The Badger Region Girls’ High Performance (HP) program is an avenue for the region’s premier players to receive training and competition opportunities from some of the top coaches in Badger Region. Our program is the regional chapter of the USA Volleyball’s HP program. As a part of the HP pipeline, our program follows international age definitions and program offerings each year. There are three stages of the Badger Region Girls’ HP program: tryouts, training teams and championship teams.
This season, we will be fielding one Badger Region Girls’ HP teams in each of the following divisions:
– Girls’ National Select (born in 2002 and after)
– Girls’ International Youth (born in 2000 and after)
International Youth Team (Final Travel Roster):

HP TRYOUT (NOW PASSED)
The Badger Region HP tryout is open to any Badger Region member of the appropriate age wishing to join the Badger Region HP program. Attending the tryout allows players to make the Badger Region HP Training Team and ultimately the Badger Region HP Championship Team. To join one of these training teams, a player must attend the Badger Region HP Tryout that will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, March 17, 2017, or the make-up at 6 p.m. March 24, 2017, at the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee. Cost for the tryout will be $40 for pre-registered (prior to 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 16, or Thursday, March 23) and $70 for walk-up registration.
HP TRAINING CAMP
The two 30-player Badger Region HP Training Camp rosters are populated through a tryout process. The offered age divisions for these training teams vary each season (see “Age Divisions” above). Upon making a Badger Region HP Training Team, a player will attend a training camp with her team July 5-7 and be eligible to make the Badger Region HP Championship Team at their age division.
HP CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS
At the conclusion of the camp, each staff of the two 20-person Badger Region HP Training Teams selects 10 players to their Badger Region HP Championship Team. This 10-player roster participates in a team training session on July 16 and competes at the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., July 18-22. Cost for the seven-day trip will be determined and includes all hotel and transportation, tournament entry and related costs as well as a warmup shirt that the athlete can keep. The team will practice July 16, fly out on July 17 as a team and return home on July 23.
The Badger Region is seeking volunteers to work tryouts as court coordinators (running drills/entering downballs) and evaluators (working with lead coaches rating athletes by position). If interested, contact Brian Sharkey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
