Middle School League for 5th – 6th Graders is designed to get younger volleyball players more experience and touches on the volleyball. Created with the younger player in mind, this volleyball league has lower nets, smaller courts, and lighter than normal volleyballs – all to help players with proper skill development and confidence on the court. Matches will be played 4 on 4 with only 9 players on a roster again helping promote more touches on the volleyball per player – winning is not the ultimate goal. Each team is run by a parent volunteer with an RVC master coach leading practices and drills.
