Our Travel teams are a tryout based team that is designed for the athlete who wants to pursue their personal best as a volleyball player. We work hard to schedule around high school sports and extracurricular activities and in return expect player's dedication when not participating in school activities. They have a two time per week commitment, either two practices or a practice and a competition. The travel teams will attend 5 tournaments. Their season begins with practices in December and ends with a competition in April.
Our Taste of Tier (TOT) is designed for ALL athletes presently in grades 5th - 8th, who want to continue to play volleyball after their school season but do not want the time commitment, travel and cost commitment of a club team. TOT starts in January, practices 6 times a month and finishes in April with a festival tournament in Wisconsin Dells, WI.
Our Look What I Learned (LWIL) is a program designed for all children in grades 2nd - 5th. It is a 10 week commitment that begins in February and end with a night for the kid to show their parents, "Look What I Learned".
