Touches on the Ball
Why isn't this already included in my Club Fees?
This program is designed for the player who wants that competitive edge and desires to practice outside of practice to hone and perfect their skill. This additional training gives them more reps and deeper insight into the game than what can be accomplished during team practices and allows for more in-depth training for players that want it and desire to go to the next level.
Will my daughter get more playing time?
RVC's philosophy is "Play to Win" and to put the best players on the court at any given time to give the team the best chance to win, team line-ups are at the coach's discretion. Protecting and maintaining the integrity of our beliefs and values are paramount for us. We believe that players always get out, what they put into their training, and the more reps they get only helps, but play time is always earned without bias including being enrolled into the Grindstone Club.
Can I cancel my membership at anytime?
No. We design and budget our program based on the number of players that choose to commit. This allows us to properly plan on the number of coaches, training material and court time we need.
If I don't book my sessions for the month do I get a credit? or do they rollover?
No, if you do not book your allotted sessions for the month there is no credit and sessions do not accumulate and rollover to be used the next month. It is a use or lose program.
Grindstone membership will be capped Registration Opens in July

This is a copy of the contract so you can familiarize yourself and know how we roll!
3 Out of State Trips
2 Out of State Trips

The only difference between contracts of teams is the number of out of state trips that are attended.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
By accepting, I acknowledge and agree that it is my intent for my daughter to play for RVC during the entire 2020-2021 Season. I understand that by accepting the offer I am legally obligated to pay the $550 non-refundable deposit to secure a spot on the team for my daughter at the time of acceptance through the team registration process.
I understand that my daughter may be able to move up in the program if the opportunity becomes available. I also acknowledge that my accepting and agreeing to this contract is not predicated on any conditions outside this document. I understand the non-refundable deposit of $550 will be applied to the club dues for the season. By accepting I also agree to pay according to the payment schedule set forth by the Club.
Please note, your offer/position is Time Sensitive. Delay in accepting your offer may result in your spot being filled and your offer becoming null and void.
Your offer is not secure until your offer is accepted and deposit has been paid.
Payment of Fees
It is my daughter’s desire and intent to play with RVC for the entire 2020-2021 Season. I understand that my daughter’s acceptance of the position offered obligates me to pay the required club registration fees. I expressly acknowledge and agree to this full amount as a contractual obligation regardless of whether my daughter voluntarily leaves, is injured for the remainder of the season, or is suspended or expelled from RVC prior to the end of the 2020-2021 Season.
Late/Non-Payment of Fees
If payment is not received by the 20th of the month, the player will be ineligible to participate in practices and games until payment due is tendered in full. NOTE: Any payments made later then the 20th of the month will be subject to a $50 late fee.
RVC has a no-pay, no-play policy. This means failure to fulfill your financial obligations (including travel expenses) to RVC, according to the contract and payment option selected, can result in a player’s playing privileges being suspended, and can include being suspended from attending practices, Powers, and tournament play.
In addition, if a player’s account is not paid in full by the conclusion of the season, it will result in the player being placed on the “Hold List” with RMR. This will result in the player’s playing privileges being suspended until the obligations are fulfilled. This will also impact the player’s ability to register with RVC or any other club in the RMR next year.
If there are multiple players from one family, the entire family balance must be paid or the amount is then transferred to any remaining players within the family on the hold list. Any leftover balance past September 1st of 2021 may be turned into collections and/or small claims court. In the event the account is assigned for collection, the account holder (parent) is responsible for all costs of collection including, but not limited to, the collection fees, attorney fees and court costs.
Travel Tournament & Expenses
I understand that I am required to share in team expenses during the course of the season, including travel expenses associated with attending out-of-state tournaments, and that this is in addition to and not included in the club registration fees. Payments must be made by the due date set by RVC. Each player is responsible for all travel fees associated tournaments.
