Private Instruction


In order to help players learn and improve skills, Richmond Volleyball Club is dedicated to offering quality instruction for players 12 and up.  Individual and group instruction focus on a variety of skills, including passing, setting, hitting, blocking and serving. With a wealth of coaching experience at all levels, our coaching staff is able to provide instruction in an individual or group setting on all aspects of volleyball.


Instructors who have chosen to give lessons have added their availability to Esoft which will appear as blue blocks on Esoft. If there is not availability posted in Esoft, then there is not an instructor available. Questions about private instruction may be sent to

**If you are new to private instruction, then you will need to create your player an account in Esoft in order to book lessons for them. Click here to register a new player in Esoft.  This account is different then your RVC membership account.**

NOTE: Lessons must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. Esoft will not allow for same day reservations. 

Please do not book lessons with coaches for the two months leading up to tryouts if the coach may potentially be your child’s coach. In other words, if your child will be playing in the 16’s age group, do not book a lesson with any of the 16’s coaches during that time period.  Thank you.
