KODA Volleyball Club applies all of the policies set forth by USA Volleyball and Safe Sport as their guiding policies and procedures.  Additional information will be provided for staff, parents, and athletes. We ask that all members of the KODA Family are diligent in being the eyes and ears, and that if you see something, or you have any suspicions that you take action immediately. Contacting local authorities is always the best first step, and then let the Club Director know (315) 727-6296. If you see something (or hear something) say something! We take this VERY seriously. 

Preventing Bullying, What Great Coaches Need to Know

KODA will NOT tolerate any member of the KODA Family to physically, socially, or verbally cause harm to another member of KODA or any competitor. The consequences could be as severe as immediate removal from the team and club. KODA also will not tolerate behavior that negatively impacts the teams safety and unity. We ask all members of this family to say something if you see something. A text to the Club Director (315) 727-6296 that simply states "I have a concern, please call" is all you need to do.

“I believe ability can get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.” – John Wooden