Team Expenses include, but are not limited to:
For this particular team, they will attend see below "Out of State Tournaments"
3 Out of State Tournaments
2 Out of State Tournaments
1 Out of State Tournaments
If a team qualifies for the GJNC then they are required to attend that tournament, according to USAV rules. 2021 GJNC will be held TBD
By accepting this contract, you are acknowledging that this player is committed to attending all of the travel trips with this team and if they do not attend, then you are still responsible to pay travel fees in full and in accordance by the due dates set by the club.
***NOTE: RVC reserves the right to cancel travel tournaments prior to incurring any travel related expenses, at the absolute and sole discretion of the club.***
As such, I understand that my daughter is not guaranteed to play in a travel tournament, and the decision of RVC to not provide a travel tournament for my daughter’s participation does not relieve me of my legal and contractual duty to pay.
Each player has the option to fundraise to defray any expenses. All funds collected to cover these expenses will be deposited in your Individual Players RVC Account – not a team account. These funds remain with RVC should the player leave the club and are not available for cash withdrawal at any point. All fundraising money collected can be used towards anything within the RVC walls: extra uniform or practice gear, fan gear apparel, dues, travel, lessons, or camps. No one is required to fundraise during the season, it is up to each individual to do as much or as little fundraising as they would like.
I understand that my daughter may be moved up or down teams during the course of the season (within USAV age definition rules) including but not limited to; player performance, player attitude, and team need. This decision is at the discretion of RVC. I understand that this is in the sole and absolute discretion of RVC, and that in doing so, it does not relieve me of my legal and contractual obligation to pay any dues owed to RVC.
RVC competes at a Competitive level, and there is NO guarantee of playing time during the season. Players are expected to earn their playing time through hard-work at practice, or extra time outside of practice through lessons by a RVC coach. I understand that I do not pay for my daughter’s playing time, but rather for the training that the player receives through practices/training.
We agree to the following about how to handle any issues we may have about playing time during the season:
*THIS IS TO HAPPEN AT PRACTICE - NOT A POWER OR TOURNAMENT*
RVC has a 24-hour rule when talking with coaches or any RVC staff at ANY Power or Tournament. This is in place to protect coaches, players and parents from unnecessary problems. Parents are required to refrain from talking with any coach or RVC Staff about playing time issues, coaching issues, etc. during this 24-hour period. When in a competitive setting and if emotions are high, things can escalate quickly and easily, and then the conversation is not going to be productive. This does not mean you cannot talk to the coach, just that you must wait to discuss things about play until at least 24 hours after the tournament is over.
Communication is considered to be in person, by phone, text messages and emails. This is a widely-used practice among volleyball programs and is suggested to us by USA Volleyball. Failure to follow this rule may result in your daughter’s inability to play on the court at the next scheduled event. This rule is to not be taken lightly, and is considered to be a serious topic for RVC.
We agree to follow RVC’s rule on how to handle issues we may have during the season. If we are having any issues we feel should be brought to the attention of the coach or RVC Administration, we will use the following as a stepping stool to do so:
Consent to Photography and Imaging
We give RVC express and written consent to release and/or reproduce images that may be taken of my child during the course of the season. These images may appear in future promotional materials or on the RVC website. These images may also be made available to consenting players and their families, as well as to participating teams, for purchase. We further release RVC from any and all liability and waive all rights and claims connected to publication, display, copyright, and distribution of any photographic images.
We understand that it is our responsibility to review any and all information distributed through the RVC Website, RVC App and RVC Newsletters. We will check email regularly for updates and information from RVC and its staff. Failure to comply with any policies, rules or procedures promulgated and made available through these means of communication does not constitute a proper excuse for failing to comply.
Player's Code of Ethics
By participating on an RVC team, I agree I will engage in the following behavior:
• I will encourage good sportsmanship from fellow players, coaches, officials and parents at all times. I will always remember that volleyball is an opportunity to learn and have fun.
