Next Level Volleyball Club teams at the 14s, 15s, 16s, 17s and 18s levels traveled to the JVA World Challenge in Louisville, Kentucky. The competition was excellent, medals and plaques were earned, the 14 Green team was honored for raising the 2nd highest dollar amount for Dig Pink and The Assist Project. A great time was had at a great event!
The 14 Green team coached by Katie and Hannah Ratkowski model their 1st Place Gold tees and trophy (on display at the Sports Complex) after winning the March Mania event hosted in Wisconsin Dells. The team marched through the event without a match loss. Nice job ladies!
Next Level Volleyball Club is pleased to announce that it has entered into a sponsorship agreement with NIKE®. After meetings and contract reviews, the club is set to move onward and upward with some great changes! Lids Team Sports, based out of Indianapolis, will be handling the club’s uniform needs, along with coaching apparel and a designated website for spirit wear and other great Nike® products. Next Level will also continue its great relationship with the Ultra Ankle® organization. Players can purchase the high performance ankle braces at reduced prices through the Club. One team will be chosen each year to receive free ankles for each player.
Next Level Volleyball Club is a member of USAV, JVA (in association with AVCA) and AAU. Our teams participate in events sponsored by each volleyball organization. While everyone is familiar with our own Badger Region (who is clearly a leader in the realm of volleyball across the country) and USAV volleyball, it’s important to recognize that there are other well organized groups offering excellent competition venues for our athletes. “JVA is a national association of Junior Club Directors who want to improve volleyball. The Mission of the Junior Volleyball Association is to promote the growth of youth and junior volleyball through program and resource development, education and events.” AVCA is an invaluable resource for volleyball coaches. It produces “Coaching Volleyball” and “Power Tips” – two valuable periodicals for coaches. The Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) was established in 1888 to provide a national governance of amateur athletics at every level and for multiple sports. Links to the these organizations can be found on our “Links” page. We invite you to visit each organization’s website to gather invaluable information and enhance your knowledge of the sport of volleyball.
