Click on the Tune-Ups/Tryouts tab to the left 4 more.
The Tune-Up Season begins this Thursday September 10th
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:
- Each athlete increased their vertical by a minimum of 1 inch
- 4 athletes made freshman (at DSHA, Hartford, KML & Slinger)
- 7 made JV (at Brookfield East, DSHA, Hartford, Sussex & Oconomowoc)
- 1 athlete made it to the varsity team (as a freshman @ Kettle Moraine Lutheran)
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 you at tune-ups and try-outs in Oct/Nov!!!
About a month ago, Adversity-Wisconsin VBC coaches Duane Basterash & Dave Pauers took our training
methods and skill progressions on the road (almost 3 hours away) to a small town in Northern Wisconsin called Edgar.
The 3 day skills camp included: a 1.5 hour varsity team camp, a 5 hour communication & skills camp for grades
8-12 and a skills incentive camp for grades 3-7. All 3 groups were coachable, progressed in skills and learned a
thing or 2 about skills & communication (verbal & non-verbal); not to mention, had loads of challenges & fun daily!
Recently, I was able to catch up with the varsity team at UW-Whitewater at their 1st tournament of the year. After
a slow start on day 1, the team really stepped up their passing day 2 to finish 2nd in their pool! Wins and losses are
one thing, but making steps in the right direction are another!
This year's Edgar Varsity Team is an amazing group of girls who are lead by head coach Breit Nelson. Win or lose, this group sees the bigger picture - it's about improving, loving the sport, hanging with your friends & TEAM! These are the kind of athletes, teams and coaches we are attracted to and the kinds of families and players we surround ourselves with year in and year out! Best wishes to all Edgar teams in their 2015 seasons - Go Wildcats!!!
As we enter our 7th consecutive club season, we are seeking quality Head Coaches who:
Are looking for various opportunities from 12’s-18’s
Want to make an impact with area athletes and families
Can develop skills in individuals within a supportive team setting
Continue to look for opportunities to learn & grow (are coachable themselves)
Ideally wish to dedicate themselves to a progressive club who is climbing the ladder
At Adversity-Wisconsin VBC our goal is for individuals and teams to PEAK in April, May & June when it matters most. This can be a challenge with extended seasons, class trips, injuries, line-up & roster changes, graduations, new and returning players, some never attending nationals prior to joining our club, etc. I am proud to say our athletes, coaches and their families faced adversity and overcame the majority of challenges and obstacles in their way:
12-1's = 2nd out of 24 Teams (WI Dells 2 Day)
13-1's = 43rd out of 80 Teams (AAU Nationals)
14-1's = 21st out of 125 Teams (AAU Nationals)
15-1's = 6-0 Run Day 2 & 3 (AAU Nationals)
16-1's = 20th out of 152 Teams (AAU Nationals)
17-1's = 5th out of 124 Teams (AAU Nationals)
18-1's = 5th out of 48 Teams (Navy Pier Final)
Congrats to Demi Rae Dunham (17-1's) who was selected as an AAU All-American at Nationals!
Congrats to Gianna Feld (13-1's) who was selected to the Badger Region National Select team March 13th!
Congrats to our very own 17-1's & Dan Rogutich for a "TOP 5" finish at AAU Nationals (out of 125 Teams)!
Adversity-Wisconsin VBC 14-1's athletes celebrated Mother's Day on May 9th by inviting all moms to come in and observe the last half of practice where all modified games and scrimmage opportunities were dedicated to "our moms"! Upon entering ATC, all moms were treated to a Mother's Day Quilt in which our team listed the reasons each mom is so special to us. At the end of the celebration, each mom recieved a rose in honor of all they do for each and every one of us! Thank You Moms!!!
This year's Father-Daughter Scrimmage was a little more competetive with all our cool dads coming in to face us head to head! The scrimmage was filled with a "dads" playlist of their favorite 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and recent songs and artists of their choice. The music helped the dads tie our girls with a 2-2 match record on the night! Thanks to all Adversity-Wisconsin VBC moms and dads at all ages for their support! We truly have an amazing thing going within our first 6 years of club existance!
Our ever popular Summer Series sessions are now available for sign up on a first come first serve basis.
