RVJ Beach Teams 2018

RVJ Ftiness Class Discount at Weight Club

Hi parents!

Laura Blackburn is the mother of an RVJ player and also the  Group Fitness Director at The Weight Club in Blacksburg. They offer a class called GRIT that is a 30 minute High Intensity Interval Training class that focuses on athletic performance as well as agility and body weight strength and conditioning.


The girls are all invited to try the class on Wednesday afternoon at 4:45pm. They’re hosting a free guest week so if you’d like to come see what the class is about or even try the class, you’re more than welcome to.


If you’re interested in letting your daughter participate, the cost after next week will be $3 per class, available through a 10 visit punch card. The girls would only be able to take the GRIT classes when offered through the card. If you’d like the girls to purchase a membership, the rate is $154 for the student membership through May 16. They would have full access to the gym and all classes if interested.


This class would be a great compliment to their on-court training in that it would focus on the fast-twitch muscle fibers the girls need to increase their agility and power.


If you have any questions, you can email Laura Blackburn at or visit this link to see a sample GRIT class.

RVJ Beach Teams Interest Meeting

We are trying to get the athletes interested in the beach side of volleyball. This year we would like to try to put together some teams that would travel to Virginia Beach, Lynchburg and to North Carolina for about 4-5 tournaments during the months of April-June. We are looking for ages 14-18!

We are having an interest meeting March 8th at BHS at 2:45pm. We will hand out a tentative tournament and practice schedule.

If you have any questions, please email
