“This highlights one of the goals of Sky Volleyball club: Stated simply one of the goals of the Sky Nation is happiness,” said Emily’s father, Sherman Dahl. “It is worthwhile to discuss happiness in the context of competitive sport and business in general.

“Happiness and mindfulness have become popular topics among leaders of most competitive parts of our lives including sport and business. Several key executives have spoken publicly in recent months about how it helps them improve the bottom line of business or the “win” in competitive sport.”

The Emily Dahl Foundation is a proud supporter of Sky Volleyball and will continue to work alongside the club by bringing the message of true mindfulness and happiness as a key objective for all young athletes, parents and coaches.
