The Regina Volleyball Club is a long-standing community-based non-profit sport organization dedicated to youth development in volleyball in Regina and surrounding area. Our mandate is to provide opportunities to those youth to participate in a volleyball program that will develop their skills and enable them to compete at their appropriate level. This grassroots program is the success of Regina Volleyball Club’s past members efforts over the years. The dedication of the many families who have been involved extensively with coaching, managing teams and executive commitments (and sometimes all three) is the reason for RVC’s existence.
RVC offers tiered age class, developmental and elite programs for ages 8-21 years of age for boys and girls. All members have access to the quality equipment, facilities for practicing, certified coaching, Saskatchewan Volleyball Association membership, Volleyball Canada registration, athlete-owned jersey, awards, try-outs, newsletter, etc. The club supports coaching development and accreditation.
The age-class 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 but allows flexibility to its teams and families with regard to other expenses. Fundraising opportunities are available to members to help offset registration, camps and team fees.
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 enjoys a partnership with the U of Regina men’s program and head coach Greg Barthel to advance our men’s volleyball program in the district. RVC also offers developmental and recreational programs for elementary and high school athletes, as well as a summer beach volleyball program and summer skills camp.
Regina Volleyball Club is actively involved and recognized by the Saskatchewan Volleyball Association as a viable association that is very pro-active to promoting amateur sport of volleyball in the province. The club has hosted and coordinated provincial tournaments on a regular basis.
Regina Volleyball Club started as a single team in 1985. It officially became the Regina Volleyball Club in 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 exibition grounds. RVC grew to record high numbers of 18 teams from PeeWee to Junior for Girls and Bantam to Juvenile for Boys when the Boys division was initiated in 2002. In 2003 the club added a developmental program with an overwhelming response. The club now serves over 400 athletes and is one of the largest clubs in Saskatchewan.
