The overall ojectives within the large motor activities were to have a:
B = Be respectful
A = Always Have Fun

This years PoweAde Point Challenge & various scrimmage opportunities have already begun! Our older teams have scrimmaged in Appleton, Illinois & Waukesha; while the younger age groups teams have traveled to Oconomowoc, Waukesha & West Bend. Our club also hosts teams to visit our new training center (ATC) on one of their off days to participate in 2-3-4 and even 5-Team scrimmages.
Benefits of Participating in our very own Powerade Points Challenges include: Focusing on serve-receive and 3 contacts, increasing your team defense to win games, earning points as a team, preparing for live competition & developing athletes with character (a focus on winning, losing & sportsmanship). Score is always kept, whistles are always used and competition and fun is had by all! No parking fees, a new Gatorade machine and plenty of seating makes this experience enjoyable for the athletes, coaches, parents, family & friends!
For more information about our new training center (ATC) or to
schedule your scrimmage experience, contact Dave Pauers at 262-707-1003.
For years, parent feedback has suggested we increase the training at the younger ages to allow our athletes and their coaches the opportunity to develop skills & train using the specific drills and challenges that have proven successful with the 14 & Up teams (most concepts & philosophies tested time and time again against some of the top teams in the state).
For the 2015-2016 club season, we have implemented the 2nd Annual Progressive Skill Training (PST) under the Adversity-Wisconsin VBC & Adversity Training Center (ATC) Umbrella! The training has once again proven successful with our 12-1 & 13-1 teams serving the competition off the court and placing top 3 in the majority of all their tourneys.
Future Development & Focus Areas will Include: block training, combination drills, line attacks & advanced serve-receive formations (just to name a few). PST is just another added bonus for considering coaching or playing for Adversity-Wisconsin VBC!
The Performance Enhancement Program (PEP) through Froedtert is included in the 14's-17's all inclusive club dues and this year results on paper and in the gym were nothing short of amazing! Highlights below:
- Athlete's typically increased their vertical by a minimum of 1 inch
- The majority of teams participated once a week for 12 weeks total
- Every team took part December through March at the Watertown Plank location
- These 12 sessions have proven to increase shoulder strength & prepare athlete's for competition
The skill training at our "NEW" Facility combined with PEP is a tough combination to beat! For more information on PEP, click here. For more information on our new training facility, see the training centers tab to the left! We look forward to seeing our teams progress as they prepare to play their best at AAU Nationals in Orlando, Florida in June !!!
We have had multiple area businesses that have been instrumental in supporting area athletes, our club and our very own training center (ATC)! These generous groups have invested considerable amounts of time and/or resources to help
us get off the ground running. All contributions aid in the overall development of various instructional programs offered by Adversity-Wisconsin VBC. We are honored to put these current sponsors in the SPOTLIGHT.
Please visit the sponsor opportunities tab to the left to view our current sponsors!

Your coaches put a great deal of time into preparing for each practice, but in extreme weather, safety comes first. YOU decide what is best for your family, so travel to practices at your discretion. When poor driving conditions exist, please check here for any possible updates. Should the coaches decide to cancel practice, they will email you & post cancellations here prior to practice.
Each year tournament directors tell us that they will never cancel a tournament due to extreme weather. So on tournament days when severe weather conditions exist, plan ahead. Leave early and drive with extreme caution! Your safety is more important than the game itself!
Merry Christmas from our family to yours! Whether your a current member of Adversity-Wisconsin VBC, played with us in the past or are training elsewhere, we wish all area juniors and their families a safe holiday filled with

Increased Mastery & Professional Application of Coaching Theory is the basic certification required by the badger region which typical involves 3 hours of off-court (classroom) training in the areas of ethics, motor skill development, positive feedback, parent responsibilities, rules, practice planning, etc.
In addition, some of our coaches have a 3 hour training that we implement based on our staff, their experience and availability prior to try-outs.
