OHSBVA Executive Director
Dear Friends of Boys' Volleyball,
Welcome to another new and exciting season of
boys' high school volleyball! It's hard to believe that our spring season is just around the corner with the first date of play Friday, March 20.
I wanted to wish the best of success to our guys who are already honing their skills playing on a boys' club team in tournaments sponsored by
the Ohio Valley Region of USA Volleyball.
We are grateful to again have the OVR as
the corporate sponsor of the OHSBVA - partnering to grow boys volleyball!
I wanted to provide a short update on efforts in partnership with the Ohio High School Athletic Association to determine the possibility of boys' volleyball becoming one of the next emerging sports to be sanctioned as a high school sport. I ask that everyone remain patient as the OHSAA continues its on-going efforts to determine the timing and viability of sanctioning boys' volleyball. There are complex organizational issues still under review, but the signs remain positive!
Thanks again to Rob Ebel and ESP Media for its live broadcasts of our State Tournament matches! We are working with ESP Media on a variety of projects to benefit boys' volleyball.
In addition, I am excited that we will be back at the Capital Center at Capital University the weekend following Memorial Day, Sat. May 30-Sun. May 31 for our 2020 State Championships.
Until next time, keep the ball flying!
Gary Hajek, OHSBVA Executive Director
