The National Team schedule begins in December and will end with the national tournament in late June. Athletes will have two or three practices each week. While athletes are encouraged to be multi-sport athletes, only immediate conflicts, such as competition for a school sport and a club tournament will be accepted as allowed absences. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Fusào?

Fusào VC was originally started as an high energy alternative to other clubs in the area with its future volleyball players specifically in mind. Today, we continue to pursue excellence and innovation, from the big picture down to the smallest details. Our advantages become your advantages, now and in the future.


Where is Fusào?

Fusào is pleased to call Peace Lutheran School in Sun Prairie, WI our home and will at times make use of Patrick Marsh Middle School in Sun Prairie.


What if I play other sports?

Fusào VC believes that young people should be active and involved at their school, church and home. We encourage our athletes to participate in activities that make them happy. Many high school basketball, softball and soccer coaches tell their athletes not to play club. Fusào VC believes that athletes and their parents are the people who make that decision. Punishing athletes for participating in activities outside of school time is unfair. At Fusào VC athletes will be asked to make as much as they can, even if it means coming late to practice—or going to practice with another team, the important thing is communication, coaches need to know who will and won’t be at practice so they can plan appropriately.


How many people will be on our team?

Fusào VC teams will consist of 10-11 players.


Will everyone on the team play?

Fusào VC believes that club players gain the most from practicing consistently from December to the end of the season. Match competition is also important and all players attending practices on a regular and consistent basis will participate in competition.
