OUR MISSION

 

Rivertown Christian Volleyball is a local travel club for homeschooled girls at the junior and senior high levels in the West Michigan area, centrally located in Wyoming. We welcome girls in the 4th grade through their 12th grade year. We have served hundreds of families in the homeschool community for over 10 years and continue to be dedicated to training and teaching the sport of volleyball while using the game to relate to leading a Christian life. While we strive to Build Unity through God's Grace, we will teach your daughters the fundamentals of volleyball, practice teamwork and make friendships that last beyond the sport, all while honoring the talents Christ gifted us. 

We are here to teach the fundamentals of competitive volleyball, practice teamwork, create friendships that lasts beyond the season, and cultivate leadership, all while honoring Christ.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

JULIE 

MULDER

President

I have been happily married for 18 years to Joni. We have six children – Samantha, Darren, Payton, Lily, Josie and Matilda (Tillie). I work as the Operations Manager at Best Metal Products. I was born and raised in Michigan, but Joni is a transplant from Iowa. I look forward to helping RCV continue on in the strong traditions it has started since its inception.

Athletic

Director

I've been happily married to Freda for 28 years. We have four children - Josh 27, Ben 24, Jonathan 20, and Sara 18. We moved to Michigan 3 years ago from Sarasota Florida and we absolutely love it up here. I work full time for Insignia Homes, a local construction company. I've been coaching volleyball for about 6 or 8 years, but I've played volleyball pretty much my whole life. I'm very excited about continuing the excellent traditions of RCV and I look forward to helping young ladies develop relationships and teaching life lessons that are learned through teamwork and
competition. Helping them to grow in character and strengthen their faith in Christ.

Treasurer

I am the mom of Annika Wassink who started playing with RCV in 2019. Annika had such a great year with her coaches and teammates and, the Lord willing, I look forward to seeing how I can serve the RCV program in the future.

Club Coordinator

I have been happily married for 6 years to my husband Chris, together we have a blended family of 7 children, fourteen and under. Our oldest Ella has played
with RCV since 2017. I am also a seasoned and current volleyball player with a 
shared passion for the game looking to revamp the excitement in this homeschool program for both players and parents. It is important we remember who gave us our talents and we encourage the girls to play with a love for Jesus that shines brightly even during competition. I am excited to see where God leads the program with the new doors He has opened for RCV.

VISION AND GOALS

We have expanded our program to form a 12U Elementary team starting the 2021 season. We plan to have more involvement with our Big Sisters Program having a coordinator to lead our girls in forming those bonds. We will again host a home tournament and attend many away tournaments. Our Elementary team will have the opportunity to play at the State Tournament (typically at the end of October, but no official date yet). Our Middle School team will get to join the Midwest Volleyball Classic Tournament in Ft Wayne, Indiana (October 8-9), plus attend the State Tournament as well in Mt Pleasant. Our JV team will have the home tournament, Midwest Volleyball Classic, State Tournament and possibly one other tournament. Varsity will have the opportunity to attend the Officials for Kids, Midwest Volleyball Classic, State Tournament and the National Homeschool Volleyball Tournament (October 27-30, held in Omaha, Nebraska last year) 

We still plan to have weekly devotions, but would like to create more connection between the lesson and our practices. We would like our big sisters to lead devotions for their little sisters at times too. We would like to see our girls and coaches influencing each other to be compassionate, loving, kind-hearted, encouraging and bring the best out of each other, even when losing a game or not playing their best. We are striving to create a "What to Expect" model for each team so that everyone knows what expect from the coaching at each level and for that model to be consistent from elementary through varsity. We are still working on this so please share ideas or thoughts if you would like.  We hope that all of our players, coaches and family members can embrace the vision we have to create a Christ-honoring volleyball program. There will be a zero tolerance policy for "mean girls" or "bullying" or even just down-right poor attitudes consistently from players, coaches or family members. We want this to be a program that shows God's love to all those we encounter.
