Inventor Patents Soccer Volley Product to Enhance the Beautiful Game
PR Log - Jan 31, 2013 - GREENWICH, Conn. -- Volley King, LLC is pleased to introduce its company and patented soccer product, the Volley King. A soccer product company, Volley King was created from the desire to see athletes thrive in the sport by providing technical training tools. The Volley King is named after the kick which the device helps to perfect and after Morris' soccer hero, King Pélé. This kick is known as the most powerful and difficult kick to perform in soccer. In fact, during the last World Cup, approximately 40 percent of goals scored were volleys or half-volleys, thus the importance of this dynamic kick.
Desmond V. Morris, creator and founder of Volley King, LLC, is an experienced athlete, coach, and physical education expert. He holds a National "A" license in coaching from the United States Soccer Federation. Morris played for the Luso American Soccer Association in the United States, Hairoun Lion (a Professional Caribbean Team), and for the National Vincentian Team in the West Indies. He has coached four championship teams; two State Cup Championships and two Region Premier Championships. It is said that he is an avid, and at times strict, technician of the game.
As a U.S. college player, Morris longed to see the sport develop in the U.S. to where it is at now. His passion for the sport is intense and his knowledge of the game quite vast. He designed his own coaching technique, the Touchmaster System, to help students master their footwork. And now, he has developed a product to ensure greater volley kick success and increased goal scoring in the game.
Morris' former coach, Tony DiCicco, Former USA National Team Coach, says "I am asked to endorse a lot of soccer products that come into the marketplace but unless I feel a product has something special to offer, I won't put my name on it. The Volley King is a product that I endorse and have witnessed, first hand, how it improves a player's ability to hit side-volley shots. In itself it won't make the player, but it is certainly a piece of the puzzle. Try Volley King and you will see why I am excited about this product."
The Volley King is for soccer enthusiasts who want to train year round. This product is portable and can be used at home or on fields. It is designed for solo or team practice and offers the individual various levels of complexity in height, difficulty, and expertise. By creating devices that specifically focus on polishing and progressing skills, Morris and the Volley King team, hope to advance the technique of soccer athletes everywhere.
The problem for Morris was in the amount of volleys missed in a game. "Missed goals and clearances- if players learn the 'overhead kick, bicycle kick, or chilena,' these kicks will help defenders clear goal lines and balls played over their heads. Needless to say, the Volley King teaches the art of those skills, plus goal scoring, and goalie clearance- the volley kick affects every area of the game."
Morris also shared that he loved watching King Pélé play the beautiful game, as a youth in St. Vincent & the Grenadines. He hopes to one day meet his soccer hero who encouraged the hearts of young soccer players everywhere. Soccer took Morris from Connecticut to Davis & Elkins, a West Virginia college that took soccer seriously, and recruited a group of terrific international players. Morris' love of the sport has not diminished after all these years. He is humbled to have his innovative soccer product patented and excited to launch the Volley King due out later this year and with future products in the pipeline.
