Action at a previous NORCECA tournament in Cayman

(CNS Local Life): The Cayman Islands Volleyball Federation (CIVF) ] will once again be a host country for the NORCECA Beach Volleyball Tournament, set for 26-28 April at Public Beach. The competition, which returns to Cayman after a break in 2018, will be one of the first stops on the 2019 NORCECA tour, featuring teams from the US, Canada and around the region.

Those competing will start their bid to accumulate points to qualify for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, stated a Cayman Islands Volleyball Federation (CIVF) press release. 

CIVF president Kennedy McGowan said the organisation is excited to have Cayman return to the NORCECA circuit. “This sporting event is popular among the locals and very well attended. This is CIVF’s 10th year hosting which is a testament to the quality of the event here in Cayman, how well organised it is and the confidence NORCECA has that we will put on a good show,” he said.

He noted that the players and officials know “they will be treated to the Caymankind hospitality”, adding “the competition will be fierce, fair and fun. We look forward to welcoming the athletes to our island.”

In 2017, the tournament attracted elite athletes from Puerto Rico, Cuba, Guatemala, Trinidad, Nicaragua, the US, Canada, St Kitts and Nevis, Virgin Islands and El Salvador.  Cayman entered two female teams and a male team.

Tickets for the NORCECA Beach Volleyball Tournament will go on sale soon at various locations, with covered stand seats costing $5. VIP ticket details will be announced at a later date.
