Mission Richmond Volleyball Club is a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing athletes of all ages for amateur volleyball competition. The purpose of RVC is to promote interest in the sport of volleyball, provide training in the skills and techniques of volleyball, and foster teamwork, sportsmanship and an appreciation for health and wellness.
RVC prides itself on the development of younger athletes and their accomplishments both on and off the volleyball court. Each year the club fields teams on the National, Regional, and Local level and plays at a very competitive pace. In addition, RVC hosts various youth tournaments, from major events held at the Richmond Convention Center to weekend local and regional tournaments held at the club itself. The end result is millions of dollars in revenue to the City of Richmond and substantial business created for the local community.
Each year, the organization attempts to expand upon its previous success and reaches out to the community for more assistance and resources.
Current year goals include the aggressive solicitation of sponsorships, implementing suggestions by an outside advisory panel, and improving external communications.
Financial contributions to assist financially needy youth to participate on travel teams.
Repairing and eventual replacement of club's roof.
Additional sporting equipment.
Training and conditioning equipment.

Improved equipment for office infrastructure and efficiency.


In 1975, there was no organized recreational volleyball in Richmond. Several cohorts at Reynolds Metals began to talk of organizing a league and initiated a 14 team league comprised of people who worked at Reynolds, their friends and fellow apartment complex dwellers. The idea caught on and others met at Honda World and organized The Richmond Amateur Volleyball League, or TRAVL, which was an all volunteer organization. By 1979 Richmond had probably more organized recreational volleyball than any other locality in Virginia. The players, wanting a winter season, had also formed the Fan League. For the next number of years, more teams were formed as word of mouth got out about the league. 

In 1981, both leagues merged with the opportunity of having their own facility and the clubs were renamed the Richmond Volleyball Club, which began playing with approximately 50 teams. 

With massive expansion and formation of additional teams, room at its previous two buildings became inadequate to meet the demands of both junior and adult leagues.

In 2009 RVC moved to a location in Henrico County which made RVC the largest unofficial, pure indoor volleyball facility in the country.

Currently, RVC organizes a youth athlete program which competes on the National, Regional, and Local levels. There are approximately 500 juniors who compete within the United States Association of Volleyball, with hundreds of others taking instructional clinics/camps. The adult leagues still continue to this day with hundreds of adults playing six nights a week.
