“To make bigger for the second year we involved not only girls, but also the boys. This time from both elementary and secondary divisions,” Commissioner Charles Raymond Maxey said.

Ramirez  and Maxey have always dreamed of creating a grassroots sports event which would develop young athletes from the public schools. They wanted to hone the athletes’ skills in volleyball and at the same time instill the values of discipline, camaraderie, and sportsmanship.

In this second year all these teams are winners in their respective district meets all in all  their are 32 teams.

“You just need to believe in yourself. Remember, perseverance, discipline, and dedication are the key ingredients of success. As the famous line  Muhammad Ali once said: ‘don’t quit. Suffer now now and live the rest of your life a champion,’” Maxey said.
