Celebrating Easter with Competition

The USA Volleyball Gulf Coast Region is celebrating Easter this year with a one-day competition at the Foley Event Center. The He Has Risen Easter Tournament will take place on April 3.

Gulf Coast Region Commissioner Philip Bryant said the event gives teams the opportunity to play and celebrate the holiday all at the same time.

“Playing on the Saturday of Easter Weekend gives an opportunity for teams to compete in a volleyball tournament in Foley, Alabama as well as be able to attend their church on Easter Sunday,” Bryant said. “Each player that is participating will receive a New Testament Bible as a participation gift.”

The girls and boys club teams hail from Mississippi, Florida, Louisiana, and Alabama. Bryant said the idea of a one-day tournament wasn’t the only draw, teams were very excited about playing in Foley.

“It’s the best location on the entire Gulf Coast to host a volleyball tournament,” Bryant said. “There’s an amazing staff and excellent court design. Foley offers families great amenities of shopping, dining, and recreational enjoyment when not playing volleyball.”

The Gulf Coast Region He Has Risen – Easter Tournament runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. For more information about this or any FST event check out our events page.
