Jun 28, 2023 - Sand Triples Division
Waupaca Boatride - 1300 Triples Teams

We blew by last year's Triples record weeks ago. We're now over 1300 teams for Saturday and very full. We do however have 12 sand courts that don't get used on that day, so we are going to open up our first ever Sand Triples division. For many of the men's waitlist teams, this is probably your best chance of participating in a tournament that day.

Note: this division will be played on short courts.

Women's and Coed teams are welcome to play in this division, but there will not be a women's only division this year. At the time of this writing, there were 120 men's teams on the waitlist and only 10 women's teams.

We are using the online tournament software called Volleyball Life for our GRASS check-ins, waivers, schedules and results. Teams will enter their own scores directly from their phones, and people can follow along from anywhere.

Update: We learned last year that there will be some phone carriers that struggle to handle the amount of people on the grounds. If you are having issues recording scores, please report them to your headquarters tent. Keeping the pool results up-to-date is very important.

Check-In: Be on the lookout for check-in emails the night before the tournament. If you do not check-in online, you must come early to check-in in person. Tournaments will not start until all teams are checked in.

Roster Changes: Please make your own roster changes by using the edit link from your team confirmation email.

NEW
There will be an onsite camp store this year filled with essentials such as beer, food, ice and other items campers may have forgotten to bring.

The thought process behind the camp store is to offer people items that they would normally leave the campgrounds for. Two-way traffic, especially in the mornings with so many pedestrians, causes some safety concerns, so we are trying to minimize the need for people to leave.

Please take this 5 question survey to help us make some decisions about the store. Survey

May 15, 2022 - Waupaca Boatride Becomes an AVP Pro Tour Event
Waupaca Boatride - AVP 2022

The Open Sand Division at Waupaca Boatride has been upgraded to an AVP Pro Tour event for 2022! Last year's AVP Next Gold event was a big success and the next step was to make it a Pro Tour stop. The AVP has raised the prize money purse to $50,000 and the tournament will now be a 3-day event, starting on Thursday, July 7 and ending on Saturday, July 9.

There will be a 48 team, single-elimination qualifier for men and women on Thursday, July 7, followed by a 24 team double-elimination main draw tournament starting on Friday and finishing up with the final matches on Saturday.

For those AVP players that are worried about not being able to play on Saturday in the Triples tournament, we are going to try to be as flexible as possible with the Triples Open divisions. We are only expecting a handful of players to be affected, but since there's no way to know that ahead of time, we suggest registering for both tournaments and/or using 4 player rosters. We will be lenient with last minute changes, as well as the refund policy. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Visit AVP America to register or to view more information.
