BADGER REGION HP ALL-STAR TROUTS, OTHER DETAILS ANNOUNCED FOR 2024

The best of the best are coming together in 2024 for the Badger Region High Performance All-Star program.

That means elite athletes from clubs around the state. Top coaches from colleges and clubs from around the Badger Region. And all topped with an international tournament experience not offered at any other level of junior volleyball.
And that starts with our first round of announcements having to do with tryout, training dates and overnight camps that lead up to the culminating USA All-Star Championships where Badger Region All-Star teams will compete against a full slate of other Region All-Star teams and All-Star teams from international delegations.

Tryouts (register here)

Athletes in the following age groups are eligible to try out for a spot in the Badger Region HP All-Star program in 2024.

  • U19: Boys and Girls born in 2006 and 2007
  • U17: Boys and Girls born in 2008 and 2009
  • U15: Boys and Girls born in 2010, 2011 and elite level athletes born in 2012

    This will be the first time the Region offers a Girls U19 team, and it is the first time the Region is offering a Boys U15 team.

    Tryouts will take place on the following dates:
  • March 1: Girls U15, U17 and U19 at the Alliant Center in Madison prior to the Badger Region Qualifier (6 p.m.)
  • March 15: Boys U15, U17 and U19 at the Baird Center (formerly the Wisconsin Center) in downtown Milwaukee prior to the Badger Region Championships (6 p.m.)
  • March 22: Girls U15, U17 and U19 at the Baird Center (formerly the Wisconsin Center) in downtown Milwaukee prior to the Badger Region Championships (6 p.m.)
  • Video submissions for tryouts will be considered on a case-by-case basis

    Cost of tryouts is $40 and includes a tryout t-shirt. To register for tryouts, click here.

    From the tryouts, 30 athletes in each age group will be brought in for training dates (listed below) with their respective age/gender. An age group consists of athletes born in two years. For example, 30 athletes are chosen in the U19 age group who are born in 2006 and 2007. That doesn’t mean 30 kids from 2006 and 2007. That means 30 kids total.

    Who should attend tryouts? The Badger Region HP All-Star program is for elite athletes who want to be considered for a spot on an international volleyball team representing the state of Wisconsin. All participants must be a current Badger Region member.


Girls training dates

Changes to the traditional training schedule need to happen for the Badger Region HP All-Star program due to the timing of USA Volleyball’s Girls Junior National Championships and the dates for the USA All-Star Championships. Since there are only six days between the last day of GJNCs in Las Vegas and the departure date for the All-Star event in Iowa, the girls program will be modifying its schedule.
The tentative girls training dates are as follows:

  • May 4 or May 5: Training date at site TBA
  • May 11: Training date at site TBA
    The coaching staff will narrow down their group of 30 to the 12 athletes who will be offered spots on the travel team after May 11. The 12 athletes chosen for the team and a handful of alternates will come together July 14-15 for an overnight camp at a site TBA.
    Costs of the training dates and overnight camp will be announced soon.

Boys training dates

Coaches will pick 24-30 athletes per age group and bring them to one-day training sessions as follows:

  • April 21 at the New Berlin SportsPlex
  • May 5 at the New Berlin SportsPlex
  • June date (if needed)
    The athletes chosen for the travel teams will come together July 14-15 at a site TBA for an overnight camp.
    Costs of the training dates and overnight camp will be announced soon.

All-Star Championships

The USA-All-Star Championships will be held July 18-21 in Des Moines, Iowa. The Badger Region delegation will depart the morning of July 17 and return the morning of July 22. Cost of the trip to Iowa is TBD.
