To All Volleyball Participants,
On behalf of the USA Deaf Sports Federation, we are pleased to welcome all the athletes, team officials, families and friends to the 2016 PANAMDES Volleyball Regional Qualifying Tournament at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC for the 2017 Summer Deaflympics.
As always, we expect immense competition with an equal amount of sportsmanship to go along with each and every volleyball match. These competitors without question are tremendous athletes, but even more so they are terrific persons who are role models to other persons. It is our goal to provide these participants with the best experience possible, so that their time in Washington, DC will be one they will always remember. Organizing a tournament like this one is a very time consuming endeavor. Please join us in thanking Patrick O’Brien and his Organizing Committee and volunteers for all of their efforts in making the competition possible.
Please enjoy the competition and support our athletes.
All the best,
Jack C. Lamberton
USA Deaf Sports Federation
