The National Volleyball League is expected to sign a three-year contract with The Beach Waterpark Wednesday to host its Midwest Championships and Junior Festival.
The event, which takes place July 19-21 this year, is expected to bring nationally-recognized beach volleyball players and fans to the area.
The agreement marks the first multi-year contract the organization has signed with a venue, according to NVL officials.
NVL founder Albert “Al-B” Hanneman founded the Los Angeles-based organization in 2010. The organization hosts a series of professional, pro-am and open beach volleyball tournaments each year nationwide.
The Beach Waterpark, which has been closed since September 2011, will reopen May 18 with $5 million worth of upgrades. Adventure Holdings LLC, parent company of Jacksonville Beach, Fla.-based Adventure Landing, purchased the park earlier this year.
