Local

Why three levels offered?

There are many reasons players & parents choose to play club volleyball.  At RC we offer a multiple of levels of competition and training to accommodate as many of those needs as possible. Players and parents must fully understand the level of play they are selecting and choosing to tryout for. Each have goals and objectives to help all players improve.

Why the Local level?  This level is being offered by RC for multiple reasons.  Someone wants to try club, but is not sure they are ready.  The student-athlete is in numerous activities and certain seasons interfere with a club season that overlaps other seasons. They do not wish to travel for both time and expense purposes.

We offer two Local sessions.  Winter and Spring.  The Winter sessions will begin practices in Dec and finish season at the end of Feb.  12 weeks in length.  The Spring sessions will start the beginning of Mar and end the end of Apr.
