A complete season will be a financial commitment of $690. Players are encouraged to acquire sponsors to assist with their monthly membership fees. A letter asking for sponsorship is available through the Club Rim Director.

The age groups are:

12 and Under Division: Players who are born on or after Sept. 1, 1995

14 and Under Division: Players who are born on or after Sept. 1, 1993

As a member of Club Rim, players will elevate the level of play above what is currently available in their school program.

Many girls aspire to play volleyball at the collegiate level. In order to make this dream a reality, they must belong to a volleyball club to be seen by college recruiters, Club Rim officials said.

Involvement in Club Rim allows girls the opportunity to receive college volleyball scholarships.
