Middle School League 7th-9th Graders
The Middle School League for 7th – 9th Graders is designed to provide an opportunity for boys and girls who do not have a school volleyball team to practice and compete in the fall. This league is more competitive than a rec league and is designed for players with prior volleyball experience. Players with limited to no volleyball experience should participate in Jumpin’ Juniors instead. Matches will be played 6 on 6 with 12 players on a roster where all players will receive relatively equal playing time. There will be modified serve rules in order to promote rallies and player and coaches will referee matches as well as compete during pool play. Each team has an RVC coach and practices will focus on development and team concepts.