• I deserve to play in an environment that is free of drugs, tobacco and alcohol: and expect everyone to refrain from their use at all volleyball training and matches.
• I will do the best I can each day, remembering that all players have talents and weaknesses the same as I do.
• I will treat my coaches, other players and coaches, game officials, other administrators, and fans with respect at all times; regardless of race, sex, creed or abilities and I will expect to be treated accordingly.
• I will not curse at any time wearing RVC apparel, especially on the court.
• I will concentrate on playing volleyball, always giving my best effort.
• I will play by the rules at all times and will control my temper, resisting the temptation to retaliate.
• My conduct during competition towards play of the game and all officials shall be in accordance with appropriate behavior, and in adherence to RMR/USAV rules.
• I will not disparage others, including my teammates, coach and club, on any social media platform.
• While traveling, I will conduct myself so as to be a credit to myself, my team, and RVC.
• Alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco products and unauthorized prescription drugs shall not be possessed, consumed or distributed before, during or after any game or at any time.
I understand and agree that if I/my daughter violates any of the above Player’s Code of Ethics, I/she may be subject to suspension or expulsion, at the sole discretion of RVC, and that I will not be entitled to a refund.
Parent's Code of Ethics
By participating as a spectator at RVC, RMR, AAU, JVA and USAV Sanctioned events, I agree I will engage in the following behavior:
• I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, game officials, and administrators at all times.
• I will support the coaches, officials, and administrators working with my child, in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable experience for all.
• I will remember that the game is for the players, not for the adults.
• I will ask my child to treat other players, coaches, game officials, administrators, and fans with respect.
• I will always be positive.
• I will always allow the coach to be the only coach, by refraining from coaching from the sidelines, as it only confuses the players on the court.
• I will not enter into arguments with the other team’s parents, players, or coaches.
• I will not enter the court for any reason during the game.
• I will not criticize game officials, before, during or after the game.
• Alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco products and unauthorized prescription drugs shall not be possessed, consumed or distributed before, during, after the game or at any other time at the court.
I understand my failure to comply may result in the suspension of my/my daughter’s privilege to participate in RMR/USAV sanctioned events.
I understand and agree that if RVC is charged at any time by the RMR for my actions, or the actions of anyone in my family, or by anyone who attends an RMR event on behalf of my daughter, then I am responsible for paying back RVC for the full amount of the fee within 20 days of the offense.
Should I or my daughter wish to be released, I understand that I will be required to fulfill all financial obligations noted above, including the travel expenses expected for the out-of-state tournaments so the extra cost does not get passed on to the rest of the team. If this is not completed, my daughter will be placed on the RMR hold list and prevented from playing from any other club in the future until it is paid in full and/or the account will be turned over to a collection agency or smalls claims court if it is not paid by September 1st, 2021.
This is subject to exception for a season ending injury. The injury must be assessed by a medical professional and presented with a signed note. The “season ending injury” must have occurred during a RVC practice, RMR Power/Tournament, Crossroads, or any other travel tournament. Importantly, I will still be required to pay any remaining dues, and will only be exempt from the travel expenses agreed to above.
Responsibilities and Obligation
I understand that RVC will take reasonable steps to provide a safe, fun and instructional environment for the Members of the club to participate in and play the game of volleyball.
Notwithstanding, we understand that there are some inherent risks associated with playing competitive sports and agree to hold harmless RVC Inc., its Directors, Coaches and Training Staff in the event of an injury.
It is expressly agreed that the use of the RVC Facility, or satellite locations and/or participation in RVC sponsored activities or events shall be undertaken by a member at their sole risk, and RVC shall not be held liable for any injuries or any damage to any member or property arising from participation in the activity or event or transportation to or from the activity or event, whether or not caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the RVC.
RVC shall not be responsible or liable to members for articles damaged, lost or stolen in or about the Club area or for loss or damages to any property including but not limited to automobiles and the contents thereof.
