Tryout Information

Welcome to the 2020-21 Rockford Volleyball Club Season

The 2020-21 Season has been adjusted to work with the new school volleyball season.

We are living in a unique time and, as a result, we need to be willing to adjust to the current environment. With the IHSA moving high school volleyball to February and the restrictions made by the state of Illinois on youth sports, changes have had to be made to our usual club season.  

  • Middle School aged boys and girls will have a full club season from September - February. 
  • High School girls will have a full club season but it will be divided into two sessions allowing athletes the flexibility to join their local high school's practices during September and October.
