What G-Force Summer Sand Instructional Volleyball Sessions offer unlike other sand or indoor camps/sessions. 1.) Excellent adult coaching vs. being taught by high school (helpers) players. 2.) 9 weeks (NOT 5 to 7 week programs with less time or hours by other groups and a much higher the $costs$), twice a week for 4 plus hours vs. 3 to 5 day camp which might costs a lot more money and give a lot less hours to improve upon your volleyball skills. 3.) A volleyball & t-shirt given to every player, along with evaluations & many volleyball handouts. 4.) 8 - 10 players (maximum) per 1 adult coach. 5.)  Players are allowed to make-up missed session(s) at any location/time/day for NO EXTRA FEE!  6.) No more than 14 to 16 players on a court and no players on the sidelines waiting to use the court! 7.) Many more touches on a volleyball at 36 plus hours of court-time vs. a few days of a summer camp or a 5 to 7 week program. 8.) 1 on 1 coaching at times, when needed. 9.) Private lessons available from any Site Director Coach. Please just ask them. 10.) Great value and service for your money. Try it...you'll like it!

ALL ABOUT SUMMER SAND: Come learn the secrets about why G-Force VBC is one of the top volleyball clubs in the State of Wisconsin. Our coaching staff will share their knowledge about how to become a much better volleyball player!  Every participant will receive a new volleyball, t-shirt, two or three volleyball evaluations, many valuable volleyball handouts along with excellent coaching for a VERY affordable price.  Again this year, we will be having an "Elite" session for each group along with adding another morning session starting at 8:15a. Note: The "Elite" group can be of any age.  It is a player who displays a high level of volleyball control and wants to work hard while attending her/his session

The G-Force Summer Sand is geared for continuous improvement by each athlete throughout the summer.  This includes an excellent coaching staff, many valuable handouts, two or three volleyball evaluations and of course having lots of fun.  Unlike other volleyball camps/programs where fun is the main objective (while learning may not be), we believe learning and improving upon all skills of volleyball is our goal. While we enjoy having fun, our emphasis is about improving upon all the aspects of volleyball and this is where our Summer Sand Program SHINES. The maximum number of players on a court will be 14 to 16.  We do not have other players waiting on the sidelines to use the volleyball court. Our coaching staff is very experienced, having coached high school or middle school and club volleyball, played volleyball at a very high level and many coaches are certified by the Badger Region. Our Head coaches will be able to improve upon every athlete's playing ability.  Our helper coaches will assist the Head Coach and they bring a high level of playing experience and enthusiasm to every one of our Summer Sand players.    

COACHES: Our certified Badger Region Head coaching staff will be: Trygve S.,  Jenny C., Heather T., Gillian C., Amy P., Kim F., James C., Nikki, and Tim Janzen.  More coaches will be added.  Over 100 years of coaching experience at all levels!    
 Summer Camps

Sessions 1 - 24 are basic skill volleyball clinics where players will be working on proper volleyball skills and new techniques. We intend to run our sessions at medium to high intensity. Our 9-week program will allow the players to get many touches on the volleyball then an average 3, 4 or 5 day volleyball camp would provide while doing this 4 plus hours per week over the summer months also other 7 week volleyball programs who charge much more $$$ and do far less than us!  We also will be playing games/matches. Two to three volleyball evaluations will also be given. The fee is $275.00 per session. Cash & team discounts are available. The breakdown of price per hour is around $7.75 (per hour).  This is about what you would pay a babysitter per hour? A t-shirt is provided along with a brand new outdoor volleyball (retail price around $30.00) that must be used during these sessions. For more information please call any site director above or call 262.391.3335.  Thanks!  G-Force works for you!!! 

 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q.) I noticed this season you require a summer sand player to also join and be a member of the USAV Badger Region which costs $15.  This is done on Webpoint .  Any current Badger Region 2013 - 14 member is not required to do this because their current membership is still good.  You also require us to send a copy of the exsisting or new membership card to G-Force VBC prior to the first session/practice starts.  Why is this USAV/Badger Region membership being required?

A.) This has been done for insurance purposes.   

Q.) If I register my daughter or son in the elite group what does this mean?

A.) This is for the player who already has excellent volleyball control skills and would like to continue to improve upon those skills with other players who also have similar abilities.  But our coaching staff will divide up the players upon their own skill levels and players could be moved up or down a court during the season if the coaching staff feels this would benefit their group.  Just because a parent feels that their child should be signed-up as an elite player (perhaps the player does not want this) does not always mean they will be in this group.  Our coaching staff strives to teach and instruct all of our players the best as they can.  If any player feels that THEY would like to be challenged more they should request this from their head summer sand court coach.        

Q.)  I play on another volleyball club and some of my friend don't play club volleyball.  Is it also okay if my teammates and I register for this 9 week summer sand program?  

