The Regina Volleyball Club, or RVC for short, is a long-standing community-based non-profit sport organization dedicated to the development and growth of elite volleyball in Regina and the surrounding area. RVC began as a single team in 1985. It officially became RVC in 1990 and in the next few years expanded to include six girls teams which played in an organized league in the Regina area. Games were played on Sunday afternoons at the old Regina Curling Club on the exhibition grounds. By 2002, RVC had grown to a record high of 18 teams from PeeWee to Junior for Girls, and Bantam to Juvenile for Boys. In 2003, the club added a developmental program with an overwhelming response. At the time, the club was home to over 400 athletes and was one of the largest volleyball clubs in Saskatchewan.
RVC is truly a grassroots program and its success is the product of its past members hard-work and effort over the years. Those who have participated in RVC have been involved in coaching, managing teams and/or being on the executive. RVC’s continued existence is owed to its community of participants and their deep passion for the sport of volleyball.
In recent years, RVC decided to specialize in the development of elite volleyball programs for male athletes aged 8-18. RVC’s current mandate is to provide these athletes with opportunities to develop skills that will help them compete at the highest levels. RVC has had great success with its male division, growing to now nine teams!
RVC fields teams in the provincial age-class program in every age division (13U, 14U, 15U, 16U, 17U, 18U) and for both men and women. RVC is proud to promote its partnership with the University of Regina Men’s Cougar Volleyball program alongside Head Coach Greg Barthel. This partnership helps us provide better and more elite volleyball experiences for our athletes. Many current and past Men’s Cougar Volleyball players are current coaches of RVC’s club volleyball teams.
All of our athletes have access to quality equipment, facilities for practicing, coaches that are certified, Saskatchewan Volleyball Association membership, and Volleyball Canada registration.
RVCs competitive club teams practice regularly and attend tournaments throughout the season, which runs from January through May. RVC provides core services as part of the club fee. Fundraising opportunities are also available at the team level to help cover costs, promote team building, and develop interpersonal skills.
