New athletes who wish to try out...

Typically, the Richmond Rize have fielded 4 girls teams consisting of 14U, 15U, 16U and 18U however we encourage everyone who is interested in playing volleyball to register and we will form the teams that best serve all our athletes. Here are the official age categories for the upcoming season:

18U: Athletes born from September 1, 1998 to Dec 31 1999 (16 months)
17U: Athletes born from September 1, 1999 to Dec 31 2000 (16 months)
16U: Athletes born from September 1, 2000 to Dec 31 2001 (16 months)
15U: Athletes born from September 1, 2001 to Dec 31 2002 (16 months)
14U: Athletes born from September 1, 2002 to Dec 31 2003 (16 months) 

(There age groups overlap so that any child born in the last 4 months of any year (Sept 1st-Dec 31st) can be placed on a younger team if the younger team is more suitable for their stage of development.)

All tryout and team roster decisions will be made by the coaching staff of the teams with the best interest of all the athletes in mind.

Jayde Marchand Selected to Team Nova Scotia

July 9th, 2016

On July 1st - 7th, three Rize athletes, Emma Jeffrey (14U), Madison DeCoste (16U) and Jayde Marchand (16U) took part in a grueling 6-day Elite Development Camp in Sydney. This camp was also the final selection camp for our Provincial teams who train in Halifax from July 24th-28th and then travel to St John's, NL to proudly represent Nova Scotia in the Eastern Elite Championships on July 29th & 30th. As one of the six 16U coaches who was honoured to be asked to participate in this high-level development camp and selection process, I can attest to how hard each and every athlete worked and how much they grew as competitive athletes and teammates while they learned the latest in offensive and defensive systems.

I am very proud to announce that Jayde Marchand has been chosen to represent Nova Scotia and the Richmond Rize on our Provincial team. Congratulations Jayde!! You were asked to make significant personal sacrifices by moving to the Libero position early in the camp and all who watched you in action were very impressed with how you fully embraced your new role to help the team succeed. We are sure you will be a force on the Provincial team.

~ Michael Hawke - President, Richmond Rize Volleyball Club
