Rockford JO Club Volleyball is registered with the North Country Region (NCR) Volleyball League.  For more information on this league, go to www.ncrusav.org.  All events we attend must be a part of the NCR league to be covered by our insurance!

We participate in the Heartland Playdates, as well as the Heartland Mid-Winter Classic.  The Heartland Playdates are held on Sundays in either Monticello or Big Lake.  The tournaments are located in Onamia, Oglivie or Mora and may be held on a Saturday or Sunday based on age group.  Heartland does not charge admission to attend any of their events.

When extra tournaments are scheduled, we look for tournaments that are within a 2 hour drive and are sanctioned by North Country Region Volleyball.  We also take into consideration the availability of hotels, the age of the players and coaches work schedules.

We are excited to have you participating in Rockford JO Volleyball!
