Multi-sport players are expected to attend practices after their school practices, unless excused by their volleyball coach ahead of time. Athletes WILL attend all tournaments on the schedule unless they have excused themselves a minimum of 3 weeks prior due to a conflict with a school SPORT THEY ARE COMPETING IN. National teams will compete in Great Lakes Power League (except 14s and 13s), 4 JVA/USAV multi-day events, the Badger Region Qualifier and a 1 day event.
