Approval to allow staff to move forward with a competitive selection process for a Small Dollar Concession Agreement valued at less than $50,000 to manage sand volleyball camps, classes, and tournaments at Coquina Beach. There may also be other sand volleyball opportunities in park settings such as Bennett Park and others developed in the future.
Manatee County Code 2-24
Coquina Beach is located in Manatee County on the south end of Anna Maria Island.
There are currently three sand volleyball courts at Coquina Beach (one-north and two-south of the café) that are available for play by the public and visitors. Sand volleyball tournaments are periodically approved at Coquina Beach through the Parks and Natural Resources Special Event permitting process, whereby the event organizer installs temporary volleyball courts.
The County has been approached by an organizer proposing a partnership whereby the organizer would provide and install four permanent volleyball courts with nets and court boundaries near the concession building at Coquina Beach. Through an agreement, the courts would be donated to the County and the volleyball organization would be allowed to set up and conduct volleyball camps, classes, and tournaments for both local athletes and traveling teams. Other volleyball organizations have shown similar interest.
Staff recommends that a small dollar concession Request for Proposal (RFP) be developed from the attached Proposed Scope of Services so an agreement can be issued to a qualified organization that is capable of providing youth and adult recreational sand volleyball management services at Coquina Beach.
