VC United is proud to introduce our Core Values as we embark on this new journey.
Our core values are what will support our vision, will shape the culture and reflect what VC United values. They will be used to create our training methodology, program offerings, to select our players, and to establish our philosophy with our players and their families every day.
Core Values - #wearevcunited
vibrant: full of energy and enthusiasm
To be a part of VC United, we must bring energy and enthusiasm to everything we do. Training, competition, preparation, nutrition and more.
competitive: showing a fighting disposition
VC United will compete. In practice, we will compete. We will also make sure that our teams are playing in a competitive schedule against other clubs that will push our players to new limits.
unique: being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else
VC United will bring a unique approach to everything our program offers. There are thousands of junior volleyball clubs. We will make sure there is only one VC United.
Direct. Simple. Unconditional. VC United will care. We will develop a culture where we put each other first and we will ensure that each person inside our program no matter what role they play understands that they are part of VC United. This fundamental principal will allow VC United to become a family environment where players will never leave ... only advance.
innovative: being or producing something like nothing done or experienced or created before
VC United will bring a new approach to club volleyball by providing cutting edge services and support to our players. We will explore all options through training devices, technology, training styles, and more to offer a one-of-a-kind experience for our players.
teamwork: when a group of people work together cohesively, towards a common goal
To be a part of VC United, we all must prioritize the core values, the mission, and the vision. We must put aside ego and personal agendas to accomplish something great. We will do so by creating a positive working atmosphere, and supporting each other to combine individual strengths to enhance team performance.
elite: selected as the best; a select part of a group that is superior to the rest in terms of ability or qualities
We must strive to be elite within the framework of the programs we are a part of. No matter what program our players or coaches are participating in we will look for elite performance relative to the expectations of that program. This will carry over to how we evaluate players, coaches and staff each season.
dedicated: devoted to a cause or ideal or purpose
We must strive to find the players, coaches and staff who will unconditionally commit to the core values, mission and vision for the program, their team and their journey with VC United. We must hold each other accountable to that commitment and strive to ensure our dedication is both perceived and real.
To develop elite volleyball players at the collegiate and scholastic development levels in a unique, challenging environment through innovative training, exposure to competition and positive interaction with coaches, teammates and families.
To establish the Rockford area teams, players and coaches as the standard of excellence for junior volleyball throughout the country and the Midwest.
