Badger Region will be hosting the first annual Dale Rohde Memorial Boys’ on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at Center Court in Waukesha, Wis.
The family and friends of Dale Rohde asked that donations be made to fund a special boys’ event in Badger Region that would be sustained in coming seasons.
The tournament is open to any boys’ team interested in participating. To register, click here.
Dale ended his battle with cancer on January 15 at his home in Brookfield. He was an active member of our community as a player, parent and official. In light of his health struggles, USAV bestowed “National Referee – Retired” status to Dale.
Dale was larger than life, a wonderful friend, and an exceptional mentor to those in the volleyball community. He was a true ambassador for our sport and will be dearly missed.
For the past several months following the September Junior Club Director meeting, the Board of Directors has been working on a Junior Player/Club Contact Policy (formerly known as the Recruiting Policy). This new policy, effective Feb. 25, 2014, is designed to protect the interests of a player/their family regarding club contact, yet allow the player/family to seek out information they want from clubs. Please click here for a PDF of the policy and a summary document. Please contact the Region with any questions.
Exciting news! This year at the Badger Region Championships, we will be hosting Dig Pink events to help raise money and awareness for The Side-Out Foundation. Our “pink” days will be March 16 and March 30.
In addition to holding pink activities on-site, we have ways for you and your club to start thinking pink right now!
We’ve created an online donation page to help us reach our goal of raising $5,000 for the Side Out Foundation between now and the final weekend of the Championships. Donate individually, or as a club! https://www.side-out.org/cb/campaigns/campaign/8212
If you want to wear pink at the Badger Region Championships, consider purchasing Dig Pink apparel online at the link below. All proceeds go to the Side-Out foundation, and we will track how many orders are placed by Badger Regionites so we know what we are raising for the cause! Just be sure to write “Badger Region” in the comments/additional instructions section when checking out. Allow for one week when placing orders. http://www.shopdigpink.com/
