Midwest Penguins would like to invite all athletes and adults to join them for a winter fitness bootcamp- just in time for your New Year's resolutions!
Midwest Penguins Volleyball Club has contracted with personal fitness expert, Laure Schwalbe to host it's first ever winter bootcamp. The bootcamp will take place once a week for 12 weeks and begins on Tuesday, Jan. 5.
The class is open to anyone and everyone, children and adults, club or non club individuals; and is designed for all fitness levels.
The class will focus on toning and defining the entire body; core, yoga, barre, and glides to help participants achieve their fitness goals.
Fitness sessions will run approximately 45-50 minutes from 6 to 7 p.m. at Center Court Sports Complex.
Schawlbe is currently a fitness instructor at West Wood Health and Fitness. She is a Pewaukee native and played collegiate volleyball at University Wisconsin- Oshkosh. Schwalbe has been with WestWood Health and Fitness for 18 years, and regularly teaches spin, kickboxing, barre, core and boot camp.
"We're excited to partner with Laure to bring this new fitness opportunity to the community," said Midwest Penguins Club Director, Anne Slattery. "We're looking forward to getting the new year started off on the right, and healthy foot."
Participants are invited to sign up for one, six or all 12 sessions. Pricing and registration information is available on this form.
The Badger Region now allows club volleyball programs to recruit players during the off-season. Some may even offer players without going through the tryout process; creating a stressful and sometimes even more competitive process for athletes.
Midwest Penguins Volleyball Club wants the community to know we remain committed to the open tryout process and select teams by evaluating player talent and skill levels during those tryouts.
“Of course we welcome members of our existing Penguin family to join us, but our teams are not predetermined or recruited,” said Anne Slattery, co-director of the club. “The new process will make for a new and interesting environment, but we do encourage anyone and everyone to tryout for Midwest Penguins.”
According to Slattery, some clubs have even hired recruiting coordinators, who get straight work once the club season is over. Offers can be extended, but are not binding until after the athlete’s high school season is complete. Athletes who have accepted any offer must officially accept the offer on the Webpoint website.
If the athlete has not officially accepted the offer on Webpoint it is not official, and athletes are free to attend tryouts at any club.
“Midwest Penguins is a competitive club,” Slattery said. “We build on our team talent with an excellent and experienced coaching staff, and we strive to earn bids to national events at every level. We plan to continue to make the tryout process an important part of our season, and we encourage all athletes; whether being recruited or not, to tryout.”
