Grand Rapids Community College’s nationally ranked volleyball team will start its season next month — but without fans in the stands, following state health and wellness guidelines during the pandemic.
Raiders fans will still be able to follow the action online through a new partnership with the Michigan Sports Radio.
All home volleyball and basketball home games will be streamed through the organization’s website, michigansportsradio.com, including postseason games. Games will be archived on the GRCC Athletics YouTube channel.
“The safety and wellness of our student athletes is our top priority,” Interim Athletic Director Dave Selmon said. “While we’re disappointed fans can’t cheer on the Raiders in person, we’re glad we can show the games online. This partnership will allow people to enjoy the games, whether they are here in Grand Rapids or around the world.”
The Raiders volleyball team, ranked fourth in the nation in the first poll National Junior College Athletic Association poll, is scheduled to take on Glen Oaks Community College at home on Feb. 12.
