Virginia Sand Soccer Championships Returns to Buckroe Beach June 3-4!

June 01, 2017 |

This June 3-4, Buckroe Beach will welcome the Virginia Sand Soccer Championships! The event, formerly the AIM Sand Soccer Shootout, is open to the public and expected to draw over 500 athletes and thousands of spectators from across the country.

During the weekend, games will take place in the sand on the north side of Buckroe Beach Park (fields start near the playground and are stacked end to end down to the park ranger station). Each team registered for the Virginia Sand Soccer Championships will play a minimum of three (3) matches, with the top two (2) teams from each division (12-15 divisions total) advancing to a final. Each division will play a final match on Sunday, June 5, with first (1st) and second (2nd) place teams receiving awards.

Other activities taking place during the Virginia Sand Soccer Championships include Bubble Soccer, in which participants are encased in zorb-like inflatable bubbles and encouraged to bounce off each other as they fight for possession of the ball, and Sand Soccer Tennis, a hybrid of traditional soccer tennis and Brazilian Footvolley. Other highlights include live music, food and merchandise vendors, and more.
