To create an environment conducive to learning in which we not only develop all players' basic volleyball skills, but also a higher level of play and knowledge of the sport; paying special attention to fundamentals daily. Our teams will have coaches who are role models and our players will know that they are cared for and belong. Players will grow to understand that what is best for the team is what is best for them.
Rockford Volleyball Club aspires to be an outstanding educational-athletic organization that provides a high-quality experience to every athlete.
The Rockford Volleyball Association was founded in the fall of 1985 for the purpose of promoting the growth of volleyball in the Rockford area. Rockford Volleyball has grown year by year to become the competitive and respected club it is now. In 1998 Rockford Volleyball secured its first "home to call it's own" at the The Open Net Sports Center in Loves Park, Illinois. Rockford Volleyball, working in partnership with the Rockford Park District, then moved into a new home at the Indoor Sports Center at 8800 East Riverside Boulevard in Loves Park in January 2002.
This year, we have moved to the UW Health Sports Factory in downtown Rockford. This facility has 16 courts, multiple conference spaces, a full restaurant and concessions.
The club is a director-run organization and benefits from the support group of the Rockford Volleyball Association Board that helps the director in club matters.
The Rockford Volleyball website is your lifeline to information about tournaments, dues, and updated club happenings.
