Quality Beach Soccer recently traveled to Virginia Beach last weekend to represent The Bahamas in the North American Sand Soccer Championships, June 6-8th.
The men’s team competed in the US Open Pro/Am Division and the Under 16 Men’s made their international debut against the top teams from across the United States and other international competition from abroad.

Senior team members included Ehren Hanna, Lesly St. Fleur, Alex Thompson, Dwayne Forbes, Perez Brooks, Gavin Christie, Mark Daniels, Christopher Davis, Gary Joseph, Cameron Hepple, Dominique Bannister and Bryan Kemp.
The NASSC is one of the largest Beach Soccer tournaments in the world, and fielded over 10, 000 participating players involved, and over 127, 000 participants in total.
