Welcome to the 2016 Wisconsin Ice VBC Season. All teams will have their first practice this coming Sunday, November 29, according to the tentative November/December practice schedule included with this article. The practice schedule is tentative at this time because there might be conflicts for coaches and/or players that will become more apparent after the coaches discuss their practice schedules with the players at their first practice. We will update the practice schedule at a later date if there are any changes that are required to be made to accommodate any conflicts.

We would like to thank all of the parent volunteers, the coaches, and the Coordinators for all of their hard work this past weekend at the Wisconsin Ice VBC Tryouts. We also thank all of the players that tried out for Wisconsin Ice VBC for the upcoming 2016 season. We were amazed at the number of players and the amount of talent that was in the gym at every age level. It is great to see that the level of volleyball in the central Wisconsin area has improved so much in the last several years!
Players that tried out and that did not receive an offer yet, we ask you for your patience as players that were offered respond to their offers. Several of the teams are full already with committed players; however we are waiting for some players to respond to their offers to complete a few of the teams. Players that did not play for Wisconsin Ice in the past have until Thursday at 9:01 pm to respond to their offer at which time their offer is null and void. We are attempting to do everything in our power to place all of the players that wish to play for Wisconsin Ice for the upcoming season.
Once you have received and accepted an offer to play for Wisconsin Ice VBC for the 2016 season, please mail your membership fee payment and page 25 of the Wisconsin Ice VBC 2106 Handbook to Wisconsin Ice VBC, Jay Johnson, 2501 Springville Drive, Plover, WI 54467. The payment and Handbook form must be received by Wisconsin Ice before the first practice, which is on November 29, for all players.
The practice schedule will be posted on the Wisconsin Ice website as soon as it is finalized by the coaches and the directors. You should be contacted by your coaches before your first practice.
Thank you for your patience with the Tryout process and we look forward to a fun and successful season for all of the Wisconsin Ice teams.

Wisconsin Ice VBC will be sponsoring an optional fundraiser for the 2016 season for those players that need financial assistance to pay their membership fees. Only Wisconsin Ice VBC Players, who have paid their membership fees in full or who are on an approved payment plan, and their parents are able to participate in the optional Pizza Fundraiser that will be administered by Wisconsin Ice VBC for the 2016 season to assist you with paying your membership fees.
Danny Rozwadowski from Hansen Foods will be the Fundraiser Administrator for this Wisconsin Ice 2016 optional fundraiser. Danny will collect your pizza orders with one personal check written to "Wisconsin Ice VBC" on December 6, 2015, 1:00-3:00 pm, at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School in Mosinee. No third party checks will be accepted. Your orders must be hand delivered to Danny during the assigned time period at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School. Do not give your order to your Team Parent, Coaches, or Directors. It must be given directly to Danny.
The pizza order distribution by Danny will be held on December 13, 2015, 1:30-4:00 pm, at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School. All pizzas must be picked up during this time period. The cost for each pizza is $12. You write one check (no cash) to "Wisconsin Ice VBC" for all of the pizzas that you sell. The check should include $6 for each pizza that you sold and you keep the remaining $6 for each pizza sold to defray the cost of your membership fee.

Thank you to everyone that attended the Parent & Potential Player Informational Meeting on Sunday, October 25, in the afternoon at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School. It was a packed house.
The PowerPoint presentation had an error in it regarding the Tryouts schedule for Sunday, November 15. The 17s/18s tryout, including the 18 National team, is scheduled for 1:30-4:00 pm and the tryouts for the 16s, including the 16 National team, will run from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. The times were presented erroneously in the PowerPoint presentation. These times should match the times that were posted last week for the Tryouts for the weekend of November 14 & 15.
Many parents volunteered for the Spirit Wear Coordinator position this year after the need for someone to take on this position for the 2016 season was announced during the Informational Meeting. We are thankful that there were so many people interested in helping the Club. The Spirit Wear Coordinator position this year will be in the capable hands of Tammy King.
The first Tune-Up session last Sunday evening was very well attended. Please keep in mind that there will be two more Tune-Up sessions to help players prepare for the Tryouts before the Tryouts weekend. The next session will be held this Sunday, November 1, from 4:30-6:30 pm, at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School. The last Tune-Up session is scheduled for November 8, from 5:30-7:30 pm in the Greenheck Fieldhouse in Weston.
Please remember to complete the registration forms for the Tryouts weekend and send them with your payment check to Kent Thomas. The detailed steps for registering for Tryouts are posting on this Home Page.

