CLUB Sponsorship Package
Within 2 weeks of announcing the Premier League via this video, it saw over 14,000 views and reached over 40,000 people on social media alone.
ONE Volleyball was founded to provide professional training and competition opportunities to elite post-secondary athletes.
Their vision is to establish the first-ever professional volleyball league in Canada - the Premier League. To support this vision, they created the Challenger Series - three one-day tournaments - that has formed a network of partners and athletes that will sustain the League.
Co-founders Jaki and Jolande have combined experience playing Professional and National Team volleyball as well as working within Provincial, National and Professional sport associations.
In this brief:
1. The Premier League
2. ONE Demographics & Insights
3. ONE Values
Overview: The Premier league is comprised of 4 elite men's and 4 elite women's teams that play each other twice over the course of 2 months, with a final four weekend championship at the end.
Athletes apply to be in the draft through the ONE Volleyball league website, and are selected to teams through a closed draft. The Premier Draft Announcement is the event that unveils the newly formed teams, and Lululemon Jerseys.
Athletes will never be required to pay a fee to play in the Premier League. In Year one, we expect <5% of athletes participating in the league will be paid a salary. In Year two, we expect <10% of athletes will be paid a salary. In Year three, we expect that at least 20% of athletes will be paid a salary. In all contracts we expect that clubs will offer athletes the opportunity to coach and mentor young athletes in their club through camps, clinics and team programs.
