Michael Sylvara is a name heard often around Volleyball Beach! Known for hosting exciting tournaments including the Halloween Costume Tournament and Ugly Christmas Sweater Tournament, one thing is for sure – Michael knows how to take the game to the next level! We took the time to get to know a little more about the man behind the tournaments.
Growing up in South Kansas City, Michael became aware of Volleyball Beach at a young age. After playing some pick-up games during our free play sessions, Michael began to fall in love with sand volleyball. In 2015, he decided to officially sign up for a league and has held his Tuesday 7:00-8:00 PM spot ever since!
Michael has always enjoyed playing in tournaments at Volleyball Beach, exclaiming, “Playing sand volleyball all day with family and friends is hard to beat!” The only issue? When winter hit, the majority of tournaments ended until spring. Always taking the opportunity to host parties with family and friends, for Michael, it was a no brainer to put on tournaments during the fall and winter months to get everyone together for some positive fun!
When Michael isn’t tearing up the sand volleyball court, you can find him working in Real Estate or running his non-profit corporation, Challengers Farm – focusing on honeybees and tomatoes with an emphasis on challenges of the future. “I’m very passionate about the well-being of our community, state and nation,” said Michael.
When asked his favorite thing about Volleyball Beach, Michael’s answer did not come as a surprise. “There are so many great things about Volleyball Beach, but number one is the people.” Michael continued, “It’s like a family. Come as you are and be yourself. It’s a one-of-a-kind place!”
We’re so glad you found us, Michael! From everyone here at Volleyball Beach, thank you for always bringing fun and excitement to the courts. We love having you as a part of our family!
