CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 16 GREEN TEAM
1ST PLACE ASICS JUNIOR NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!!
On June 13, 2014, the 16 Green Team coached by Norm Sowinski and Assistant Morgan Mutranowski traveled to Navy Pier in Chicago to compete in the annual Asics Junior National Championships. After three days of competition, the team found itself in the finals on Sunday. The team had an outstanding club season, with a majority of 1st place Gold finishes. Needless to say, the girls stepped it up and grabbed the 1st place title. Members of the team are Camryn Bucholtz, Jordyn Dutkiewicz, Katelyn Flayter, Jenna Jones, Marty Martens, Mackenzie Murray, Maria Piotrowski, Lindsay Post, Rebecca Robb, and Kendall Stribling. Kudos to the great coaches and players (and let’s not forget the parents who supported the team throughout the entire season)!
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.
