The NCAVA works to eliminate off the field violence by athletes through the implementation of prevention methods that recognize and promote the positive leadership potential of athletes within their communities. In order to eliminate violence, the NCAVA is dedicated to empowering individuals affected by athlete violence through comprehensive services including advocacy, education and counseling.
The purpose of The National Coalition Against Violent Athletes is to educate the public on a variety of issues
regarding athletes and violent behavior while also providing support to the victims, including but not
limited to, advocacy, referrals and research. We also strive to promote positive athlete development through education, support and accountability. In doing so, we work to curb the escalation of athlete violence and create an environment in which people are equally respected and equally held accountable.
We therefore assail the entitlement given to athletes through a system in which athletes have little fear of reprisal. In doing so, we can help restore the sports world to a former level of respectability while helping its victims restore their sense of value and self worth.
The National Coalition Against Violent Athletes was formed in 1997 in response to the growing number of violent crimes committed by athletes in all areas of the sports world. This organization is based solely on the fact that athletes should be held to the same standards and laws as the rest of society.
