Next Level Volleyball Club 15s, 16s, 17s and 18s teams participate in DISC Assessments!
Sue Medley, Gladjean Consulting, Inc., works with athletic programs as an outside consultant focusing on improving team and individual performance. She works with numerous collegiate and club programs across the country, including Kelly Sheffield and our own Wisconsin Badgers volleyball team. Sue flew in from New York to join coaches and players on March 3rd and 4th to provide on-site evaluations and input into the DISC evaluations. Next Level coaches have already implemented numerous changes to practice plans seeing immediate results in team performance. The program was a huge success and we intend to offer the assessment to our players every two years.

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.
