Harry Mills Team Maker Award - Youth Sports Trust 2014

Winner Rob Bellany

Richard and Judi were unfortunately unable to present Harry's Team  Maker award personally. We would like to congratulate Rob on this achievement and wish him all the very best for the future in the sport of volleyball - we will look out for him.

Ali Oliver Chief Executive, Youth Sport Trust kindly sent us these words….

This year we evolved and expanded the camp to include nearly 350 young people who were a mix of young talented athletes, coaches and officials. We were keen to enable young people to explore the relationships between these 3 roles in sport from a young age and wrestle with some of the moral and ethical decisions they each face in performing their role in sport. As you can imagine it was a fascinating 4 days in Loughborough with the usual Youth Sport Trust mischief thrown in!

The award was again presented to a young person who, through their actions, creates an environment that allows each person within their team to flourish and grow: this person is a team maker.

The 2014 Winner was Rob Bellamy a special young man from the sport of Volleyball. Below is the citation for Rob’s nomination:

Rob really grew and developed over the four days, and proved himself as a young person who had his team at the heart of everything he did. Rob went out of his way to bring the Volleyball coaches, officials and athletes together, and demonstrated a real empathy for the different individuals, and the role s they played in the team, across the camp and his sport. Rob was nominated by his peers for the award because of his commitment and dedication for his sport, and the role he played in bringing people together.

The photograph shows Rob receiving his award from the Vice Chancellor of Loughborough University Robert Allison, and the Secretary of State for Education and MP for Loughborough, Nicky Morgan.

Many thanks to the Youth Sports Trust for remembering Harry with this wonderful award.
