Triangle VBC Named S.T.R.I.V.E Organization of the Year

USAV’s Triangle Volleyball Club, a member of the Carolina Region, has recently been recognized as the 2018 S.T.R.I.V.E. (Sports Teach Respect, Initiative, Values, and Excellence) Organization of the Year by the National Council of Youth Sports (NCYS) and American International Group, Inc. (AIG). Triangle Volleyball Club’s commitment to prioritizing the safety and well-being of its young athletes played a significant role in securing this prestigious award.

Serving the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill area of North Carolina, Triangle Volleyball Club stands out for its unwavering dedication to the belief that sports can truly shape and develop the character of young individuals. The club firmly believes in utilizing the power of the youth sport experience to instill important life lessons and prepare athletes for a future beyond the court.

The STRIVE Award for Organization of the Year, now in its seventh year, celebrates youth and amateur sports organizations that not only display a genuine passion for providing opportunities but also prioritize the safety of young athletes. Triangle Volleyball Club’s comprehensive injury prevention program exemplifies this commitment. Their approach includes investing in safe training environments through ample gym space, identifying and addressing areas of weakness or risk for injury, educating athletes on proper movement and mobility techniques, and providing guidance on nutrition, hydration, age-appropriate strength and conditioning, and rest and recovery methods.

Triangle Volleyball Club’s dedication to the health and safety of its athletes has not gone unnoticed. The club has established itself as a leading organization in girls’ junior club volleyball, all while maintaining a strong focus on the overall well-being of its players. In addition to their exceptional on-court performance, the club has made significant contributions through service projects, including working with disabled individuals through sitting volleyball.

The search for the 2018 STRIVE Organization of the Year Award winner began in March 2018, with a nomination period calling for youth and amateur sports organizations that have implemented at least three health and safety initiatives. During a 22-day online voting period in June, the general public had the opportunity to vote for their favorite Organization of the Year from a pool of five finalists.

Wayne B. Moss, executive director of NCYS, expressed his gratitude to NCYS sponsor AIG for their support in recognizing organizations that prioritize the health, wellness, and safety of young athletes. Moss commended Triangle Volleyball Club for their exceptional character development program and their commitment to implementing essential safety procedures. He emphasized that Triangle Volleyball Club serves as a model program, effectively balancing the importance of life skills and sport skills. Moss is confident that the club will continue to advance the critical role these qualities play in creating a positive youth sports experience and fostering a safer society.

Congratulations to everyone at Triangle Volleyball Club on this well-deserved recognition!
