The word anthem is quite familiar to everyone as it relates to a solemn patriotic song officially adopted by a country as an expression of national identity or loyalty. With football or soccer being the song and the core language that VAP uses to advocate for social change, the mission statement (in red) and the vision (in black) has become its anthem which every VAP coach and volunteer has pledged allegiance to as they serve the community, and with a symbol of a football pitch being used as its flag.
