We are entering our 27th season at River City Juniors. Our mission is to TEACH all phases of the game of volleyball, starting with sound fundamentals and building to team aspects. We will utilize practice and competition opportunities which will enhance and develop each player's skills. Considered by many coaches in college and HS River City Jrs is one of the top teaching clubs in the midwest.
As in all club programs we feel it will take a strong commitment and networking of coaches, players, and family members to reach our goals. Together we can accomplish many of the tasks involved in running a successful volleyball club.
Deb Grafentin, the Director of River City Juniors, started the club in 1987. With 34 years of volleyball coaching experience in college, high school, and club, her list of accomplishments are well noted, from State Championships to National Championships. Deb has trained numerous All American athletes (HS, college & club), All Conference (HS and college), All Metro (HS) in all positions.
Her staff again this year is loaded with experience and enthusiasm. Coaches in the RC program believe in the philosophy of teaching and train highly competitive players with sound fundamentals.
Here is a great clip about a coach I (Deb Grafentin) had in college. Lin Dunn has been coaching for 44 years and I was fortunate to have her coach me my senior year at the University of Miami. She talks about how Becky Hammond (basketball star) now is coaching with the San Antonia Spurs. Parents, young girls, or anyone in sports that want to get others involved in sports, coaching, leadership roles or more.....take 5 min to watch this clip.
