Interest in volleyball is growing in this area. School seasons are very short. Club volleyball gives players the opportunity to continue to play after the school season ends. Junior Olympic volleyball is also referred to as club or travel volleyball. This program presents players with an opportunity to receive extensive instruction and training by highly qualified coaches, and a chance to enhance their skill level, perfect technique, and increase their knowledge of the game, all while playing at a highly competitive level.
Rome Area Volleyball Club would like to be the club you and your daughter choose to advance her volleyball career. It's directors, Noel and Lisa Carper, bring over 30 combined years of playing/coaching experience to the court. Noel has been the head assistant coach at Shorter University for the past 7 seasons. He also has extensive playing experience in both indoor and sand tournament play. Lisa, also having played competitively for several years, has coached for Rocket City Volleyball Club in Huntsville, AL for 9 years. She worked with girls' teams ranging in age from 10-18. They have also developed a new volleyball program at Berry College Elementary and Middle school just this year.
Junior Olympic Volleyball presents many opportunities to players. It offers extensive instruction and training with highly qualified coaches, who are experienced in playing and coaching volleyball. As with many sports, club volleyball teaches and enhances skills that players will use in all aspects of their lives, not just on the court.
Through high quality coaching, we strive to provide players with the tools necessary to advance skills and perfect technique in the sport of volleyball. We believe coaching is the catalyst for the growth and development not only of the athlete, but also of the individual, apart from athletics. Therefore, it should take place in an instructional environment of encouragement, positive motivation, and fun. (physically and emotionally safe)
RAV will provide a physically and emotionally safe environment for players to learn/advance their skills in volleyball. We will apply these skills on the court at an appropriate level of competition at SRVA volleyball tournaments. We are here to develop volleyball players and help the growth of this popular sport in this area. We will also help in every way we can, with a players’ continued pursuit of the game.
We strive to put the girls on the court to see as much playing time as possible, however playing time is not guaranteed.
Every player is given the same amount of instruction, coaching, and opportunity to see a lot of playing time. It is up to the individual coach to decide who plays and how much playing time each player receives. Each set/match is individual, and the coach can change the line up as she feels necessary.
