New thsi season (2)a

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 new level is being offered by RC this season as a replacement of TVA's Advanced Competitive League (ACL).  It is offered for multiple reasons.  Someone wants to try club, but is not sure they are ready.  They are in numerous activities and certain seasons interfere with a club season that overlaps other seasons.

Any player not making the Regional level is highly recommended to tryout for the Local level.

Players will be made offers immediately following the tryout.  Players must accept or decline at this time.  Any player declining will have their spot offered to the next player in line. Players accepting their offer will be handed a contract and other information.  A $250 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of acceptance.

How many will be selected?  If 25 girls tryout, we will keep at least two Regional teams. The coaching staff will rank players in order of ability from #1, #2, #3.....to the maximum number that tryout.  The top ten will make the 1st team and players ranked 11-20 will make the 2nd team.  If anyone on the 1st team declines their position, #11 will be asked to move up. If anyone on the 2nd team would decline their position #21 would be asked if they want that spot on the team.
