Character Goals


is something that is built, developed and happens naturally over time between: coach to athlete, athlete to athlete, coach to coach, and team to team. There must be a sense of trust, understanding and caring for trust to happen.


an intense feeling of deep affection; agape – is patient and kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. … Love never ends 1 Cor. 13:4-8a. We run this club to serve others with love. We want each athlete to feel loved!


a group sharing certain characteristics, a family of languages – our vehicle is volleyball but the goal is to develop deep relationships with ALL athletes. The saying it takes a village to raise a child is 100% true – the goal is to have 1 adult form a meaningful, personal relationship with every athlete who walks through our doors.
