CRVBC BBQ: Don't miss out on the fun!

Calling all CRVBC Members! This includes players, parents, siblings and anyone else you're close to. As unbelievable as it may seem, another season of JO volleyball is rapidly coming to a close.  But it's not over until we finish off the year with a celebration...the end of the season CRVBC BBQ! It's on Sunday, May 21, 2017 from 12:00pm - 5:00pm at Rollins Park, Concord NH. Rain or kidding.  Don't even bother looking at the weather report! What to Bring: Anyone with a last name beginning with A-M bring a side dish. Anyone with a last name beginning with N-Z bring a dessert or fruit. CRVBC will be providing the Hamburgers and Hot Dogs etc. Everyone should bring the following: Drinks, Chairs, sunscreen, clothes for playing volleyball as we will have at least a couple of nets up…probably more.

Teams selection is complete

The team selection process is complete.
We will be having eight teams this year (two 18's, three 16's, one 15's, two 14's).
We have done our best to put together what the coaches feel will be the most successful teams across the age groups; while trying very hard to allow as many players as possible to participate in the program.

Please make sure to check the 'Member Type' column to see if you are a 'Player' or a 'Shuttle Squad' member of the team ('Player' indicates Tournament Team).

The team members are listed on our 'Team Members' and our 'Team Assignments' page.

If you have questions about your placement, please get in touch with the coach associated with the team at your JO age category. We ask you to do this because these will be the coaches that were in the gym while you were trying out. Other coaches may not have seen you play. The coach contact information is available on the 'Staff' page.

Please let us know if you were trying out for a position on a Tournament Team, but did not get on a Tournament Team, and you do not wish to participate where you were placed. We will refund your Tournament Team fee. If you do wish to participate where you were placed, then we will refund the difference between the Tournament Team fee and the fee associated with the program in which you will be participating. We have done our best to keep as many players as possible at their commensurate ability levels. This effort is to help players to not get left behind; if you don't get practice time this season, how will you be ready for your next season (High School and/or Club). Note: you can contact us by using the email address located at the bottom of this web page.

Practices start this coming Sunday November 20th. Please visit the Teams page to find your practice time and location.

What is the Training Academy?

The CRVBC 'Training Academy' is a great opportunity to learn and improve your volleyball skills using the same techniques as our national teams.  The format consists of going through skill building drills followed by playing time.  You will be coached by members of the coaching staff on a rotating basis.  Practice runs from 3:30 to 5:30 each Sunday except for Easter and Tournament days.  In addition you will learn how to referee and scorekeep.
