“The Premier League is an exciting new opportunity for athletes and volleyball fans. I’m looking forward to coaching and promoting the expansion of this league. It’s rewarding to be part of anything related to volleyball growth in Canada. This was my experience coaching Pakmen for many years - witnessing the club increase in size and quality.
“The Premier League has great potential in positively impacting Elite volleyball in Canada,” owner Michael Albert says.
“I am intrigued by the new Premier League because I believe it works on many levels. First of all, it is an excellent training platform for the professional and varsity athletes during their off-season. Secondly, with the amount of great talent, this will be amazing volleyball for people to watch and maybe even scouts will use it to offer future contracts. And lastly, as a coach in the club system, I know how inspiring it will be to the younger athletes to see some of their coaches competing at this his level. Maybe they will inspire the next wave of Premier League athletes,” Pat Daniels says.
