All team training sessions for tonight 1/8/15 are canceled due to weather
We are still working on the spirit wear in an attempt to have it completed prior to Christmas, but it is looking unlikely. We had our biggest sale ever with over 650 items sold. Getting that completed will not be the issue. The problem is that of those garments 399 of them get personalization which takes a lot of time. We are still working on it and trying our best to get in done in time. As mentioned at the parent meeting we would try our best but could not guarantee it. Any other updates will be posted on our social media feeds.
From all of us at MVC have a wonderful Holiday Season!!!
MVC is proud to say that all 6 of the Journal Sentinel 1st Team All-Area players either currently play for, or have played for MVC in the past. Current 18-Jake players include Player of the Year Ben Plaisted (Tosa East), Karl Apfelbach (Shorewood), Nolan Rueter (Burlington) and Chandler North (CMH). MUHS players and 1st Team selections, Will Cotter and Joe Coplan, have chosen not to play club volleyball during their senior year but were integral members of last year's 17-Jake team.
4 of the 6 players named to 2nd Team All-Area who currently play, or have played for MVC, are Luke Turner (Waukesha West), Mickey Sugar (New Berlin United), Brooks Gahart (Westosha Central) and Jon Averkamp (Germantown) - who are are happy to announce has accepted a basketball scholarship to St. Cloud State. Best of luck Jon - great high school and club career!
That puts 7 of 12 All-Area players on MVC 18-Jake this season! Going to be an exciting group to watch!
MVC was honored to have UC-Irvine's David Kniffin come to Nicolet High School this past Sunday, December 1st, for a 2 hour clinic. Coach Kniffin's UC-Irvine Anteaters won the D1 NCAA National Championship in 2013 and he was named Volleyball Magazine's Coach of the Year.
Coach Kniffin met with MVC coaches for a coffee and donuts session for about 90 minutes before the clinic on Sunday. The staff learned a great deal about Kniffin's coaching philosophy on both micro and micro approaches to volleyball.
In the 2 hours that Coach Kniffin spent in the gym with MVC staff and players, he went through two key skills that we will be focusing on heavily this year - swing blocking and attacking with maximum force. The players who participated saw immediate improvement and the MVC staff walked away as better coaches.
We thank Coach Kniffin for coming and spending some time with MVC!
