February has come and gone. It was a busy month with events every weekend including the Marianas Cup Beach Volleyball Festival. This year, the main tournament was held in Guam but the pros visited Saipan to not only showcase their talent but also to hold training clinics for the youth. The American pros played an exhibition match against the Japanese women.
The pro exhibition brings great athletic talent to our small island.
Beach volleyball is continuously growing in the CNMI with lots of teens coming out to Russ' practices on Wednesdays and Saturdays. In fact, two of the youth will compete in this summer's University Games in Kazan, Russia with Russ as the coach. What an exciting opportunity for all!
