Rio Volleyball Club

When it comes to Rio Volleyball, Rafael Silva, the club’s head coach and club director, believes that a player’s effectiveness on the court is directly related to the amount of work he or she puts into practice. Coaches, parents, and players all have a responsibility to show respect for the game, each other, and our opponents via their words, actions, and attitudes. There is an expectation that players will come up for practice intellectually, emotionally, and physically prepared to put up their best effort.

Rio has a skilled and devoted coaching staff that focuses on establishing age-appropriate principles and strengthening abilities, as well as educating girls to work hard and learn to operate as a team. Girls train 3 to 4 days a week, depending on their age and ability, with a combination of team practice, skills clinics, agility, and fitness.

Rio teams practice harder and spend less time at tournaments than other clubs, but the strategy has shown to be effective, as 37 percent of their teams won invites to USAV Nationals in their first year, a better performance than all but one of Atlanta’s big clubs.
