Air Assault is a branch of Wisconsin PoWer VBC. Air Assault was started in Wild Rose in 2011 and moved to Stevens Point last season. Even with the late start we were able to field three teams. All the teams played well and improved a lot.
Air Assault will be overseen by Laine Leitzke, coach at Kewaskum High School, and Tony Larocca, head coach at West De Pere High School. The staff is made up of present and former middle and high school coaches and present and former college players.
Air Assault will practice at Adventure 212 and other area gyms as available. Our teams will play in a variety of tournaments in Wisconsin. The season will last from December to April, with two commitments a week. There will be specialty practices available throughout the season.
The focus of Air Assault is to improve the level of volleyball in Stevens Point and the surrounding area. We will do this with well-organized coaches stressing the importance of fundamental skills while teaching athletes to push themselves to their highest level.
Air Assault will have tryouts in October for 14 & Under as well as November tryouts for all ages 16 & Under. Practices begin in January and the last tournament is in late March or early April.
