Jarrod Luedtke and Austin Cass are the two directors at I AM Volleyball and Marlo Proefrock is our club administrator. We are are addicted to the game and we will talk volleyball all day if you let us! Contact us with any questions you have about our club.
We are dedicated to the growth, development and education of our players and their families. Our vision of “complete player” development charges us with the task of preparing players for the physical, mental and emotional demands that high-level competition places upon athletes.
With our positive reinforcement tactics and an emphasis on setting individual and team goals, I AM Volleyball will foster a sense of competitive togetherness. Our athletes will be put in an environment that can and will allow for personal achievement inside the team dynamic. We place an emphasis on performance coupled with an enjoyment of the sport and personal accomplishment.
We often call our club a family. We are love when we get multiple kids from the same family come through the program and we get to know the parents even more. We understand club is not cheap so we try to lighten the burden by providing family discounts! $50 off per kid that is in the program when you have 2 or more playing the same year.
We believe in bringing in the best talent around when it comes to tryouts but we have learned that when players continue to choose us as their preferred club to play for that we want to keep those players in the program. We give out early offers in August to players trying out for the 15, 16, 17, and 18 teams if they have played for us the past 3 consecutive years.
We try our best to make sure each family has an enjoyable experience at our club. If we have a conflict with a family and our club we have a guideline to follow.
10 out of 10 families enjoyed their experience with I AM in 2020 but if you are not enjoying your time we will refund your money. Review our refund policy to see how it works.
You've got questions, We've got answers!
What is the Badger Region and what membership do I need?
The Badger Region is the governing body that we get insurance through. They cover all of Wisconsin. All regions are under USAV.
Do you have teams for boys?
No. We do not have any all boys teams. Boys are allowed to play on girls teams as long as they play up an age group. That cutoff is at age 12 for boys.
Do you go to the Great Lakes Power League?
No. We do not go to the GLPL. We look for competition in Wisconsin and we will play up an age group or two to find the right competition.
What team should my daughter tryout for?
A great way to determine what team they should tryout for goes as follows:
How many kids on each team?
We aim for 10 players on each team.
What is the cost to play club?
Our costs range from $600 - $1600. Our fees go towards uniforms, practice, tournaments, and coaches.
How many practices a week?
We have one practice during the weekdays and one practice on Sunday afternoon.
How many tournaments do you play in?
For ages 13 and up we range form 14-16 play dates. That usually translates to 8-10 tournaments.
How does playing time work?
Our club provides fair playing time. Which may not mean equal playing time. We keep team rosters to 10-11 players to make sure everyone gets in the match. Younger groups will lean more towards equal playing time during pool play but in playoffs coaches will put their lineup to win.
Do you offer anything else besides club teams?
Yes! We have camps throughout the year. We offer a Development Program for kids 12 and younger. To stay up-to-date on what is going one with I AM subscribe to our news letter and never miss a registration date!
