The word that has been thrown around a lot recently is "normalcy".
How do we get back to it? What will a return to normalcy look like? And on and on. For me, as I sit here and write the What's Inside article for the 2020 VYPE Houston Volleyball Preview Magazine - this is a little return to "normalcy" for me and all of us at VYPE.
Getting back to sports will bring a sense of normalcy to athletes, coaches and parents across the City of Houston! My hope is that seeing the 2020 VYPE Houston Volleyball Preview Magazine arriving in your mailboxes in the next few weeks will bring the beginning of that sense of "normalcy".
