The N.C. High School Sand Volleyball Association, a non-profit organization formed in 2012 to promote high school level sand volleyball in the state, will hold its first round of competition this weekend.
The club league organizers hope to grow enough interest in the sport for the N.C. High School Athletic Association to consider making sand volleyball a sanctioned activity.
Nine schools – Athens Drive High, Broughton High, Cardinal Gibbons, Ravenscroft, St. David’s Academy, Apex High, Carrboro High, Middle Creek High and The Epiphany School in New Bern – have organized club teams for the league’s first season.
Competitions will take place Friday from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Green Road Park, and 4:30 to 9 p.m. at North Cary Park and Green Hope Elementary School Park.
Games will also be played from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at Green Road Park. Caryn Grant
