Junior Olympic volleyball team forms in Pine River area


There’s a new sports team in town — the Pine River Area Renegades Junior Olympics (JO) 17s volleyball team.

JO volleyball — or club volleyball — is competitive youth volleyball that allows kids ages 10-18 to continue to play and improve their skills during the off-season.

Although JO is not affiliated with the school (a JO team can be organized and started by anyone with the desire to do so), one major end-goal is to help build a highly competitive high school team.
