Junior Financial Aid Program

Roger Robison Fund

Roger Robison (1938-2004) was a key individual in the forming of RVC back in the early 80’s and served on the first board of directors, along with serving for a second time from 2000-2004. He was passionate about the sport, was a great individual with exceptional character and a genuine personality, and helped make RVC the club it is today.

In 2005, The Roger Robison Fund was established based on his belief that all Richmond-area youth should be able to play volleyball without having to worry about the cost. The fund is a way for RVC and its members to provide financial assistance to young athletes who would not be able to participate without financial assistance.  In 2018 alone, RVC granted more than $40,000 worth of financial assistance to junior players in our travel program, City League, Middle School League, Jumpin’ Juniors, and summer camps.

Questions? Please contact the RVC office at (804) 358-3000 or email rvc@rvc.net.

 

  • In order to help offset the cost of playing competitive travel volleyball, we offer yearly athlete grants for players on National, Zonal, State, Regional  and VYVL teams. Grants may cover partial or full season costs depending on the team level a player makes and their financial need.
