WALLA WALLA — Sweets Volleyball Club has been selected to become a Nike sponsored team, and each of the SVC teams will wear Nike uniforms and sweat outfits for the 2014 season as Nike is providing SVC with a discount on apparel and shoes.
Sweets Volleyball Club provides female athletes in the Walla Walla Valley the opportunity to learn and play volleyball. This past season, 11 teams and more than 100 girls grades 4-12 participated in the program.
Last season, many businesses in the Walla Walla Valley served as sponsors to ensure that no girls were turned away due to SVC fees.
“Our local sponsors were key to the success of Sweets Volleyball Club this past year and they will continue to be an essential part of this program moving forward,” said SVC director Scott Schafer.
Local sponsors included Columbia REA, Graphic Apparel, Andy’s Market, Banner Bank, Walla Walla Environmental, Walla Walla Wine Club, Evergreen Labs, Pioneer Title, Lloyd’s Insurance and American West Bank.
Sweets Volleyball tips off the 2014 season with tryouts in November.
