For Swells Tryouts 12/8/19

Swells is Rise VBC's Non Travel/Local Team program. It is a fantastic option for younger players to get the team volleyball experience and learn from experienced coaches, but not have quite the time and financial commitments of Rise Travel Teams. We teach the players the FUNdamentals of Volleyball and help stoke a love for the game. We are so proud of our Swells Program and are confident in the development it provides for the players going forward in terms of the evolution of their game.

Teams are formed according to age groups and experience levels.  Swells is meant to be a developmental program for like minded players who want to be a little more serious about upping their training and dedication to Volleyball. Our goal is to get players to the next level in their games and be a transition to eventual Travel Teams starting in 7th or 8th grade. Swells provides great training and a fun option for younger players who don't want to take on full Travel Team commitments but still want to be on a dedicated team for a longer period of time. Although we do not make cuts, we have tryouts so that we can better know how to appropriately place players and their respective teams.

Pros of Swells:


  • Committed Teams
  • Dedicated, Experienced Coaches
  • Smaller Coach to player ratio than Rec League
  • Like-minded teammates who are ready to significantly improve their skills
  • Stronger Competition 
  • More training hours a week than Rec League
