A few more names that will compete in the newly formed US women’s professional volleyball League are revealed.


As time goes by after the announcement of the start of the new US women’s professional league, the names of more and more players taking part in it are being revealed. Certainly, the biggest name of all so far is the country’s national team captain Jordan Larson!

Initially, she was only to act in the “background“ as a Player Advisory Board member (along with the national team colleague Foluke Akinradewo) but she has also been listed as the player on the Athletes Unlimited (league organizer) website. The 33-year-old outside hitter (a two-time Olympic medalist) spent the last season in China, defending the colors of Shanghai.

Aside from several players whose names were disclosed earlier, these players were added to the list of participants in the league in the meantime: Katie Carter (OPP, inactive since 2018), Erin Fairs (OH, AS Aris, Greece), Cursty Le Roux (ex-Jackson) (MB, inactive since 2019), Cassidy Lichtman (OH, inactive since 2017), Molly Lohman (MB, FATUM Nyíregyháza, Hungary), Molly McCage (MB, inactive since 2019), Deja McClendon (OH, Itambé/Minas, Brazil), and Valerie Nichol (S, SC Potsdam, Germany).

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
