Registration is available for Volunteers at that time.

For more information on registration and your NWTVA Membership, contact the NWTVA Executive Director, Lyric Sandhals – (867) 669-8396 or lsandhals@sportnorth.com. A schedule of the YK Beach Volleyball League and upcoming Tournaments for the 2013 season are located on the following pages.
