Welcome to the Press Box

....moving athletes to commitment rather than mere compliance



The Virginia Athletic Council's Press Box is an area of the organization's website designed and dedicated to the highest standards of print and photo-journalism. Its purpose is to be a voice in the athletic community that provides thought-provoking information and independent opinions that examine and/or identify athletic related problems, issues and solutions. The VAC Press Box is dedicated to providing unwavering support and unconditional belief in the athlete.  Additionally, the content in this area shall: 

  • advance the athlete’s understanding and therefore the athlete’s behavior ensuring they are in step with the current athletic environment as well as post-athletic opportunities .


  • examine the values of education and sportsmanship via the governing bodies sportsmanship codes.


  • illustrate examples of self discipline encouraging adherence to a lifestyle that will contribute in a positive way to team effectiveness and citizenship.