Register with Badger Region Volleyball Association/USA Volleyball on Webpoint (Registering on WebPoint is not registering for Wisconsin Ice VBC Tryouts)
You must first register with Badger Region/USA Volleyball by following the steps on-line at Webpoint, https://webpoint.usavolleyball.org. (It is probably easier to access Webpoint through the Badger Region Volleyball website, badgervolleyball.org. Once on the Badger Region Volleyball website, you should click on the "MEMBERSHIP" tab on the right end of the tab selections. Then click on the "About Registration" tab. Toward the bottom of the "About Registration" article, click on "here" in the sentence, "To register for a Badger Region membership, click here" and follow the prompts for the member option that applies to you.) This includes filling in the membership information and paying the Badger Region/USAV full member fee of $50 (or $15 Youth Membership for the Shavings Program or Free for 8 years & younger) or the Badger Region/USAV $10 tryout fee on "Webpoint". You will be required to have a credit card to pay this fee online and you will need to print your membership card after you have registered. If you are not sure that you will make it on a team or if you are not sure that you will be playing Club volleyball, then only pay the $10 tryout fee and then you can upgrade your membership and pay the additional $40 at a later date if you do play on a team. The Badger Region will not refund the difference if you pay the full fee and then do not play on a team! Do not pick Wisconsin Ice VBC as your team yet unless you know for sure that you will be playing on a Wisconsin Ice team for the 2015 season. You will do this later after you have been offered a spot on a team and you have accepted the offer.
Please remember that this is registration with the Badger Region Volleyball Association and not with Wisconsin Ice VBC. This fee goes to the Badger Region/USAV and does not cover any fees for Wisconsin Ice VBC. Any potential player that is trying out for Wisconsin Ice VBC must be registered with the Badger Region before Tryouts and Tune-ups or you will not be allowed to enter the gym for the Tryouts and Tune-Ups. This is a Badger Region Volleyball Association rule. You will be required to print out your membership card and show it when checking in for the Tryouts and Tune-ups for Wisconsin Ice VBC.
Register for Wisconsin Ice VBC Tryouts or All Call
To register for Wisconsin Ice VBC Tryouts or All Call, you will be required to send the following (3) forms, which are on the Wisconsin Ice VBC website (www.wisconsinice.net), and your fee to Wisconsin Ice VBC, Kent Thomas, 2241 Heatherton Lane, Plover, WI 54467-2820 (must be received by November 12, 2015, to be eligible for the lower $30 Tryout fee):
Players should sign up and attend the Tryout for the age group that matches their age. If the player chooses to try out at an older age group, then they may pay an additional $30 fee for the 2nd age group for which they would like to try out. If a player is given a formal invitation from a Club Director to attend an additional tryout at an older age group, then the player is not required to pay the additional $30 fee.
If a player has a "bad birthday", then they may try out at either their appropriate age group or the age group of their age level peers or both by paying only one fee. Please place a check mark after "Yes" on the "Wisconsin Ice VBC Tryout Form – 2016" after the question as to whether an age waiver is required. Also fill in the age level or age levels for which you are trying out on the first line of the Wisconsin Ice VBC Tryout Form – 2016.
Please only send the forms that are listed above in this article. Do not send any additional forms that you may have printed off of Webpoint when signing up for your Badger Region/USAV membership.
You will need to bring your current Badger Region/USAV membership card to the Wisconsin Ice Tryouts and Tune-Ups that you printed out from the Badger Region/USAV registration on Webpoint to show when you check in at the registration table; however you will keep this card for your records. It only has to be shown to the people that check you in at the Tryouts or Tune-Ups so that they can confirm that you are registered.
If you sent in your registration early before this information was posted on the Wisconsin Ice VBC website, then please complete and send the correct or missing forms to the address listed in this article.
