Meaning of Synergy

You may ask yourself... what does "Synergy" mean. We have heard the following at tournaments and events where the club has been exposed and thought we would share with you what others thought "Synergy" meant.

  • Synergy - Simple Energy
  • Synergy - Oh they just dont know how to spell Energy
  • Synergy - Oh they must be bad people and go to church a lot.
  • Synergy - Oh I think they are making up a new word.

In fact, "Synergy" is a word found in the english dictionary. It is defined as:

syn·er·gy
n. pl. syn·er·gies

  1. The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.
  2. Cooperative interaction among groups, especially among the acquired subsidiaries or merged parts of a corporation, that creates an enhanced combined effect.

The club has a foundation based on the principle of this definition. We believe that:

the actions of the group are worth more than the sum of each individuals' actions.

This is a pure definition of teamwork, which is why our club is known as Synergy Volleyball Club

Simple Guidelines

Some Simple Guidelines:

  • Be on time for things. We should be on the floor ready to go as soon as the floor is available.
  • Run-In...Run-Out. Conditioning is done throughout the practice. When you are called in ...run...or the team will run while you watch.
  • You Talk--Coach Listens. Coach Talks -- You Listen. We Both Talk -- The Team Runs.
  • If you are confused or don't understand -- Ask a coach.
  • When a ball rolls away. Run so we can play.
  • You are not alone...so when in smaller groups...the group runs to get the balls.
  • There is no "I" in team. There is no "U" in team. There is a "ME" in team...but if you make it about "ME" - YOU won't be happy.
  • If you cannot make it...The Coach needs to know...EARLY
  • Play Hard -- Play Smart -- But most important...HAVE FUN! (George Light)
