The sport of volleyball ended 2014 on a high note when Joseph Clercent joined Greek 1st Division professional club, Ment, on a five month contract. Joseph Clercent is the other half of St. Lucia’s top beach volleyball pair, two time Volleyball Player of the Year (2012 and 2013) and two time MVP of the Eastern Caribbean Volleyball Senior Men’s Championship (2012 and 2014).
Joe, as he is called, was offered the contract on the urging of his beach volleyball partner Julian Biscette who was already enjoying a standout first season with Club Ment. With help from three key partners: the St. Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association, the St. Lucia Olympic Committee, and the Minister of Youth and Sports Shaun Edward, Joe was able to grasp the offer.
Needing to find his way to Caracas, Venezuela, to apply for a visa and work permit, and then fly on to Thessaloniki through Athens, Greece, he sought help to finance this venture. All three financiers came forward quickly and enthusiastically, especially as all this had to be done in less than one week.
Using the St. Lucia Hotel and Tourism Development Fund, Noorani Azeez, the Executive Vice President indicated that the carrying of the St. Lucia flag far afield by the youth of St. Lucia was something the SLHTA enthusiastically supported. “We want to see the young people of St. Lucia show the world the greatness and beauty of our island” said Azeez.
Joe sealed his case for support by placing sixth in the recently concluded Beach Volleyball Men’s Division of the 2014 CASCO Games in Vera Cruz, Mexico on 29th November, 2014. He flew out the following day to get home on 1st December in time to join the Senior Male Team preparing to defend its ECVA Championship in Antigua from December 4th to 8th. Joe was handed the Captain’s stripe for the first time in his career and did he lead! St. Lucia won the tournament and Joe was named MVP, Best Outsider Hitter, Best Receiver and Best Scorer at the end of the tournament.
Joe and Julian now have the unbelievable opportunity to make a name for their country as they try to bring to Club Ment the same success they have brought to St. Lucia. The club has also pledged to provide beach volleyball training facilities to them so that they can continue representing St. Lucia at the end of the season.
The support of SLOC, SLHTA and the Minister of Sports cannot be over emphasized as far as its timeliness and importance goes. Executive Vice President of the SLHTA, Mr. Noorani Azeez, said supporting the youth of St. Lucia is a key pillar of the SLHTA Development Fund “and giving a young athlete the opportunity to fly the country’s flag in Europe goes hand in hand with promoting St. Lucia and St. Lucians across the world”.
The sport of volleyball has been criticized for “winning only at the OECS level” and this support for players to play professionally will only enhance the quality and level of the national team making it more competitive at the international level.
The Honourable Minister of Sports, Shaun Edward says, “I will find a way to help and I am pleased to have this opportunity to support Joe as Joe has worked in an exemplary fashion with the Ministry as a Coach and this will only help our nation and the sport of volleyball to grow”.
SLOC has been instrumental in Joe’s development over the years, supporting training stints locally and internationally for him and supporting his participation in both volleyball and beach volleyball at the regional and international level over the last few years.
The Association remains quietly optimistic that this is just the beginning of things to come as more volleyballers get into the sport at a higher level from an early age. The success of the members of the Under 20 Team at the recent ECVA Championships bodes well for the Association’s youth development efforts and exposes the possibilities the sport holds for the youth in pursuit of higher education and now as a professional athlete.
