Volleyball is a great backyard game that isn't too difficult to play. Since the 1890s, the game has been played in social settings coast-to-coast, around the world and even in the desert on master jet bases like that one scene from Top Gun--yes, you know the scene. But while RCSSC co-ed. volleyball requires shirts and doesn't suggest wearing jeans to matches, the same spirit of competitively-fun social activity is present.
(DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO: Even if it's a behind-the-back shot that goes out of bounds, just do what you gotta do. A for effort.)

Because the idea of the River City Sport & Social Club is to play sports and be SOCIAL, all teams should patronize one (OR MORE) of RCSSC’s bar sponsors (Home Team Grill, Buffalo Wild Wings, Gus', On The Rox) after each game. These establishments care enough to support RCSSC (YOU), so socially supporting one of our sponsors by having a meal or a few drinks is important. Plus, beer-infused post-game downtime is an essential part of the RCSSC social experience, and these sponsors have been kind enough to offer a player special for all social RCSSC players--as long as they have their team shirt on. Who would say no?
(TEAMWORK: Please do not try to send the ball through the ceiling.)
There are 3 divisions of sports. Not every sport has all 3 divisions. They are based on athleticism and/or a team's newness to the league. Regardless of the division, all teams must be SOCIABLE.
Social: NOT OFFERED
Super Social: The Super Social division is reserved for those players who have decent athletic ability and enjoy being social; neither Maverick nor Ice Man would fit into this category--they're just too darn good and aren't friendly enough. If your standard game of volleyball results in a few good rallies and you don't have to keep running off the court to get the ball, then the Super Social division is a good fit for you. But the main thing to remember about RCSSC is that no matter your ability, you need to be social and have sportsmanship. This division usually has the most teams and players, and the top 16 teams have end-of-season playoff games.
Extreme Social: NOT OFFERED
