I think it would be nice if there were an NCAA men's preseason tournament
somewhere where there is already a base of support for the women's
game. Nebraska, Illinois, and other places come to mind.
As far as I know, there is the UCSB volley*** in January and teams
occasionally tour Hawaii. This is preaching to the choir. Maybe such
a midwestern tournament could help jumpstart boys programs in junior
high and high school. It would also be good for the existing men's collegiate
club teams to play and improve.
Beats me where the money would come from. Maybe the NVL would be
interested since it has (I hope) sponsors and this would help to
generate interest in their professional product.
