    New Health and Safety Guidelines 

    • Weekly, we review guidelines provided by the CDC, National Council on Youth Sports, Virginia Forward Phase guidelines, and the Aspen Institute and will update our procedures based on most current guidelines.
    • As needed (during anticipated congestion), we will have separate entrance and exit for anyone entering and leaving the building
    • We will screen coaches and other staff daily for symptoms of or exposure to COVID. When possible, we will individually screen players entering the building however that is not always practicable. Signs are posted stating no entry for those experiencing symptoms and everyone must sign a waiver agreeing to follow those guidelines.
    • We are propping open doors during times that people are entering and exiting to eliminate touches on doorways. The doors to our bathrooms are propped open as well.
    • We will not be using courts 1, 11, or 12 as this is where the air returns for our HVAC system are located
    • We will only use every other court and no more than 5 courts will be used at any one time (until restrictions are lifted).
    • Signage will be posted asking players to place their items in a location that is adequately distanced from other player’s items
    • Volleyballs have been disinfected according to guidelines and will be disinfected again after each set. A limited number of disinfected volleyballs will be provided for warm up and will be disinfected at the end of play for the evening
    • Except for the contactless bottle filler, water fountains are closed and players are instructed to bring an adequate personal supply of water
    • Players are asked to bring sanitizer (we will have some if a player is unable to bring their own) and to sanitize their arms and hands before play begins
    • Referees will ensure that guidelines are being followed as much as possible and will remind players as necessary to maintain social distance, to avoid touching their face, and to re-sanitize their hands and arms as needed
    • We have closed every other stall and sink in the bathroom and will ensure only a limited number of players are in the bathroom at one time

Team Fees

Levels of Play

With some many different levels of experience, skills, and abilities, it can be difficult to figure out what league would be the best. Below is a general description of what a player looks like at each level.

  • A C level player is a beginner.  This “recreational” player should know the basics of volleyball and have some volleyball experience. Player is just beginning to bump, set, and spike.

  • A “B” player is still in the early learning stages of the game but knows the skills. They know how to bump, is developing setting skills, and can spike. “B” players often makes mistakes and has a lot of practice yet to go to apply these skills consistently. They have usually played in an organized recreational league and has played more than gym class or backyard volleyball. 

  • A “BB” player always knows where to be on the court and when plays are developing, and where to be when the opponent is hitting. “BB” player s know the footwork and how to effectively approach hitting and are usually familiar with playing in a 6-2 or 5-1 system and have played the sport in high school or at a high school level. 

  • An “A” player knows the skills but cannot yet execute high-level plays consistently. They can run combination plays in a basic way if passes are good. “A” players are experienced playing organized volleyball and usually has played some college volleyball or college club volleyball.

  • An “AA” player performs all skills routinely with little effort. They can run complex systems very effectively and are experts of the game and usually have played at a college or university or has high level tournament experience.

  • An “Open” player performs at the highest level and is considered an expert of the sport. “They are a top player at a college/university, have played professionally, and/or are a top tournament player. 

Joining A Team

If you don’t already have a team to join, it’s best to sign up as a Free Agent so that team captains can connect with you. You can also check the list of teams looking for players and connect with a team captain that way. You do not need to have a membership to list yourself as a free agent and can wait until after a team has added you to their roster to join. 

If you are unable to find a team for the upcoming season, another option is to join our Starter League where you can learn more about RVC culture and our Adult League and meet new people to hopefully form a team for next season.  Or Drop-In League is a pay as you play league on Sunday nights for individuals as well.

Social Atmosphere

Not only do we want to foster an atmosphere for friendly competition and athleticism, but also a place where people can be social and connect with each other in a fun, welcoming environment. 

The cafe offers over 10 different beers on tap, along with great food options such as pizza, burgers, fries, sandwiches, and wings. Drink specials happen almost nightly, and players love to stick around before and after their matches to hang out, enjoy our patio space where dogs are welcome in the summer and where firepits are set up when it gets cold out, or our game room  which offers darts, foosball, giant jenga, and more.
