The Louisville volleyball team is spending the next couple of weeks traveling around Europe. Their first stop is in Milan, Italy, where they landed early Thursday morning. After Milan the team will travel to Venice before visiting countries around central Europe such as Slovenia, Austria, and Czech Republic.
The team will be traveling with Bring It Promotions (BIP) which is a full service volleyball agency with partners and staff across the globe. BIP specializes in international volleyball tours and events as well as professional career development.
During their travels the team has six matches on the schedule. Their opponents have not been announced. This will go towards experience for the team before the season starts in the fall.
Other than playing matches the team plans to go sight-seeing and experience cultures from around Europe. Coach Anne Kordes expressed on Facebook the need to find activities for the team to do and places for the team to see while traveling.
The team is scheduled to arrive home on Monday, May 30th. Scrimmages and pre-season matches begin August 20th and the regular season is scheduled to begin August 26th. Gocards.com has the entire schedule.