A.)  For Sure!!!  We accept non-club players who want to improve upon their current volleyball skills.  We hire coaches from other volleyball clubs to be on our summer sand coaching staff.  We have had many players from different volleyball clubs attend our summer sand program because they want to improve upon their current volleyball skills.  They love our coaching staff and what is being taught as well as meeting new friends or maintaining the frienships they have made during their club, youth volleyball program, grade school, middle school or high school season.          

Q.) Is attending a three - five day volleyball camp and spending a couple of hundred dollars ($250 - $500) worth it over the summer months?

A.) It all depends upon who is running it. What is the ratio of players to a certified coach? Is this all the volleyball player will attend during the summer leading up to the high school tryouts or club tryouts? Is this being taught by players who have never coached before?  Our 9 week program offers many touches on the volleyball with a great coaching staff.  Some other programs only run 7 weeks and charge well over $300.00 or more as well as others who only run 4 days for a total of ten hours and charge $100 per player and you only receive verbal instructions and nothing else compared to what the G-Force Summer Sand Sessions offer you.  We give everyone a GREAT VALUE & SERVICE for you what you have to pay. Our price stayed the same this year.     

Q.) Would attending a one week volleyball camp be more advantageous than attending a bi-weekly summer camp over a nine week period consisting of about 36 hours for around $7.75 per hour. 

A). Do real athletes just train one week out of the entire summer or do they train on a weekly basics? The athletes that train properly will be ready for whatever challenges they may face.  The more you practice and being taught by excellent coaches will enable you to continue to improve upon your current volleyball skills.  Hopefully this will result in making the team, and/or club team you wish to play on as well as getting more playing time.    

Q.) Why practice in the sand vs. always playing indoor volleyball?

A.)  According to the volleyball experts (Karch Kiraly) playing in the sand with all the elements; sun, heat, uneven playing surface and mother nature will make you a much stronger and faster volleyball player when you play indoors' again.  You can always take the outdoor volleyball player and put them indoors with-out missing a beat but try putting an indoor volleyball outside in the sand with the wind blowing and they can't adjust as fast.  Why do you think college programs are starting to endorse doubles volleyball and giving college scholarships for this sport?  So please don't believe other indoor programs which preach staying indoors to practice volleyball just because you play your matches there will improve upon your game vs. practicing outdoors.  What they don't want you to know or understand is the full benefits your body and mind will achieve when playing out in the sand, in addition, playing in the sand is much eaiser on your body (joints) than playing indoors.  Less pounding & strain on your joints!  Ask the greatest male volleyball player of all-time (Karch Kiraly) who strongly suggest every volleyball player to practice in the sand to make them both mentally and physically stronger for when they return to the indoors.  You want to disagree with the best outdoor player to have ever played beach sand doubles volleyball and one of the best to ever have played indoor volleyball with all of his Olympic GOLD medals?  I don't!!!            

Q.) We have spent hundreds of dollars on a week camp which was not nearly as long as the 36 hours G-Force offers  and attended another camp because we were not happy with the first one so why do you think the G-Force Summer VB Camps will benefit us more?

A). Is it better to touch a volleyball for a couple of days during a summer camp where coaches (player coaches that have never really coached volleyball before but are allowed to give instructions to participants) give instructions only for the participants to later forget most of this information vs. attending a 9 week session, two days a week for 4 plus hours (36 hours total) and given proper instructions by certified coaches who have coached college volleyball, high school, or in other words at all levels along with up to TWO orTHREE volleyball evaluations, a T-SHIRT,  NEW VOLLEYBALL and many valuable volleyball handouts for each participant?  These summer sand sessions brings you great value and service for what you have to pay comparied to a three or four day volleyball camp or 6 to 7 week other volleyball programs.  Also if you happen to miss your session(s) you can make it up at any location or other day or time with no addtional costs.  Other programs will not allow you too do this.  You just show-up to make-up your missed time due to your vacation or being sick, etc.. G-Force tries to make this a win-win (great value) situation for everyone who attends.   

 Wisconsin does offer many fine volleyball camps throughout the state!

PLAYERS PLEASE BRING: ***sun glasses, suntan lotion, chapstick, visor or cap, aqua/nike socks or a pair of old socks, chilled water bottles, towel, wear light color clothing, your new volleyball, a smile and a positive work attitude! There will be an outside water hose available.***  

EXCHANGE YOUR VOLLEYBALL:  G-Force volleyball players for Summer Sand you are allowed to exchange your brand new volleyball for either the AVP yellow/white volleyball or the Mikasa VSL300 FIVB Game Ball.  Both retails for about $70.00 each.  Please bring a check or cash for $30.00.  These two volleyballs are what the pros use. They are the best!!! You can also place your order with Alex Uhan/Tim Janzen at Loggers Park or Trygve at Greenfield/Konkel Park @ $40.00 each if you want to purchase one without trading in your other volleyball. 

ANY QUESTIONS?:   Please email Tim Janzen/G-Force at: gforcevb@yahoo.com
