EKVC award recipients named for 2021
The East Kootenay Volleyball Club (EKVC) would like to congratulate, Addie Watkins and Kyla Carlson for being the recipients of EKVC’s Service Award.
The EKVC Service Award is awarded for exemplary leadership, sportsmanship and service to the support of EKVC, fellow athletes and the volleyball community.
Watkins and Carlson played volleyball both at a high school level and with EKVC since Grade 7 starting with the 13U Girls team. Some of the services they provided to support the Club would be working as lines-person at tournaments, helping set up and take down volleyball nets and picking up the balls from the court after practice.
Watkins said, “During my time with the club, I developed lifelong friendships, built confidence in my volleyball skills, and had the opportunity to travel to various tournaments, including Nationals. I would like to thank East Kootenay Volleyball Club for the opportunities over the years and for this service award.”
“My time with EKVC has brought many things my way such as new friends, great coaches, positive development and most of all great memories. I feel like I have developed so much not only as an athlete but, also a person,” said Carlson.
EKVC has been offering Awards to athletes since 2012. EKVC welcomes athletes throughout the East Kootenay from Elkford, Sparwood, Fernie, Creston, Invermere, Golden, Kimberley, Cranbrook and region.
Established in 1997, the club provides a foundation of athletic excellence by promoting indoor and outdoor volleyball for all ages to successfully compete in local, regional, provincial and national volleyball events.
