Arizona to offer sand volleyball in spring


They're taking it to the sand in Arizona.

According to the Arizona Republic, the Arizona Interscholastic Association's executive board approved a pilot sand volleyball program on Monday, allowing Arizona to become the first state to offer sand volleyball as a high school sport.

The season is scheduled to start in early February and conclude with an eight-team state tournament in April. It could open the door to sand volleyball being sanctioned as an AIA sport.

Sand volleyball was approved as an emerging sport by the NCAA and will open its season in March.
