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 = 5th out of 24 Teams (WI Dells 2 Day)
13-1's = 9th out of 144 Teams (AAU Nationals)
14-1's = 24th out of 158 Teams (AAU Nationals)
15-1's = 49th out of 117 Teams (AAU Nationals)
16-1's = 15th out of 101 Teams (AAU Nationals)
17-1's = 5th out of 106 Teams (AAU Nationals)
18-1's = To Be Added in 2016 (AAU Nationals)

We are proud to say that we are partnering with 2 The Max to provide our very own In-House Performance (IHP) training for our 13's-16's club teams starting with the 2016/2017 club season.
A Brief History:
Jake McComis (owner of 2 The Max) was referred to us by one of our 13's parents whose daughter not only played for us, but was also working on acceleration, balance, explosiveness, coordination, deceleration, power, etc. at this other facility. I had to go see for myself what this place was all about. Shortly after, I took my 14's team there for a a brief 2 hour supplemental training (always good to get out of the gym towards the end of a long season). I was sold, begun my own personal training sessions, encouraged our younger age group coaches to suplement their training by giving Jake a try and the rest is history! This is an amazing opportunity for our athletes & club!
Investing in Athletes:
As soon as we signed the contract for the upcoming club season, we immediately made an investment into our athletes, facility & future training sessions by purchasing 6 sets of TRX suspension training harnesses, exercise balls, foam rollers, 3 levels of resistance bands for lower body balance, conditioning & performance! The equipment is already being tested by summer series athletes to prepare them for fall try-outs!
To kick off this partnership, Jake is offering 4 individual & small group sessions for athletes at ATC for grades 6-8 & 9-12. Here's your chance to give 2 The Max a test run, become familiar with various equipment at ATC (including TRX suspension training) and see what we have to offer! Dates to chose from include: August 7th/14th (Grades 6-8 are 6-6:45pm) (grades 9-12 are 7-7:45pm). Cost is $35 per session or 4 for $100. To sign-up online, please visit:

About a month ago, Adversity-Wisconsin VBC coaches Dave Pauers & Duane Basterash took our training
methods and skill progressions on the road (almost 3 hours away) to a small town in Northern Wisconsin called Edgar.
For our 2nd consecutive year, we made some major changes including: increasing our staff from 2 to 5. This allowed us
the opportunity to add Dawn, Galina & Kierra Koepke to our 4 day training! The result was more repititions, more skill building & team challenges, less down time & increase confidence for all particpants involved!
Leaving thew hotel at 7am and retuning at 6pm at night was worth every second. All 3 groups daily were coachable, progressed in skills and learned a thing or 2 about skills & communication; not to mention, had loads of challenges & fun daily!
The varsity team has our full support as they play this weekend at UW-Whitewater. 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 2016 seasons - Go Wildcats!!!
A huge congrats to ALL Adversity-Wisconsin VBC teams on the best club season ever since our inaugural debut in 2009/2010. Our club goal is for all teams to peak (technically produce the best results of the year) in April, May & June when it matters most! This can be a challenge with extended seasons, graduations, injuries & line-up adaptations, past experience at nationals, etc.
I am proud to say our athletes, coaches & their families faced & overcame many challenges and obstacles on their way to producing "The Best" Post-Season Results & Final Finishes in our short 7 year history! Super Regional results. Sports Performance Youth Classic & Mizuno Pre-National final finishes. Your 2016 AAU National results are listed here.
Congrats as your dedication, hard work & perseverance truly paid off!
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!
For more information on how you can sponsor, please contact Dave Pauers at 262-707-1003 (email under staff bios).
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!
On Wednesday March 23rd, Willow Creek Daycare made it's 2nd Annual Spring Fieldtrip to our very own Adversity Training Center (ATC). Five stations and almost 50 kids later, fun was had by all! The Pre-K through 5 year olds took part in parachute games, bean bag toss, obstacle courses, had snowball fights (with soft fleece yarn balls of course), played misquito tag, had shopping cart relays (which included sorting and counting), played hot potatoe & more! The overall ojectives within the large motor activities were to have a:
B = Be respectful
A = Always Have Fun
L = Listen to Others
L = Line-Up 4 Centers
