Many people today agree keeping young people active and engaged is important. Participation rates are up nationwide, but the tough economy has put tremendous pressure on funding at all levels, from colleges to high schools and youth programs.
Volleyball is quickly making a name for itself throughout the country and in Central Iowa! Powered by our own outstanding local athletes as well as surrounding Midwest talent, Iowa Central Volleyball is rebuilding its program. We have recruited student-athletes from our surrounding communities. These are great girls that work hard on the court as well as in the classroom. We are proud to have the opportunity to coach these players and help them with their first two years of college. Unfortunately due to the continuing budget cuts, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the volleyball program to continue to pay for a variety of essential costs, including travel, equipment and gear, in addition to needed updates to our facilities.
At Iowa Central we feel we are a part of something bigger than just the time we spend on the court, not only have we received numerous individual and team academic awards, but we also look to give back to the community by adopting a family for the holidays, working with toys for tots, go out to the area schools to participate in the “read across America” and “get out and play” campaigns along with the paint-a-thon, habitat for humanity and numerous other community activities we participate in and contribute to.
We feel so strongly about what we are teaching these young adults that we are reaching out for help to gain financial support for our program. Any amount you can share will be put to good use. Your gift will make it possible for Iowa Central Volleyball to continue to make a positive impact on the lives of some remarkable student-athletes as well as providing positive role models to the areas youth.
Your generosity means a lot to us and makes a difference. Thank you!
