Giving Back

At Vitesse, we are a team of leaders.   Players are expected to think like leaders and feel responsible for the collective.   Each player should identify a task that benefits under their care.   That could be but not limited to picking up equipment, providing reminders, covering a play or challenge others to do better.    
More importantly, we expect our members being leaders in school and community.   They 'thank' the teacher after each class; they pick up trash even if it is not there own; they need to be kind and friendly to others; and reach out to projects in need.
Projects we have helped with are visiting eldry who lost their family; planting trees through Arbor Day Foundation; St Jude's and Duke cancer research. 
Parents who are in the position to help to enrich the atmosphere, at the field there is a task chart outlining the club's needs.
Inspired through the fight against breast cancer, we chose PURPLE as the color for leadership.  Our coaches wear purple shirts, captains wear purple arm bands, parents wear purple hats and we provide purple bracelets to those improving the conditions for everybody around.
