COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Dec. 27, 2023) — Pro Volleyball Federation, the professional women’s volleyball league in the United States, has teamed up with USA Volleyball – the national governing body of the sport in the U.S. – to promote volleyball at its highest level.

USA Volleyball will support Pro Volleyball Federation’s professional league in America, which launches in January. The partnership reinforces the League’s commitment to work with USA Volleyball clubs, athletes and regions while USAV supports Pro Volleyball Federation’s commitment to providing top professional opportunities to America’s greatest female volleyball players.

“We are so proud to provide these world-class athletes within the USA Volleyball pipeline with a domestic opportunity to play professionally at the highest level in the United States while still being able to pursue their dreams of representing their country on the U.S. National Team,” touted Dave Whinham, co-founder of the Pro Volleyball Federation. “We have tremendous respect for the work being done by USA Volleyball and its 40 regions throughout the country, and we are excited to strengthen the entire volleyball pipeline in our nation.”

Pro Volleyball Federation currently boasts 17 players from the United States who have spent time in the U.S. National Team gym. Overall, there are 35 domestic and international players in the League who have been part of their respective country’s Olympic or national team system.

More than 135 athletes have signed contracts to play in the inaugural season of Pro Volleyball Federation. They will be led by a group of accomplished coaches who have combined for more than 2,500 career victories.

“Pro Volleyball Federation has created a buzz not only in the United States, but throughout the world of volleyball,” said Jamie Davis, President and CEO of USA Volleyball. “We are thrilled to partner with Pro Volleyball Federation and see the League as a great platform where so many outstanding American players can continue their careers as professional athletes and US National Team members.”

There is also no lack of Team USA representation within the ranks of Pro Volleyball Federation. In addition to the athletes, four-time Olympic medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings leads the ownership group of the San Diego Mojo. The Mojo feature three-time Olympian and two-time silver medalist Tayyiba Haneef-Park as head coach, while Team USA stars Logan Tom and Laurie Corbelli bring extensive national team experience to Pro Volleyball Federation’s executive staff.

The Mojo is one of seven teams playing in the League’s first season, joining the Atlanta Vibe, Columbus Fury, Grand Rapids Rise, Omaha Supernovas, Orlando Valkyries, and Vegas Thrill. The second season in 2025 will welcome numerous additional squads, with Dallas, Indianapolis and Kansas City already announced as 2025 markets.
