Triangle Volleyball Club selected as S.T.R.I.V.E award finalist

For the second time in five years the National Council of Youth Sports recognizes Triangle

Morrisville, NC, May 25, 2018: For the second time in just five years Triangle Volleyball Club has been selected among the five finalists for the National Council of Youth Sports’ [NCYS], S.T.R.I.V.E. Organization of the Year award. The S.T.R.I.V.E. Award [Sports Teach Respect, Initiative, Values, and Excellence] was established in 2012 and is presented annually by NCYS and award corporate sponsor, AIG.  The five finalists are selected from amongst the many nominations by an NCYS judging panel comprised of youth sports industry leaders.

This award recognizes organizations that embrace a "kids first" approach, evidenced by their implementation of recognized best practices and policies that protect kids and promote safety within their organization. Criteria for selection includes demonstrating a heartfelt passion, commitment and contagious spirit for helping kids succeed in youth sports activities while maintaining a commitment to established safety procedures. This award praises organizations' commitment to kids' safety and health, demonstrating to young people that it is possible for Sports to Teach Respect, Initiative, Values and Excellence without compromising safety.

Triangle’s is one of only two organizations selected twice as a S.T.R.I.V.E. award finalist and is a result of Triangle’s continued commitment to injury prevention through investment of considerable energy and resources in programs that advance athlete safety by minimizing the injury risk potential of athletes. “We are excited to hear that the NCYS selected Triangle again as a youth sports leader in the area of athlete health and safety,” stated Sherry Fadool, Triangle’s Executive Director. Fadool added, “Our administration, coaching staff, strength and conditioning team, and physical therapy partners share a common goal to keep athletes in the game and on the court. Through active identification and correction of weaknesses in an athlete’s fundamental movement and mobility patterns while also addressing any early signs of our sports’ most common overuse-type injuries we can better insure that our athlete’s participation in sport is lasting and enjoyable.”

The “Five-for-STRIVE" finalists' profiles will be featured on the S.T.R.I.V.E. Organization of the Year webpage and promoted via social media. The S.T.R.I.V.E. award winner will be selected through a public voting process that runs from June 1 through June 22. The S.T.R.I.V.E. award winner will be recognized at a ceremony held in their home town where they will receive a $5,000 award.
