Beach Volleyball at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics was held from August 17 to August 27. This was the first time beach volleyball was held at the Youth Olympics with indoor volleyball appearing at the 2010 edition.[1] The events took place at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Center in Nanjing, China.

Qualification[edit]

A total of 36 teams will participate in each gender. Each National Olympic Committee (NOC) can enter a maximum of 2 teams of 2 athletes, 1 per each gender. As hosts, China was initially given the maximum quota, but only field a girls' team and a further 10 teams, 5 in each gender was to be decided by the Tripartite Commission, but only 5 were given, the others were reallocated to the top ranked teams not yet qualified. Each of the five volleyball federations will host qualification events to qualify 12 teams, 6 in each gender.[2]

Africa and Asia hosted a single qualification tournament while Europe created a Youth Continental Cup with different zonal stages ending with a final qualification tournament. South America created a six legged tour, though only five events were held where the six countries with the most points qualified and North, Central America and Caribbean hosted four zonal tournaments where the winners qualified to the Youth Olympics and a final tournament where the top two nations qualified.[3]

Only athletes born between 1 January 1996 and 31 December 1999 were eligible to participate in the 2014 Youth Olympics.[2]
