City League

City League is a recreational league designed to develop players in a non-travel format. For girls ages 12-18 and boys 12-14, this league plays and practices locally at one of the RVC facilities competing against other City League teams. While focusing on developing skills and player growth, the league also introduces elements that are seen in more competitive levels of play (such as is our Junior Travel Program) so that if a player decides to move up they will feel prepared. Such elements include: try-outs, player rotation, scorekeeping, refereeing, and pool player tournaments.

Then, you may pay your balance using a credit card.  If you have more than one junior player, each account is handled separately. You will need to indicate which account you want to access when you log in. You will be prompted by the system to choose one. The City League team fee of $325 will be due by February 1, 2018.  Should you not wish to pay online, we will accept checks and cash in the office or sent to us in the mail.
