Winter Camp information will be posted soon. For girls interested in attending the 8 weeks of camp starting in January, information on registration will be posted this week. Currently, the tentative times have been posted within the calendar starting January 5th.
Practice schedule has now been posted for entire month of December on each team’s practice page as well as on the calendar. Plus, a picture or two has been posted from teams’ first practice to give everyone an idea of what that page will have.
More information will be discussed with Team Parents directly when they contact Matt Berg.
Stay tuned as the website is updated several times per day or as needed.
Nearly 100 Lakeshore Storm girls from ages 10 to 18 began practice for the 2013-2014 volleyball season and all took part in special ACL training and fitness.
The general consensus amongst coaches is that this is a great beginning for what should prove to be a very good season!
Practices for all teams begin today accompanied by a mandatory parent meeting and ACL Training for all players. See top menu bar and team dropdown menu to follow each respective practice time.
Remember to bring the completed commitment sheet, at least 1/2 of the yearly fee ($145 for 12′s and $175 for 13′s and up), and the signed back page of the handbook. The second installment will be due after the 1st of the new year. Parents ARE able to pay for the entire year, if desired.
Stay in tune with your team!
Parents and players can stay up to date with everything involving their teams by following the “Teams” button above. Regular updates will include roster/team information, practice schedules, tournament schedule and results, and downloaded pictures.
The first two weeks practice schedule has been posted…along with initial mandatory parent meeting and ACL clinic. MAKE SURE YOU BRING YOUR COMPLETED COMMITMENT SHEET WITH YOU ON SUNDAY! How the coaches plan the remainder of the season is in large part based on the commitment sheets gathered from all players.
It’s going to be a great year for volleyball…we are all looking forward to Sunday! See you then.

NOTE TO ALL PLAYERS/PARENTS! A reminder that after you verbally accept a position with Lakeshore Storm VBC, you MUST go back onto the Badger Region website, log into your account, http://badgervolleyball.org/register-with-badger-region-usav/ and declare “Lakeshore Storm VBC” as your club. You will also have to pay the additional $40 for a full membership (assuming you only paid the $10 tryout fee to Badger Region).
Great two days of tryouts!
Roughly 150 girls laced them up in hopes of making the Lakeshore Storm Volleyball Club this weekend! We had incredible effort across the board and we had one of our most competitive tryouts we’ve had in years. Over the next several days, coaches will be giving girls a call if they wish to offer them a position on a Storm Club team.
Players/Parents may follow each respective team page for updated information on who has agreed to join the team and upcoming practice schedules and other team information. We will update the website periodically as we hear from coaches. It should be understood that this process can take several days as girls ponder whether or not to accept a position if offered to them…..however, girls are encouraged to let team coaches know as soon as possible what their intentions are.
Thank you to all the girls who played their hearts out and to all who helped put on a very successful session. Though not every girl can be offered a position, we hope all girls continue to develop their game as many hard decisions had to be made and the margins, in many cases, were quite thin.
Great effort ladies! Stay tuned to team pages (top menu bar) for roster updates of each individual team.

(6/1/13)The Lakeshore Storm Volleyball Club is a member of the Badger Region of USA Volleyball. The club is a non-profit organization that offers the volleyball experience to local athletes ages 8-17. The club has a goal to improve players’ skills and emphasize teamwork, skill development, leadership, and personal growth.
Club Teams (12 and under, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18?)
Teams last year gained valuable experience and had tremendous success!
An annual informational meeting for anyone interested is held in October. (see below) Tryouts for club teams are held in November. Players are picked for each team based on age, ability, potential and attitude as seen at the tryouts. Older teams will attend approximately 5-7 tournaments. The 12 and under team will attend approximately 3 tournaments. The club season lasts from November to March/April. Players are expected to attend each practice and tournament.
We also run a camp to offer the game of volleyball to the beginning and intermediate player. It lasts for 8 weeks beginning in January with practices held on Sundays. Players are divided into groups based on age and ability as follows:
Tots: This is an instructional program for beginning players. It is a wonderful opportunity for players to learn volleyball skills in a fun environment.
Campers: This camp is a great program for players to improve on all basic skills. Players will experience team play as well as master basic skills.
