The Athletes United, the sports organization standing behind the establishing of the new US women’s professional volleyball league, announced several more names that will compete.


Given that there will be no pre-determined teams that will participate in the newly formed US women’s pro league, players who joined the competition aren’t count as transferred players but only registered and their names are published on the Athletes United website. At the moment, there are 18 players, only of the US nationality so far, who’ll compete in the pro league, four new compared to the previous summarizing.

Among them is the 25-year-old middle blocker Paige Tapp. The former US National Team member with whom she won the 2019 NORCECA Championship and Pan-American Cup two times, will thus return to professional volleyball after a one-year break.

The other three players are the opposite hitter Sareea Freeman (inactive since 2019), the middle blocker Nia Grant (Lardini Filottrano, ITA), and the setter Erica Handley (VK UP Olomouc, CZE).

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.
