 Redondo Beach, CA. – July 6, 2020 – Smack Sportswear is very happy to announce a three-year partnership with two New England Volleyball Region Convention Center tournaments. Smack will be the title sponsor for Winterfest, held over three consecutive weekends in January at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford and SpikeFest, held over the President’s Day Weekend in Providence, RI and Springfield, MA.  This partnership will allow Smack to continue supporting the sports’ young athletes at every level, both indoor and on the beach.

Smack will have a major presence at both events, allowing club directors and coaches from over 700 teams to view our high quality team apparel as well as create their own custom designs. Smack staff also offer free team pics in the Smack Photo Booth, as well as give athletes and attendees the opportunity to win prizes in the vertical jump or speed spike contests.

Two Time USA Olympian and Smack Eastern Region Manager Donald Suxho stated: “This is a monumental partnership for Smack. New England is near and dear to my heart as my family set up roots in Boston in 1995. My father Peter & brother Rando Suxho have been coaching for Beantown & Natick High School for many years as well. I am very excited to see the growth of volleyball there and I applaud the NERVA Leadership as well as the volleyball community for their hard work.”
