In a message sent to the media on the eve of the start of the second Caribbean Invitational Volleyball League at the Jean Pierre Complex, Mohammed said, “today we celebrate another milestone in the history of our volleyball era with the hosting of this event.

We are also celebrating 50 years of our organization since we became recognized by the T & T Olympic Committee.

We have indeed progress and we are definitely one of the top Volleyball Association in the Caribbean. As an organization, we have our struggles to stay afloat but the support received by the membership and the volunteers is what gave us fuel to continue.

In reflection on our 50 year history, we must recognize the service of some of our members like Raphael Hosein, past president (24 years) Peter Mungal, past president and national coach, Macsood Ali, national player and coach, Curtis Burkette, national captain and coach and more recently Gideon Dickson, national player and national coach, Nolan Tash and Krystle Esdelle our current national captains.

Although I am able to name a few here, it is by no means an attempt to sideline the involvement of any other person since we have all made significant contributions over the years.

As we turn our focus to the hosting of the Caribbean League, it is my best wishes to all the participating clubs and players to bring this event to our shores. The hosting of this event is already a success since we were able to attract players from our Caribbean neighbors  to participate as colleagues in one event.

I want to thank the Local Organizing Committee for their work and involvement in the competition, which one day can become self sustainable and grow into a professional league.
