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!

Recently, Arabella Vallee & Analiese Glawe participated in the 1ST EVER doubles training at ATC (our new training facility in Germantown, Wisconsin).
The duo from Wauwatosa focused on doubles concepts in preparation for summer and high school try-outs in fall. Focus areas addressed were serving on angles, serve-receive, attacking & 3 contact drills. The entire session was built around individual and team goals.
Additional coaches and players were also brought in to provide a competetive environment and doubles strategy within the game. Kudo's to both girls and their parents for providing a detailed session around their busy schedules to further their skills and consistency as partners! if interested in indoor or sand doubles training, contact Dave Pauers (262-707-1003).

Congrats to all 3 teams on their on-court success!!!
Our club has always believed that the Great Lakes Power League (GLPL) is not a one size fits all type of tournament. If planned according to team strength, dedication and future goals, it can be an excellent choice for the "right" team. Our current 17-1's team proved just that! Over the course of the 7 day competetive tournament the team went 11-10 with 7 of the 21 matches going to 3 sets. Coach Rogutich's team was seeded 138th and finished 80th out of 148 teams total; proving that the right team, coach and club can be successful at GLPL! Congrats to the 17-1's team on their success!
