1. Where do we train?
We train at Wisconsin State Fair Products Pavilion just off of the 84th St. exit at I-94. Close and convenient access for most Milwaukee, Waukesha, and Ozaukee county families. We also use Nicolet High School and Pius XI Catholic High School as back ups and for an occasional added practice.
2. When do we train?
We practice regularly at State Fair on Mondays and Wednesday, 5:30-7:30 or 7:30-9:30 depending on age group.
3. How often do we practice?
Teams train twice per week.
4. How does the club view conflicts with a school sport?
Our view is that a player’s school sport should come first, club volleyball should come second. We do not force players to choose between other high school athletics and club volleyball. We STRESS player-to-coach communication so that we are aware of any school sport conflicts as far ahead of time as possible.
5. What type of season is club volleyball?
Club volleyball consists of the 2 weekly training sessions as described above and tournaments on the weekends. Events are one day only, Saturday or Sunday; bigger events would cover both Saturday and Sunday, and we may enter a 3-day festival event which could require a missed school day. We enter these tournaments because they have the best competition available for our players.
6. Is there any travel?
We anticipate traveling to the greater Chicago area 2-4 times in December-February and May-June. There will also be tournaments in the SE part of Wisconsin. A majority of our teams from 14U through 18U will travel to AAU Nationals in Orlando, FL in late June-early July for a four day tournament.
Boys 12-under: This team will compete in several local tournaments.
7. When traveling, do parents have to also attend?
No, a parent for each athlete is not required to attend. If we feel there are not enough parents attending a tournament to supervise players, we will ask for 2 parents to serve as chaperones for that event. Players and parents need to coordinate hotel arrangements.
8. How many players to you take on a team?
Ideally we like to have 10-12 players on a team.
9. How long is the season?
Boys: Our B14s, B15s, B16s, B17s, and B18s teams begin their season after tryouts and will conclude their season at the AAU Junior National Championships in June-July. F
Our B12s and B13s teams begin their season after tryouts and will conclude their season at the Badger Region Championships in late March. If they wish to extend their season into the summer, that option may be available.
10. What are the costs?
The cost for MVC is based on the Club Fee plus Travel/Tournament Costs. The club fee covers the cost of uniforms, gym time, equipment costs, administrative fees, coaching and office costs. Tournament costs are based on tournament fees, hotels, and travel costs per tournaments. Please contact Director Brad Kuehl at email@example.com for further information.
