Parents and potential players that are interested in trying out for the Wisconsin Ice VBC 2017 season can attend the Parent & Potential Player Informational Meeting that will be held on Sunday, October 23, 2016, at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School in Mosinee from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm. A general question and answer session will follow from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm to ask any questions you might still have about Wisconsin Ice after the presentation. There will also be an opportunity from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm to ask questions one-on-one with the Directors of Wisconsin Ice.
After the Informational Meeting, the first optional Tune-Up Session of the three sessions will be held from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School to help players prepare for the Tryouts. There is more information regarding these Tune-Up Sessions in an earlier article on this website home page.
All players and coaches in the gym during the Tune-Up Sessions must be members of Badger Region/USAV. If you played for a Badger Region/USAV volleyball club last season, then your membership is still valid until the end of October, so you would not need to renew your membership until the third Tune-Up Session. If you did not participate with a Club last season, then you must register on Webpoint before participating in your first Tune-Up Session. Please see the article that explains the steps for registration for Wisconsin Ice VBC 2017 Season Tryouts in an article on this home page for more information on how to register for your membership with Badger Region/USAV.
You must print out and bring your Badger Region/USAV membership card with you to show at the registration table when you sign up at the door for the Tune-Up Sessions.
The Wisconsin Ice VBC 2017 Club Season will be starting soon with the Tryouts and All Call scheduled for the weekend of November 12 & 13, 2016. Parents and/or players can begin registering the players for the Tryouts and All Call now following the steps shown in the "Steps for Registration for Wisconsin Ice VBC 2017 Season Tryouts" article shown below; however it might be best to wait until after the Parent & Potential Player Informational Meeting that is scheduled for Sunday, October 23, 2016, to make sure that all of your questions are answered. The Tryouts and All Call registration process will be reviewed at the Informational Meeting. The registration process must be completed by November 10, to avoid a late registration fee.
If players are interested in the Tune-Up Sessions, to help players prepare for the Tryouts, that will be offered on the three consecutive Sundays starting on October 23, after the Informational Meeting, then the players must complete step 1 of the Steps for Registration for the Tryouts before they participate in their first Tune-Up Session. This is your registration with the Badger Region/USA Volleyball and this membership is required before participating in any Badger Region/USAV sanctioned event.

The $10 fee for this session must be paid at the door before the session begins (checks should be written to “Wisconsin Ice VBC”. All players and coaches must be a member of USAV by registering on Webpoint in order to participate in these Tune-Up sessions. Players that played on a USAV Juniors team last season and coaches that coached last season for Wisconsin Ice VBC have a USAV membership that is good through the end of October, 2016, so these players and coaches will not need to register with USAV until the third Tune-Ups session on Sunday, November 6. Any person that wishes to participate that is new to USAV Juniors volleyball must be registered on Webpoint before the start of the session. You must show your USAV membership card when paying your fee for Tune-Ups when you enter the gym.
The Tryouts & Skills Assessment for girls’ 13s-18s and the “All Call” for Ice Chips and Ice Shavings girls and boys for the 2017 season will be held on November 12 & 13, 2016, at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School, 601 Maple Ridge Road, Mosinee, Wisconsin 54455, in the gymnasium.
Players wishing to be involved with Wisconsin Ice VBC in the 13s-18s programs must be present at the Tryouts & Skills Assessment.
The purpose of the “All Call” is to view the potential Chips players in action as they learn volleyball skills with the intention of forming teams with similar athletic skill levels and to view the range of skill levels of the potential Shavings players. Girls and Boys are both welcome at the Chips and Shavings levels.
