FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 16, 2018
Calgary, Alberta: ONE Volleyball is proud to announce a new partnership with Vogel-LLP as the latest to own a team in the Calgary Premier League!
Founded in 2000, Vogel LLP is local mid-size law firm with 18 lawyers that specializes in Family, Estate and Personal Injury law.
“We are excited to help grow the game in Calgary with the Calgary Premier League,” said Vogel LLP Partner, Andy Hayher, who helped the SAIT Trojans to a CCAA silver medal as a player, and head coached the team to a CCAA Bronze in 2012."
The Vogel LLP team will be coached by former Calgary Dino’s player and Assistant Coach, Tyler Fraser and managed by Mount Royal University’s Men’s Volleyball Coach Shawn Sky. Fraser played out his eligibility for UofC followed by a brief International career on the FIVB Beach Tour.
"I was really excited to get the call from Andy about getting involved with ONE Volleyball," Fraser says. "The volleyball community in Calgary is incredible, and I'm looking forward to seeing the different generations of players come together. Andy and I have been talking about the team identity, and we feel confident that we'll be very much like a 2004 Malbec: complex layers, mineral, a slight toasted oak, but with a smooth finish.
Fraser continues, "I'm looking forward to helping grow the volleyball community in Calgary. Andy was my setter in High School, but we've rarely had the opportunity to play or coach together, so I'm excited to reconnect through something that we both care so much about."
"This is a fantastic step for the League to bring in such a great company like Vogel LLP. With their knowledge and experience, there are only positive things to come. Andy, Shawn and Tyler have been such a huge part of the volleyball community in Calgary, and they will do an incredible job running a team,” says, Calgary League Director, Jarron Mueller.
About: The ONE Volleyball Premier League runs in Calgary and Toronto and is comprised of four men’s and four women’s elite teams in each city that compete in June and July.
