OHSBVA Executive Director
Dear Friends of Boys' Volleyball,
THE OHIO VALLEY REGION (OVR) OF USA VOLLEYBALL IS THE
2018 CORPORATE SPONSOR
FOR THE OHSBVA!!
THIS YEAR'S STATE TOURNAMENT
WILL BE SAT. JUNE 2 AND SUN. JUNE 3
AT THE CAPITAL CENTER,
An exciting new season of boys' high school volleyball season is in full swing!
The success of OVR boys' volleyball goes hand in hand with everyone’s efforts to grow boys volleyball in Ohio. With several new men’s teams recently adding programs (Mt. Union, Hiram, Urbana) and more reportedly in the works, boys/men’s volleyball is clearly on the rise as a very exciting sport.
Our efforts are focused on putting together another great State Championship at the Capital Center, Capital University, focusing on additional sponsorships and continuing to work with the OHSAA to move from emerging-sport status to obtaining sanctioning as a high school sport. Hope to see you at upcoming matches and at our State Tournament.
Another successful Spike for Tykes charitable-giving tournament was held at Hiram College. Please go to http://www.spikefortykes.org/ for details on how you can still make a donation to the programs at Nationwide Children's Hospitals who services support meeting the vital needs of these children and the many around the State who have special medical circumstances. Children and their families are the recipients of the services supported by this charity, and previous year's tournaments have received broad support from our boys' programs, garnering more than $10,000 in the past. We await news of the latest success of this year's tournament in terms of money raised.
Hope to see you down the road and, until then, keep the ball flying!
Gary Hajek, OHSBVA Executive Director
