Comment on Bullying and the YMCAby Kristi Potts on 09/25/18
The staff of the Montgomery County Family YMCA was made aware of the recent video posting regarding bullying among participants in the YMCA’s youth volleyball program.
The YMCA staff does not support bullying in any form. We are concerned about the impact that the video and the subsequent social media conversation has had on all parties involved. One of the youth voluntarily withdrew from the volleyball program due to her actions. The YMCA will continue to monitor the situation and take appropriate steps if further action is needed.
I would personally like to apologize for how my comments regarding bullying were interpreted. My choice of words did not clearly reflect my personal stance, and that of the YMCA’s, that any type of bullying is acceptable.
I ask that you contact me personally at the YMCA if you have any comments regarding this incident.
