AARC Hosts 9th Annual Sand Volleyball Tournament

Posted: Updated:

Volleyball players show their strength in numbers.

Dozens turn out for the 9th Annual Spike Out Violence Sand Volleyball Tournament.

This event is hosted by the Abused Adult Resource Center every year.

The tournament consists of men's, women's, and coed divisions.

Lindsey Brew has been playing volleyball ever since she can remember and enjoys getting together with her team to support this event.

"Ahh who doesn't want to be outside in the sun, you know, it get's a little bit dirty. I play three nights a week so my car is full of sand but it's a lot of fun. You don't get hurt when you fall, you can dive all over the place," says Lindsey Brew.

Over the years, the Spike Out Violence tournament has grown and teams travel from all across North Dakota to compete.

AARC's Special Event Planner says 50 to 60 percent of the teams are returning and that it's something they look forward to supporting every year.

"The topic that we deal with on a daily basis isn't always comfortable to talk about and it's a problem that doesn't really have a lot of easy answers. So it's nice to come out, have fun, get your team together, play some volleyball and know in the end that your money is going to help a good cause," says Katie Oliver, Special Event Planner, AARC.

All of the money raised from the event will go to the AARC to help victims of domestic abuse and to help raise awareness.
