USA Premier Volleyball League Championships

Posted on 24 May 2012 by Chuck Rey

Premier Volleyball League 300x100 USA Premier Volleyball League Championships volleyballYes, there is a professional indoor volleyball league in the United States. There is no glitz or glamor of the NBA, not even the WNBA, heck not even attention like the Cross Fit Games, but we have to start somewhere. The old business model of dump a ton of money into a league and the fans will come has been proven time and time again to be unsuccessful. The new business model is to build a professional league from the ground up using the current infrastructure of USA Volleyball Regions and support from some formidable clubs across the country.

Bravo to the USA Premier Volleyball League for hosting the first PVL Championship of 12 teams this coming weekend in Salt Lake City, UT being held in conjunction with the US Open Volleyball Championships. You can track the progress on Advanced Event Systems throughout the weekend.

Congratulations to all the players of that have stuck with their teams throughout the season and into this Championship. 100+ years ago, baseball players played the sport because they loved it and never would have imagined the lucrative opportunity to play a game. 100 years from now, that same opportunity will be available to volleyball players in the United States.

Anyone else notice the Misty May picture in the background when she was a setter for Long Beach State?

Doug Beal for President

Doug Beal FIVB President Doug Beal for President volleyballIn an election year, there is no better option for President than Doug Beal! He’s not a Democrat, not a Republican, nor Independent. He’s just Doug. I’m sure he has the wit and capacity to do a better job than most politicians, but the world is better off to keep him in volleyball. Doug Beal, CEO of USA Volleyball, is running for President of the FIVB.

Doug’s launched a website for his race to FIVB President: DougBeal.org The only problem I see with his campaign is a wicked good campaign slogan, so I’ve decided to come up with a few of my own: Continue Reading

More Volleyball Courts in Charlotte Please!

Posted on 06 May 2012 by Chuck Rey

Had a great day playing volleyball at Renaissance Park in Charlotte, but we need more courts! 10 courts were full the entire day. 5 courts of juniors playing doubles and sixes, and 5 courts of adult co-ed playing an assortment of volley. We actually left early because we gave up our court to let others play. We would have played more when other friends showed up, but the courts were still full. Continue Reading
