On Saturday, January 18th the Cayman Islands Volleyball Federation kicked off its youth beach season with a BIG-little tournament which pairs an adult player with a junior player. This tournament was played king/queen of the court style where teams rotated and each BIG played with each little.
Ailey Finch, 12, had this to say about the event, “I liked being with older people because they could help me and they were all so much fun. It made me feel like a good volleyball player. I can’t wait for the next tournament!”.
Players played seven games and accumulated points for each game won. Andrea Tognazzo went undefeated and was crowned Prince while Megan McCoombs won five of her matches and was crowned Princess. Alex McLaughlin and Alicia Proud-Rabess took home King and Queen honours respectively.
The next youth beach tournament takes place on February 15th at Public Beach. For more information please visit our events page or reach out to our Youth Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org .
