College Sand


When the total number of institutions sponsoring sand volleyball reaches 40, which it has as of Jan. 2014, the NCAA will begin the transition from an emerging sport status to a championship sport. After the transition is complete, which could take two years, the NCAA will sponsor the national championship. Information about the 2014 AVCA Collegiate Sand National Championships.
