FAQs

WHAT IS THE CLUB PHILOSOPHY?
Our goal is simple, to make each one of our players into the best volleyball players they can be.  We will be progressive in our training, focusing on things such as the mental side of the game and nutrition, as well as technique and the physical side of the game.  You can find a club anywhere in Milwaukee that will just have your daughter go through drills for 4-6 hours per week, but you will not find many like ours that realize volleyball is more than a physical game.

WHAT IS THE CLUB'S POLICY ON PLAYING TIME?
We realize players sign up to play any sport to play the game.  We strive to get every player into every match, though that is not a guarantee.  With so many different positions and the roles those positions play, it is nearly impossible for any coach to give truly equal playing time.  We do strive to give fair playing time.

WHAT AGE GROUPS DO YOU OFFER?
For the 2018-19 season, we will be offering girls 15s-18s teams.  Players can certainly play up a level, and we encourage that for players with the skills to compete at the next highest age level.  Players will not be able to play down a level.

WHAT ARE YOUR CLUB DUES? IS THERE A PAYMENT SCHEDULE?
Club dues for the 2018-19 season will depend on what age level you play at (see the list below).  Club dues cover facility rentals for practice time, coach salaries, equipment, tournament fees, a complete uniform and warm-up package, and administrative fees.  Please note that due to being a "short season" team that practices one time per week, 18s will have a different total dues than our other teams.

15s-17s: $1,100
18s: $500

WHAT IS NOT COVERED IN THAT FEE?
The club dues do not cover the cost of travel for each player and their family.  Any travel arrangements will need to be made by the family of the player.  While the dues do cover a uniform and warm-ups package, they do not include shoes, knee pads, socks, or additional spirit wear.  Those items can be ordered seperately through our online store in November.

WHERE, WHEN AND HOW OFTEN DO YOU PRACTICE?
Practices will be held two times per week for two hours each.  Practices will typically be held on one week night and one weekend date.  Our practice facilities include St. Paul's Lutheran Church-Muskego, and Parkway Apolostolic Chuch-Oak Creek, among others.

ARE PRACTICES MANDATORY? 
We understand that families have other obiligations and players play multiple sports, but if there is a pattern of recurring absenses, it will be left at the coaches' discretion regarding playing time.  If a player misses multiple practices, if may effect that playing time.

HOW LONG IS YOUR SEASON?
Tryouts will be held in November with practices beginning in early December.  The season typically runs through the end of April, though that may change if a team elects to attend a national tournament in June.

HOW FAR WILL EACH TEAM BE TRAVELING?
We feel in order to be the best, you have to play the best.  At this moment in time there is some good competition outside of the city of Milwaukee.  Our teams will have tournaments in the Fox Valley, Madison, Northern Illinois area as well as Milwaukee.  Parents and players may vote to extend their travel further, if wanted.

HOW MANY TOURNNAMENTS WILL MY CHILD BE PLAYING IN?
Each team will play in 12-18 play dates.  This is typically played out over six to eight tournaments.
