Congrats to two outstanding student/athletes from UNO Volleyball Club that have been named: Semper Fidelis All-Americans! Proud of these young ladies and this accomplishment!
he title of United States Marine is earned, never given. The same is true of a Semper-Fidelis All-American. Becoming an All-American puts you in elite company and allows opportunities that will open the doors to future success. Proudly presented by the United States Marine Corps, the Semper Fidelis All-American Program recognizes high school students who face life’s battles with the conviction and determination to succeed. These students embody the same fighting spirit that Marines stand for by taking on the challenges of succeeding academically while bettering their communities and excelling in athletics and extracurricular activities. They have turned obstacles into victories through drive and passion and will be recognized for their achievements at the exclusive Battles Won Academy.
SEMPER FIDELIS ALL-AMERICAN PROGRAM DETAILS:
As a celebration of their success, selected Semper Fidelis All-Americans will receive an all-expenses paid trip to attend the four-day Battles Won Academy, held in Washington D.C. in July 2018. There they will participate in daily workouts, an immersive Marine Corps experience on base in Quantico, a community service event, teambuilding outings, and a tour of our Nation’s Capital (check out the daily recap video for the 2017 Battles Won Academy experience here). The selected Semper Fidelis All-Americans will also have the opportunity to network with an elite circle of speakers from all walks of life and various industries who will share their inspiring stories of fighting and winning battles in their own lives. Speakers from 2017 included: Carli Lloyd, Sage Steele, Adeline Gray, Rye Barcott, Cal Ripken, Jr., Christian McCaffrey, Aki Zapata, Ashton Eaton and Verice Bennett.
In recognition of the importance of building a support system to enable the success of the next generation, each All-American will be given the opportunity to invite a mentor of their choosing from their school, sports team or a community organization to attend the event alongside them. Selected mentors may not be of familial relation to the student. Throughout the weekend’s activities, students and mentors will be required to step out of their normal comfort zones, and all attendees should be prepared to participate in a high level of physical activity. Finally, becoming a Semper Fidelis-All American will make students eligible for select scholarship opportunities only available to program participants.
As a Junior Olympic (J.O.) program, we are committed to providing quality physical and psychological training and competition--locally, regionally and nationally. This competitive athletic experience enhances social development, contributes to mental and physical health and teaches the values of teamwork, responsibility, self-discipline and self-motivation.
Our primary goal at Uno is to promote and develop youth volleyball, and assist our athletes in achieving personal and athletic success. And, since 1984 we've made it our business to do just that. We are dedicated to giving all members the chance to improve their many unique skills associated with this exciting and demanding sport. In addition, we are interested in our players' personal development as well.
Uno is a successful training program today because of the committed coaching staff and supportive families.
We are dedicated to the further advancement of our athletes and encourage them to continue playing in college, if that is their goal. Uno is proud of the fact that they have assisted over 65 volleyball scholarship recipients.
