Soccer fields will be transformed from the grass to sand on Saturday and Sunday, as the sixth-annual Soccer in the Sand Tournament returns to Grand Haven.

Action begins at 8:30 a.m., Saturday and continues throughout the day at the Grand Haven State Park beach.

Tournament founder Chis LeMay said the event featured over 100 teams last year and the numbers appear to be right on that pace once again.

The games are a 4-versus-4 format, plus goal keepers. Games consist of three 11-minute periods. All teams are guaranteed at least three bracket games with the opportunity to advance to the semifinals and finals, which are Sunday.

Divisions range from 8-and-under to adult coed and men’s open.

The event is a festive atmosphere, with live music and unique vending options, LeMay said.

Hey, I have heard about beach volley ball, but it would be even more interesting to watch soccer on the beach.
