We are getting excited for the 2013-2014 Rockford JO Club Volleyball season. Training clinics are being planned for both coaches and players. We are adding boys volleyball (3rd-12th grades) to the program this year as well as continuing to build our program for 3rd-12th grade girls.
Possible teams for GIRLS are: 10s, 11s, 12s, 13s, 14s, 15s, 16s and 17/18s. Age groups may be combined to form a full team.
Possible teams for BOYS are: Elementary (5th grade and under), Middle School (6-8th grades) and High School (9-12th grades).
Online registration will open on Nov. 10, 2013. Try-outs will be held on Monday, December 1. Team practices will begin on December 8. While attendance at practice is not mandatory, you are a member of the team and you should try your best to be at all team activities. Playing time at tournaments and play-dates may be reduced due to an unexcused absence.
Tournaments for grades 5 and up (GIRLS) and grades 6 and up (BOYS) will run from January through April. We are searching for opportunities for our 10s team (grades 3 and 4) to scrimmage teams from neighboring communities. To see the full schedule for all teams, click on the ”Master Schedule” tab, with team specific tournament schedules found under “Team Schedules”. Until tournament registrations are accepted, some dates will remain tentative. There are currently no BOYS dates on the schedule as we are waiting for that information to become available.
We will host the Rockford Rumble tournament on March 1 and 2, 2014! Please mark your calendars now!!!
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 Rox Play-dates, as well as the Heartland Mid-Winter Classic. The Heartland Play-dates 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 Club Volleyball!
