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.
For the 2017-18 season, we will be fielding one Badger Region Girls’ HP teams in each of the following divisions:
– Girls’ National Select (born in 2004 and after)
– Girls’ International Youth (born in 2002 and after)
Starting with the 2018 season, coaches must fill out the HP Coaching Application (available here) to be considered for a spot on a High Performance roster.
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. Tryouts will take place at a time and date TBA. Cost for the tryout will be $40 for pre-registered 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 (dates/location TBA) and be eligible to make the Badger Region HP Championship Team at their age division. No refunds are given after June 1.
HP CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS
At the conclusion of the camp, each staff selects 10 players to their Badger Region HP Championship Team. This 10-player roster participates in a team training session on July 22, 2018, and competes at the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships in Tulsa, Okla, July 24-28. Cost for the seven-day trip will be determined and includes all hotel and transportation, tournament entry and related costs as well as a warm-up shirt that the athlete can keep. No refunds are given after June 1.
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 email@example.com.
