Happy New Year and welcome to 2022!!!
I want to first thank the OHSBVA Executive Board in their trust in engaging my services to assist in leading Ohio High School Boys Volleyball into the next chapter of development, enhancement, encouragement, and the continued successes of the OHSBVA!
As we continue with the challenges bestowed upon us by the OHSAA in becoming a sanctioned sport in Ohio, I want to inform everyone that the Board is working diligently with the OHSAA in determining the plateau of their requirements and then meeting each one of the stated requirements. The Board has engaged Matt Mihelic to be the Champion of this task and he has already man inroads with the OHSAA in determining what paths are needing to be traveled to accomplish this goal. In the event Matt reaches out to you for any type of assistance or information, please accommodate his needs as quickly and as accurately as possible. Progress of sanctioning in 2022 is the exciting goal!
The OHSBVA has received several notifications of new schools starting boys’ volleyball programs. Again, this is exciting news and I ask that each of the applicable Regional Representatives working in conjunction with Anita Brockman, President, to communicate to these new programs / Coaches / AD’s and assist where needed. If I can be of any assistance directly, please contact me and I will be there!
In closing, if you have any items for discussion, suggestions for inclusion in this corner in the future, or any items of concern, email me directly and I will do everything in my power to accomplish those matters. The Executive Corner will be updated with new information on a biweekly basis as a minimum during the offseason and then weekly during the season! If you, as a Coach, have an exciting match or a cross town rivalry match, that you wish to have considered for the Match Of The Week, please email with that information!
Thanks and stay safe and healthy!
