USA Volleyball has created a message of “Athletes First” here is info from USA Voleyball

For membership, our core key messaging of “Athletes First” to differentiate USA Volleyball as an organization was developed as part of a complete competitive analysis that was conducted last summer. It focuses on core aspects of our membership key messaging in comparison to our competitors’ developed in conjunction with the RVA Marketing & Branding Committee.

The “Your Path Begins Here” strategy and campaign that we developed is based on that analysis focusing on “Athletes First” with the core pillars of safety, community, development & wellbeing.

 Your Path Begins Here

This strategy is active and in place across some of our key digital media touch points and we are in the process of taking a deeper dive to expand on this in new channels and applications:

  • USA Volleyball Website > Membership
    • https://usavolleyball.org/membership/
    • Anthem video featured at the top of the page with description of our core Athletes First membership messaging
    • All regions are encouraged to link to this page and use this same key messaging on their own websites and digital channels – let us know how we can help with this
    • We also have a fantastic Play webpage, which gives a great introduction to the sport of volleyball overall

Your Path Begins Here Anthem Video

The anthem video that we developed was scripted and edited in house by our team, and includes the voices of National Team athletes Erik Shoji, Sydney Satchell, Tri Bourne and Nicky Nieves.

We are in the process of making updates to these videos to feature our Olympians and Paralympians and will be providing updates soon.

Currently have 3 versions of the video available

  • Your Path Begins Here – Full Length
  • Your Path Begins Here – 30s
  • Your Path Begins Here – Full Length, Region (custom version that includes a Region logo prepared for each individual Region)
    • You can embed this video prominently on your website, in email marketing and social media – if you need any help with this, feel free to reach out

Path to the Podium

As a part of our Olympic and Paralympic campaign, we produced more than 15 additional videos with our National Team athletes speaking about their careers and journeys in the sport continuing our Path to the Podium series. We have updated our Path to the Podium webpage with some of our most recent videos and encourage you to share and promote across your Regional digital media channels. If you’d like to feature a specific video on your website or social media for an athlete who is from your Region, feel free to reach out and we can provide you with the video file to post or embed.

We’ll also be working on a new Path to the Podium video as a compilation of these stories focusing on each athlete’s early involvement in volleyball (coming soon).
