“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” -Carl Bard
Earlier this week, 10 lucky winners received a very exciting phone call from one of our All Volleyball Team Members. Those winners were picked to guests at our exclusive Private Shopping Event!!
Today, we opened our store just for the winners and spoiled them and their families with special discounts, free t-shirts, food and water, plus their own personal shopper! Our All Volleyball Team Members helped design outfits, get sizes, and do one of the things we do best: serve our customers. Only this time, we did it in a more individual setting.
The holiday shopping season kicked off this past Friday as most of us know. All Volleyball thought this would be the perfect weekend to host our Private Shopping Event…because after battling the hustle and the bustle at other stores (and the not-so-cheerful crowds there too!), wouldn’t it be nice for a store to put all the attention back where it belongs: on our customers!
It was a very fun afternoon and a great way to end a holiday weekend. We are so thankful for our customers! Thank you to all who entered and to all who participated! We hope you had a fabulous time…I know we did!
On this most thankful Thursday, we are thankful for family…our volleyball family!
The coaches, teammates, club directors, team moms and dads, uniform coordinators, referees, trainers, conditioning coaches, camp coordinators, customers, vendors, and all who make this volleyball world so wonderful.
Volleyball is more than just a game, and without these people, it wouldn’t be possible.
Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!! Who are you going to thank today?!
In honor of Thankful Thursday (and Throwback Thursday), I thought it would be a great idea to bring back one of our favorite posts. Please enjoy and pass it on!
Dear Volleyball Dad,
I know sometimes I don’t say this enough…but, thanks.
Thank you for always waking me up on the weekends in time to leave for my tournaments. I know I can be very grumpy in the morning!
Thank you for shuttling me to and from practice, to and from my games, and to and from my tournaments. We have spent countless hours in the car traveling all over…sometimes late into the night. You never seem to mind…well, if you do, I never notice because I am most likely asleep!
Thank you for always getting me my water bottle when I’ve forgotten to bring it over to the bench. I know I need to remember it more, but it is pretty funny watching you sneak it over to me!
Thank you for coming to all of my games, sitting on those hard bleachers from the first serve of the match to game point.
Thank you for the big hugs you give me at the end of the day, even though I am a sweaty “monster” as you always say!
Thank you for going shopping with me for my volleyball gear. I promise to try and wash my stinky knee pads more often. Oh, that reminds me! I think my feet grew, I need new shoes again…
I know I roll my eyes a lot at your lame jokes. But you are my Volleyball Dad. You are always there to support me, to encourage me, to help me. I know that no matter what the score or how much of an “off” day I’m having, you are always there for me.
You have given me every opportunity to succeed in my favorite sport, and I just want to say “thanks!” And, seriously, I think I need new shoes
Happy Father’s Day!
Your Volleyball Kid.
