At RVVA, we are committed to fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment for all participants, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, or race. We firmly believe that diversity and respect are essential pillars that strengthen our community and enrich our collective experience. To that end, we hereby declare our commitment to the following principles:
We celebrate and value the diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives that our participants bring to the volleyball league. We strive to create an environment where everyone feels respected, supported, and included.
Zero Tolerance for Discrimination
We have a zero-tolerance policy towards any form of discrimination, harassment, or offensive behavior directed at individuals. Any such behavior will be met with appropriate action, up to and including expulsion from the league.
We strive to make our volleyball league accessible to all individuals. We will work to minimize financial barriers and provide assistance to those who need it, ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to participate and enjoy the sport we love.
We recognize that creating an inclusive environment is an ongoing process. We will actively seek feedback from our participants and stakeholders, and use this feedback to continually improve our practices and policies.
We are committed to ensuring that our leadership and decision-making bodies reflect the diversity of our community. We will actively seek to include individuals from different backgrounds in these roles, empowering them to contribute to the growth and direction of the league.
By embracing these principles, we aim to cultivate an inclusive volleyball community where every participant feels valued, respected, and empowered to reach their full potential. Together, we can build a strong and supportive community that celebrates the uniqueness of each individual and fosters a love for the sport of volleyball that knows no boundaries.
