Belize has some very strong teams, who have been training with Cuban Coach Profe Juan Carlos Perdomo since the beginning of the year. Belize’s athletes are well-prepared and have shown excellent results in international tournaments so far this year. After Francis Hauze and Michael Jenkins brought home the bronze medal from the U-21 Central American Beach Volleyball Championship in Guatemala last month, all players and fans are excited and ready for more. Belize is ready to go for the Gold!
Kukumba Beach at Old Belize will be the perfect atmosphere for high-energy fun for all sports enthusiasts during this action-packed weekend event. The Belize Volleyball Association wishes to thank Old Belize for its partnership in hosting this event, as well as major sponsors Central TV & Internet, TNC-10, Bowen & Bowen Ltd., and the Belize Tourism Board.
