Gulf Coast Volleyball Association: Open to Everyone to Play


The Gulf Coast Volleyball Association Begins Again!

The Gulf Coast Volleyball Association (GCVA) is the largest outdoor volleyball association on the Gulf Coast and has been rated the #1 outdoor volleyball organization by Outdoor Volleyball USA.

The GCVA features an array of high-flying scheduled tournaments at Stewart Beach and East Beach, two of Galveston Island’s premier beach parks. Don’t miss out on the fun!

You do not have to be a GCVA member to participate. Check-in at East Beach is at 8:30am with tournaments beginning promptly at 9am. For most tournaments, the first 100 players checking in at the beach will receive a free GCVA t-shirt. The entry fees are $25 per person, $50 per team.

You are playing on a REAL BEACH on the Gulf of Mexico and are subject at all times to Mother Nature. The GCVA Recorder at (832)928-4120 is updated by 5am Tournament Day, and earlier if possible.
