Welcome to the Diversity & Inclusion curriculum for CEVA Club Directors and Coaches. This curriculum consists of articles and videos meant to educate you on topics surrounding bullying, racism, and exclusion, as well as other topics and subject matter pertinent to youth sports.
CEVA'S ORGANIZATIONAL STATEMENT
The Columbia Empire Volleyball Association (CEVA) values the principles of diversity and inclusion and encourages all of our member clubs and participants to do the same. We will promote these values in our organizational culture and programming.
CEVA believes our membership should focus on athletes, coaches, officials and parents’ skill sets, work ethic and competitive spirit, not their race, sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
CEVA strives to create an environment that is free from discrimination or exclusion based on race, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious affiliations, or other personal attributes. We also seek to end bullying, cyber-bulling, hazing, harassment, and offensive conduct in all forms. These are actions that are not consummate with our organizational philosophy, nor with the culture we will create in our region.
CEVA will seek to implement policies and programming to help educate our membership about these values, and we will encourage all participants in our programs to display these values both on and off the court.
Each page of this website will take you to a separate article or video. At the end, you'll be asked to enter some basic information about yourself and your club affiliation. Once you've completed the entire curriculum, you will receive an e-mail with a certificate of completion.
In total, this curriculum will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. You will NOT have the opportunity to save your progress and return at another time - this is set up to be completed in its entirety in one sitting.
We designed this curriculum to make people think about their own actions, as well as actions they've seen in others at our events. We encourage you to be honest with yourself, introspective about your own actions and beliefs, and look for opportunities to affect positive change within your club and team. We hope you find the time you spend on this website productive.
