FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 6, 2018
Calgary, Alberta: ONE Volleyball is proud to announce a new partnership with WM Wealth Management, the FIRST men’s team owner in the Calgary Premier League!
Walsh McDowell Wealth is a boutique financial planning practice with over 20 years of experience providing comprehensive advice to families from all walks of life; from young professionals to retirees, and everyone in between. Owners, Rod Walsh, Mathew McDowell and current professional volleyball athlete, Brett Walsh are very excited about having this opportunity to be part of the new Pro-volleyball league in Calgary.
“I have had the good fortune of being involved in the volleyball community for many years in Calgary. I was very excited when I heard that ONE Volleyball wanted to expand into Calgary.
The new league will play an important role in the development of our athletes. There are far too many athletes that fall through the cracks when they finish their college/university careers. Especially, those that do not make the Senior “B’ team during the summer months or those that are not able to sign a Pro contract overseas. This new league will keep athletes in the game longer. More athletes playing longer at a high level is good for volleyball in Canada,” says Rod Walsh.
"The team at WM Wealth is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the Calgary Premier League. They bring experience, passion and a head start to the game; signing a rising star as their Head Coach. We are looking forward to seeing what they accomplish this season," says Premier League co-founder Jolande Amoraal.
“We are very excited to announce Sean McKay as the head coach of our team. Sean has proven himself as a player and is committed to being a full time coach. Sean is currently the SAIT Trojans head coach and has completed his Masters degree in Kinesiology and Exercise Science.” Rod continued. "Sean has a very high standard of excellence that aligns nicely with our philosophy at WM Wealth Management."
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. It aims to support the professional development of post-secondary athletes through professional training and competition opportunities within Canada.
