December 1, 2023 - Pro Volleyball Federation (PVF) - Grand Rapids Rise News Release

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - After gathering all the front office and roster pieces over the last 12 months, the Grand Rapids Rise will bring everyone together next week for the first time as a collective team.

The Pro Volleyball Federation franchise will hold a three-day mini-camp, with practices being held Tuesday (Dec. 5), Wednesday (Dec. 6) and Friday (Dec. 8) from 1-4 p.m. each day at the MSA Fieldhouse (5435 28th Street St. Ct. SE).

"It's hard to believe that we are finally here and the mini-camp is fast approaching," said Rise head coach Cathy George. "It's been over a year of hard work, making this a reality. As the team arrives, there is a new form of excitement to begin this journey. It's going to be awesome to see how this team comes together. We finally get to see how everyone's strengths blend together as we make plans for our championship run."

Fourteen players are expected to report for the Rise mini-camp.

The three mini-camp practice sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday are closed to the public but are open to media. Interviews can be conducted after practice each day at 4 p.m.

The Rise are also hosting their free "Meet the Team" Showcase on Thursday, Dec. 7, from 6-8 p.m. inside Van Andel Arena. This will be the public's first chance to see the Rise in action. Following a sold-out kids' clinic from 5-6 p.m. and a serving contest to win 2024 Rise season tickets from 6-7 p.m., the main event will begin at 7 p.m. with Rise player introductions and a skills showcase. The evening will conclude with an autograph session with the Rise team and coaching staff.
