About us

It all began in 1988 with a dream. A dream to have Brandon host the largest indoor volleyball tournament!

Pat Josephson was the Executive Director of the Assiniboine Community College Students’ Association from 1975-1998. She started Sun of a Beach in 1988 with only 16 teams, and it has grown exponentially over the past 27 years. Today, this event includes 4 courts, 230 yards of sand, and 96 co-ed volleyball teams.

The social hosts around 2000 people for one awesome party! People from all over Westman come to Brandon to participate, and they come back every year after.
