Comments Off on New Region Management Announcement

As you may have heard, IVA’s board of directors recently completed their search for a new management team. And I couldn’t be more honored and delighted that they selected our group to lead this organization into the upcoming season and beyond.

Thank you to those who have reached out to us with your encouragement—we’ve been overwhelmed by your support!


I’m Jason Badell, the new CEO and commissioner, and I’ll be working in tandem with Mike Deaver, executive vice president, who will handle many of the association’s operational and marketing needs.

Mike and I have been involved with volleyball in this region since 1996. We’ve marketed and promoted collegiate volleyball for both men and women; worked on bids and hosting for the recent USA Volleyball regional and national events; and offered consulting for local, state, and national organizations. Above all, we love this sport and want to see the game grow to its fullest for both athletes and fans.

We also have three new executive board members who bring decades of business and management expertise to IVA:

Deirdre Hill is general manager of Datatix/Smith’sTix, Utah’s largest locally operated ticket distributor. In her 18 years at the company, she has directed ticketing and management for thousands of events, including all ticketing operations for the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Rob Neilson is VP of business development for Volley Metrics. He was an associate head coach for BYU men’s volleyball for eight years and an assistant coach for the USA Volleyball boys’ national team during the 2011 season.

Tim Goalen is co-owner and COO of Rockwell Watches. He has spent eight years in operations, event management, marketing, and sponsorships for the company, working with all major sports leagues and events, including the Dew Tour, MotoX Tour, AMA Pro Racing, and other organizations.


Our top priority is serving you, the membership—clubs, players, parents, coaches, and officials—and helping you develop the best talent possible.   We plan to focus on three vital activities:   (1) Sponsor and promote competitions and tournaments across the region. (2) Educate and train coaches and officials through clinics, seminars, and other resources. (3) Develop players and coaches in the High Performance Programs for Beach and Indoor.   To start, we’re planning a clinic for coaches and officials this fall, and we’ll launch a tournament schedule in January.   We’re also updating IVA’s website and social media pages so you can more easily access the information you need.


We want to fill a number of positions on the advisory board for the coming year, including members to represent the following areas:

1. ​Professional league

2. Universities and colleges


4. Southern Utah

5. Idaho

​6. Policy/rules/competition​

7. Officials

8. Media/​sponsors

9. Diversity and equality in sports

We’ll announce the nomination and application process along with the deadline soon. The general membership will then vote on advisory board members. Watch your email for more details.

Thank you for your support and patience as we make this transition. We look forward to working with you this year and making it a spectacular season for volleyball in the Intermountain Region.
