First Point announces partnership with NJCAA to encourage 2-year-colleges to

Extending Our Reach – Initiative to Increase Diversity

In 2017, the Board of Directors of First Point Volleyball Foundation decided that increasing diversity in boys’ and men’s volleyball was one of the Foundation’s strategic initiatives.

Over the past two years, First Point Volleyball Foundation’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, Kenny Rogers has convened groups of volleyball experts in Chicago, Colorado Springs and Los Angeles, to discuss obstacles and constraints that are preventing more boys of color from playing competitive volleyball. These summit participants have also been asked to brainstorm potential recommendations for growing the game among boys and men of color. The Report and Recommendations resulting from these meetings can be downloaded here.
