Sport Massage – Making it to the Big Leagues – Edmonton 2018
Volleyball Canada is bringing the Nationals right here to Edmonton….Presented by Inter Pipeline, this event is expected to be the largest Nationals to date with more than 10,000 participants expected and all in one large venue being held at our own Edmonton Expo Centre. A festival year for sure and its right here in the capital City of Edmonton.
While amazing for our city… it is equally amazing for our own local massage therapy business, Custom Bodies Fitness and Massage.
It is an honour to be working with Mizuno Canada, in the “Blue Room” at the 2018 National Volleyball Championships. Having these National championships right here in Edmonton is not only a boost for the City of Edmonton, but having Custom Bodies Fitness and Massage chosen as the sole therapy provider for the coaches of Mizuno Canada kind of makes us, a group of students and newly register massage therapists practicing sports massage, feel as though we are “Making it to the Big Leagues” in terms of sports massage.
Custom Bodies Fitness and Massage will be providing massage therapy to the coaches of this event but as part of the bigger picture we will be providing additional services as needed to some olympic level athletes and taking in the incredible volleyball action as our National champions are crowned in all age categories. That’s not all as we will be part of experiencing some pretty amazing international matches happening being contested by our own National teams.
History of Volleyball
Volleyball is a sport that was officially born into the world of sport in 1895 by a man named William Morgan who worked with a local YMCA in Holyoke, Mass.
Basically, William Morgan took things from tennis, basketball and baseball, changed the rules with the idea that he would be creating an activity that was less vigorous and more suitable for older members at the YMCA where he was director. He also wanted this “new” sport to require some athletic skill. William Morgan called it “Mintonette” and a new sport was born. In later years, there was a suggestion that the name be changed to “Volleyball” and William Morgan agreed.
