GNBV’s 10th Anniversary

We’ve made it to our 10th anniversary!

GNBV celebrates our 10th anniversary of helping athletes “Get Noticed” and recruited to play beach volleyball at Division I NCAA schools. My name is Daron Forbes & I started the journey to get my own daughter recruited. As an indoor club owner my goal was to get my daughter recruited and return back to indoor. After that first tournament the college coaches asked for more and here we are ten years later. I closed my indoor club Team WAVE aka We Are Volleyball Elite and went all in on beach. So far that we know of, we have helped 777 athletes achieve their dreams of playing beach volleyball in college. You can see all these athletes & where they got recruited to by visiting our committed only page at @gnbv.commits on instagram.

We can’t wait for the next Get Noticed Beach Volleyball aka GNBV National College Recruiting Showcase Feb 4th in Santa Monica. This one will be international with teams traveling from Ecuador to participate. Over the years we have had athletes travel from Singapore, Denmark, England, Mexico, Ecuador, Columbia, Canada, & Puerto Rico.

Because teams are traveling from around the world to play we made it a two day series of events with lots of options to choose from so athletes can make the most of their trip. Here’s what a showcase weekend in Santa Monica, CA looks like:

BVNE Sunrise College Coaches Clinic 7am-9am

Kauai Bikini tournament
Every paid entry gets a two piece KB top & bottom of their choice.

BVNE Sunset College Coaches Clinic

Clinics are open to any and all entrants. The is this an awesome opportunity for the athletes to train with up to 6 or 7 college coaches, learn new drills & prepare for the showcase. It’s also a great place to network with other athletes for potential new partners and make life long connections with new friends.

Athletes can customize their weekend with any combo of events that first their schedule.

Sunday is the grand finale, our GNBV National College Recruiting Showcase. On average we have 15 college coaches who travel from across the United States to watch athletes play. USC, UCLA, Pepperdine, Long Beach, LMU, Vanguard, Concorida, Cal Poly, Tulane, South Carolina, Stanford & Cal Berkeley just to name a few, are the schools that are staples at our events.

Over the years we have figured out what works for the athletes, college coaches and our system is set and ready for another amazing ten years. As we celebrate our success with the players, families & college coaches we strive to keep getting better. It’s easy when you do what you love and love what you do.

Thank you to all who have help GNBV become the largest national college recruiting showcase and we look forward to see everyone on the sands of Santa Monica, CA.
