Congratulations George, on this remarkable milestone!!!
GEVA would like to recognize a former GEVA player, Oleg Chinyayev, who won a silver medal in the Men's 45+ Division at this year's USA Volleyball Open National Championships.
Oleg was born in 1970 in Tashkent (Uzbekistan) and started playing volleyball at an early age. By the age of 16, he joined the USSR National Juniors team. He played a few seasons in the Top Soviet League in the late 80s. He immigrated to the USA by the end of the 90s. He organized a volleyball team from skilled Western European players and started to play in local tournaments. From 2002-2007 his team Brooklyn HES played mostly in GEVA tournaments. He was actively playing volleyball and participating in local tournaments for at least 17 years. He put in a lot of effort to reach excellent physical shape after the age 40.
This year he played in the 2017 USA Volleyball Open National Championships with team Canada Fog and won a silver medal in the 45+ division. It was his first appearance at the National Championships. With the volleyball skills and physical ability that he showed, he was invited to join Team USA 45+ to participate in in the 2017 Global Cup World Senior Volleyball Championship, being held in Loutraki, Greece in August.
Congratulations to all of the players that participated or are participating in the 2017 USA Volleyball Open National Championships (Minneapolis, MN from 26-30 May).

For those who have been playing in USA Volleyball (USAV) events over the years, you have benefited from the most obvious item; that is, being able to play in USAV events. Not to take anything away from any other organization/event/league/etc. you might be involved with, we would like to remind you of some of the things that comes with your membership.
The full list of benefits is available at the link below from USAV. We wanted to point out two very important benefits.
Are you ready for the 2015-16 season? As usual, there are some new (or changed) rules to consider. The major change has to do with contacting the net. Basically, contacting the net (the ENTIRE net) is a fault unless you are NOT in the action of playing the ball.
