VAV is a Community/Police Engagement initiative designed to utilize tennis to bring youth and police officers together for physical activity, informal mentoring, relationship building, and the seamless delivery of life-skills curriculum.

"Friday night was a great opportunity to engage in an impactful community program," said Head Coach Amy Bryant. "Volley Against Violence allowed our student-athletes to connect with children from lower income at-risk families through tennis. It was a tremendous experience for everyone involved!"
