Get ready to don your favorite superhero or sidekick costume and have some fun at the beach!

This year's event happens on October 8th, includes a volleyball tournament, a youth volleyball clinic, and fun family-friendly activities open to everyone. Goodies, music, and lots of fun for everyone on the sand! Plus a raffle and amazing prizes for tournament winners and best superhero costumes.

All proceeds benefit Lollipop Theater Network, a charity that brings movies and entertainment to hospitalized kids nationwide.



VOLLEYBALL TOURNAMENT

Dress as your favorite superhero and volley for a great cause! This is a KOB/QOB tourney with a fun twist. KOB/QOB is doubles (2x2) format, switching partners every game. The individuals with the most wins at the end of the day from each division are crowned the king and queen - or in this case, the Superheroes of the Beach!

Individual registration / Men's and Women's

Superheroes division = competitive (>=A-level) / Sidekicks division = fun (everyone else)

YOUTH VOLLEYBALL CLINIC

MJ of MJ's Angels will be out on the sand teaching fundamentals, skills, and strategies to anyone under 18 who wants to level up their game. Clinic is 45 minutes and will take place at 10am in parallel to tournament pool play.

OPEN SERVING COMPETITION

Serving competition will take place between 2-3pm as we tally up for playoffs and is open to anyone who purchases an activities punchcard. We'll have awesome prizes spread out all over a volleyball court. Just serve over the net and win anything you hit on the other side.

LOTS OF FAMILY FUN

Fun tents full of activities like face painting and tattoos will ensure the day is just as super for young people, the non-volleyball set, and even passersby. Purchase an activities punchcard for access to it all at a great value, or pay ad hoc along the way for just the items you choose.

The June 21st, Go Skate Day events at the Venice Skatepark have been cancelled due to a threat of violence.

"I am very sad to announce that we have to cancel GSD in Venice." Heidi Lemmon, one of the events organizers, posted to Facebook on Saturday.

"With so many mass shootings in the usa every day we believe it is best to err on the side of safety. All the signs are there, the threats are credible and we will not take any chances where kids are involved. My sincere apologies to all our sponsors, the City of Los Angeles and Venice Recreation and Parks. * this is not a local he is an out of state person."

What we little info we gathered so far, is that someone wants to control all events ($$$$$) at the Venice Skatepark and threatened Heidi and "... anyone at the park that gets in the way."

UPDATED INFO:
Heidi Lemmon and on of the other event organizers do not want to give any "airtime" to the person who made the threats, so they are not disclosing who this individual is.

Some info about the person that has be going around the rumor mill is that he is from out-of-state, but currently local (opposite of the original info given) , and he is a Hispanic male in his 40's. Also that the "authorities" consider his threats "credible".



Everyday people doing extraordinary things outdoors. That’s the inspiration behind the Hydro Flask “Why We Go” series. These films from Hydro Flask showcase unique individuals chasing adventures that allow them to be their best selves.

Jake Familton, aka Stuntman Jake, the 10 yr old Skateboarder from Venice Beach.
Barbie has announced 12-year-old skateboarder Sky Brown as a Barbie Role Model by unveiling a one-of-a-kind doll created in her likeness, to highlight how she has broken boundaries for the next generation of girls.



Sky Brown is a professional skateboarder and surfer. Sky will be competing for Team GB next year in the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics, making her Great Britain’s youngest Summer Olympian ever, and the youngest Olympic athlete since 1936. Sky began skating and surfing at the age of two and quickly became a phenomenon when short videos of her gained millions of views on YouTube.



As the original girl empowerment brand, Barbie is dedicated to shining a spotlight on powerful, diverse role models to inspire the limitless potential in every girl, and this year honours women breaking barriers in sports. The doll is dressed in Nike activewear and holds a skateboard, ready for adventures on and off the ramp.

The doll was gifted to Sky as she recovers from injuries from her worst fall yet, breaking her left wrist and hand and suffering skull fractures earlier this year at a skate park in California.



Sky’s already looking forward to recovering and picking up her skateboard. She commented: “I’m going to push boundaries for girls with my skating and surfing. I’m going for gold in 2021 and nothing will stop me. Having a Barbie created in my likeness is one of the most incredible things that’s ever happened to me. I hope other girls my age can see what is possible when you follow your dreams.”

Earlier this year, Sky released a book titled ‘Sky’s the Limit’ – a compilation of stories and inspirational quotes illustrating Sky’s journey so far. Sky hopes to continue making history while inspiring fans of all ages across the world.

This year, Barbie is spotlighting female role models in sports, in an effort to close the Dream Gap; the time when girls start to doubt that they can be anything. Research shows that when girls play sports, they report higher levels of confidence, which in turn breaks down barriers to girl’s self-belief.

The Barbie Dream Gap Project is an ongoing global initiative that aims to give girls the resources and support needed to continue to believe that they can be anything. Barbie is working to close the Dream Gap by: highlighting role models, encouraging purposeful play, and donating funds.
