The popularity of the volleyball uniform reveal video has been growing
among female collegiate volleyball teams the last few years.
Each season, as teams form and get new gear, bags, shoes, spandex,
jerseys and sweats there's an increasing trend to want to show them off to
the public and their social media followers.

gear in a spectacular presentation on video.

get paid extra for appearing in these commercials!
Funny thing...the uniform brands featured are Mizuno, Under Armour,
Adidas and Nike.
