At last! The first-ever professional volleyball league in the United States will kick off the first week of December, with a three-day weekend tournament where the top eight teams from across the country duke it out in a live stream event partnered with the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada!

The National Volleyball Association, an all-new professional sports league, will showcase the top talent from the United States. The inaugural season will feature the strongest teams from both coasts, and we have some players that are sure to be fan favorites!

Who can you expect to see on the main stage at the official launch and throughout the season? Blizzard Volleyball will feature 2012 Olympic athlete Russell Holmes as the team’s starting middle hitter. Keeping things in the Team USA family, Lloy Ball, 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist, will be the setter for Team Pineapple. And another huge name in the sport, AVP champ Taylor Crabb will take up the mantle as starting outside hitter for Academy United.
