Any 11's/10,, 12's, 13's or 14's players still looking to play club volleyball, please contact our Head Coaches: 11/10's Jeff Warden 414.491.8886, 12's Tim Janzen 262.391.3335. 

15's & older tryouts will begin the weekend of Nov. 15 THANK YOU for your interest in joining G-Force VBC! *** New tryout times posted WAY below.  Please check back to see if and when more tryout times will be added or changes that my take place.***     

Dates/Times: Please try to attend as many Tryout dates as you can. If you will be missing more than two of the first three tryouts dates/times please email or call the head coach listed under Coaches/Teams G-Force webpage or tell them in person at tryouts. Unlike some other clubs we don't need to keep tryout players here for hours on end. Our excellent coaching can evaluate & make proper assessments of our tryout players in two hours or less. We don't make tryout players come back at a later time or group them as a "TOP" players in the gym. If most clubs did tryouts of over two hours when would their be time to tryout for three or four clubs? I guess they didn't think about that! G-Force has!       

Tryout Fee: $40  One time fee for all tryout dates or different age groups (if "trying up"). We offer more than one try-out date.

DEAR PLAYERS & PARENTS: If you are receiving ongoing & unwanted communication (texts, voicemails, phone calls, emails, facebook messages, etc...) from any club, club director, and/or coach, please contact them informing him/her to no longer contact you and your child in any manner concerning their club. If they disregard your directive yet continue to contact/hassle you, then please alert the Badger Region Office at 414.507.1124. Once you tell them to stop all communications, they need to stop contacting you and your child. Any questions, please email me at gforcevb@yahoo.com and/or contact the Badger Region at 414.507.1124 and speak to Jen. Thanks!

At no time can a club coach or club director make you commit to your offer prior to any committment dates.  If you are being pressured to make a decision about your offer, please contact the Badger Region @ 414.507.1124 and also contact Tim Janzen at 1.262.391.3335.  A club may only make one contact to any player per team they have made an offer to for each team during each commitment date.

Note: Some coaches from other clubs might beat around the bush and make offers by saying this, "If I were to make you an offer today to play for me would you accept my offer?". The first thing I would say to this coach is are you making me an offer? If he or or she stated "yes", then I would thank them and tell them I would think about it. Offers like this (open end offers) should not be presented in this manner. This is NOT an offer. Another club might make offers by asking you if you just try out for their club they will make you an offer to play for them. This should not take place and is not an offer.  If any of this takes place contact the Badger Region office (414.507.1124) and Tim Janzen (262.391.3335).

Notes: As always, players are encouraged to let clubs know of your intentions as soon as the decision has been made a player does NOT need to wait until the deadline to accept or decline their offer.  G-Force would truly appreciate the offers that we give out to the players would accept them.
