Adult league registering
LAKE WYLIE -- River Hills Community Church is starting an 18 and older co-ed recreational volleyball program March 17 to run through May 26 in the Life Center gym. Registration forms must be received by March 13.
The program is being managed by Don and Linda Murfin, who joined RHCC in March 2008, transferring their membership from The Chapel in Akron, Ohio where they managed the volleyball program.
Never miss a local story.
Membership at RHCC is not required. It is focused on building Christian fellowship and recreational enjoyment.
The games will be self scoring and self refereed. Teams of 8 to 10 individuals, mixed as evenly as possible between men and women, will be formed to achieve at least six people each night. Aggressive play will not be permitted.
Rally scoring will be used to keep the games moving. Team captains will be recruited from among the players.
Depending on the response, play times will be a maximum of 90 minutes. Play will start promptly at 7 p.m.
If two sessions are needed to handle the number of people desiring to play, the second session will start at 8:30 p.m. and the teams will rotate between the two sessions.
Registration forms are available at the church office, 104 Hamilton's Ferry Road, or online at rhcconline.org. For more information, call 803-831-1616.
