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.
