Girls High Performance

The Badger Region Girls’ HP All-Star program is an avenue for the Region’s premier players to receive training and competition opportunities from some of the top coaches in Wisconsin. Our program is the regional chapter of the USA Volleyball’s National Team Development Program. As a part of the 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.
