St. Augustine, FL (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
The ROX Volleyball Series will unite the beach volleyball family across the United States by offering a National beach tour with no athlete membership requirements and will establish unmatched quality standards for all participating tour partners.
ROX Volleyball is proud to introduce the ROX Volleyball Series, a new National beach tour set to kick off for the 2015 season. This series will replace the NVL & ROX Beach series from the previous year, which will no longer be in operation. The decision was based upon the expansion and growth of ROX Volleyball to include a wider audience of tour affiliates and to identify the top talent in the USA by offering a non-membership based tour.
Troy Olson, Vice President and Co-Owner of ROX Volleyball, said “After a great season and lots of new friends, we would like to wish the NVL great success in their future endeavors and we plan to continue working with them on growing the sport of volleyball. Our core values and mission at ROX Volleyball compels us to work with all tours and events in our sport. We have selected top directors from across the country to be on our advisory board and to help us create a series that can unite the volleyball family, as well as identify the top athletes in the USA.” We would also like to welcome Molten to our Rox Volleyball series as the official ball. Molten has been leading the sport with their passion for the game and innovative ideas in Volleyball manufacturing.
Along with reconnecting with USA Beach Volleyball in order to eliminate athlete beach membership requirements, there will be no cost to tour directors who decide to partner with the ROX Volleyball Series. Affiliates will also gain access to an elite online event management tool.
Additional features that the ROX Volleyball Series offers their tour affiliates and participants include:
- Athletes can compete in a national beach tour for an opportunity to win a bid to the ROX Volleyball Series Nationals in Florida.
- The ROX Volleyball Series will not require a specific membership. Existing tour promoters can continue their current model and also award bids to the ROX Volleyball Series Nationals.
- The ROX Volleyball Series will provide complementary product and event items for tour partners based on their tour size and participation levels.
- The ROX Volleyball Series will award bids to select tours across the US for tour partners that can meet minimum quality standards.
- The ROX Volleyball Series can recognize any existing tour that meets minimum quality standards, regardless of their membership program.
- The ROX Volleyball Series Nationals will allow athletes from any recognized tour to participate, regardless of their respective membership affiliation.
The Florida Region of USA Volleyball, former management team of the NVL & ROX Beach Series, will continue to support the efforts of ROX Volleyball by endorsing the new National series.
Steve Bishop, Executive Director and President of the Florida Region of USA Volleyball, commented, “We love the idea of a national tour that can work with anyone regardless of their membership program. This concept has been a long time coming and I applaud ROX Volleyball for once again blazing a new trail in the volleyball landscape. With all of the existing fractures in the beach game, this new series will allow the top tour promoters in the US to affiliate with the ROX Volleyball Series and become part of a national movement, with great benefits and no cost. The momentum gained last season with the NVL & ROX Series spoke volumes about the growth of the sport and the need to create more win-win solutions for promoters and athletes across the country. I predict that the ROX Volleyball Series, with their National Championships here in Florida, will make a great impact on this sport volleyball short period of time and the Florida Region looks forward to affiliating with the series.
There will be three tour partner agreement options to choose from, which offer varying levels of support and value. For additional information about the ROX Volleyball Series, please visit http://www.roxvolleyball.com.
