Will you be staying in a hotel during our event next year? All-Pro Tactical NASSC 2018 will be a Stay-to-Play event meaning, as a service to our guests, those staying in hotels must book through the complementary booking service provided by BookMyGroup. This service is available for whole teams needing blocks of rooms as well as individuals and families.
Staying at the Oceanfront hotels supporting NASSC comes with benefits of air conditioning between games, parking and of course, evening entertainment provided up and down the resort area. Even locals enjoy making the weekend a "stay-cation".
Please visit BookMyGroup to start viewing the hotels available. More will be added throughout the year. Contact Andrea at 1-800-524-1089 if you have any questions regarding hotel availability or, if you have already booked a room and need to transfer it to a BMG booking.

The men from Catalunya signed off with a victory in Virginia Beach on Sunday. FC Barcelona reclaimed the U.S. Open title at the North American Sand Soccer Championships in Virginia Beach on Sunday with a 6-1 win against Gobeachsoccer. Barca - champions in 2015 - got past Great Lakes in their semi-final while their opponents in the final beat VB Alliance earlier in the day.
In what proved a tense start to the final in a packed-out stadium, neither side could find a breakthrough in the opening 12 minutes before a brace from Heimanu Taiarui helped Barca into a 4-0 lead with one period to play.
The under-10 girls team commemorated fallen Navy SEAL William 'Ryan' Owens at the NASSC 2017.
Carryn Owens is one of the thousands of people who return to the North American Sand Soccer Championship every year, although the 2017 event proved a particularly poignant affair for her.
Owens’ daughter plays every year in the event with Beach FC but this year, following the passing of her husband, Navy SEAL William ‘Ryan’ Owens, she decided to coach her girl as part of the Red Reign team. Ryan was killed in January 2017, as part of a US mission in Yemen.
Wearing special commemorative jerseys, and with a determination to make their late husband and father proud, Owens and her daughter took to the sand eager to commemorate Ryan in appropriate fashion.
“Every day he’s a part of our lives. It’s about the girls this weekend but obviously we think of him every single day,” Owens explained to Beach Soccer Worldwide in Virginia Beach.
