Former beach superstars Tim Hovland and Steve Obradovich, indoor Olympic gold medalists Steve Timmons, Dusty Dvorak and Pat Powers, Olympic bronze medalists Bryan Ivie and Nick Becker, two-time Olympians Celso Kalache and Donald Suxho, indoor All-Americans Bob Yoder and Bill Stetson and current beach star Tri Bourne are slated to participate.

Olympic gold medalist and current assistant coach Misty May-Treanor and 2012 captain Geena Urango are among the women.

Serving as honorary legend of the two-day event will be Ron Lang, 77, a 1964 Olympian and Volleyball Hall of Famer who won nearly 50 beach tournaments.

Hosted by the USC Men’s Volleyball Booster and Alumni Club, the tournament will begin at 5 p.m. on Oct. 17 and then at a time to be determined on Oct. 18, depending on the kickoff of USC’s homecoming football game against Colorado that Saturday.
