Gator Volleyball in the
Dominican Republic — Los Caimanes

Los Caimanos Volleyball LogoThrough the Efforts of a Former Gator, Volleyball Thrives in a Small Dominican Community

What started with just one volleyball has grown into something larger than anyone could imagine. Under the direction of former Gator, Jenn Macy, the community of Manabao is able to experience the game of volleyball with equipment provided by the Gator Volleyball program and its supporters.

Macy is on assignment in the Dominican Republic with the Peace Corps and brought one volleyball in the hopes she could find a place to play in a country dominated by baseball. What she found was a high interest in the sport but equipment was sparse to say the least. In Manabao, a mountainside agricultural town of about 2000 people, community members frequently gather to play — sometimes even through rain showers — on a badly worn concrete court with an old make-shift net. With such a dedication to the game, Macy reached out to the Gators to see if anything could be done to provide equipment to the community. What followed was an outpouring of support.

Los Caimanos Volleyball LogoThrough emails, phone calls, and text messages, current Gator players, coaches, family, and friends worked on ways to help Macy's efforts. Senior Gator Varsity member, Emma Johnson, took on the duties of organizing the endeavor locally and helped spread the word as a service project. Nets, shoes, t-shirts, bags, volleyballs, and other miscellaneous equipment was soon shipped to the Dominican with the help of the local Rotary Club.

What started with just one volleyball has blossomed into Los Caimanes (Spanish for The Gators). Macy is coaching a team of girls ages 10-14 three times a week and is forming a committee to work with the local government to plan fundraising, organize petitions, and raise money to repave the concrete court, put in lights, and pay for team transportation to compete.

On March 8th, International Women's Day, the Peace Corps offered a grant to hold a local event, so Macy arranged a modest 'Queen of the Court' celebration. It was believed it would be a small event — a women's centered tournament with some student-led presentations. It quickly grew into a 4x4 tournament with 12 teams and 80 plus attendees! To keep it women-focused, each team had to have 2 female members and a woman had to touch the ball every time it was on their side. Prizes for the tournament were Gator gym bags and games were played on a Gator-donated net with Gator volleyballs.

Warm UpsMacy is currently coaching volleyball alongside two young men from the community. The three of them attended a training program called "Deportes para la Vida" (sports for life) based on dynamic and athletics-related presentations. They teach a 10 week course in volleyball practice to seventh and eighth graders during PE. Along with volleyball, it also focuses on HIV Education and general risk avoidance through the development of a healthy lifestyle through exercise, teamwork, and goal setting — all which are valuable lessons in the developing country. Up to 60 students are expected to graduate.

Through the generosity of Macy and the Gator Volleyball family, Los Caimanes continue to thrive in the tiny Dominican community of Manabao.
