Just wanted to send a note saying thanks. Your communication and organization is very much appreciated. It was very nice to get the tournament schedule so early in the season. We are really enjoying this season with Spike.
We love the program, the integrity and family feel. It's a perfect match for our family and for my child.
The coaches' dedication to the team was very impressive. My son's improvement throughout the season was great to see and that was because of great coaching.
Coach Ryan and Coach Tyler were both aces. Wow, I couldn't be more grateful that my player had them as teachers, role models and guides during the season.
Could not have been happier - wonderful attitude, played all kids, stayed positive but also corrected and redirected when needed. Terrific communication! Very lucky to have played for Mitch.
Both Jenna and Eric were very dedicated and were even willing to stay after practice to do additional coaching with my son.
We love Brandon & Ken. Kind men that really cared about the boys and helped them improve.
He was great! Kind, organized, knowledgeable, friendly - just perfect. I wish we would have had him last year.
Pam is awesome, she really cares about the kids and making them better!
Fantastic coaches! I've learned a lot from them.
Both very competent, personable and set a great example for the kids.
We loved our coaches! Coach Jenna and Eric were amazing, helped our son grow, had fun at the same time. It was a great first experience for him.
Spike Milwaukee has been a great experience for my son to learn and develop his volleyball and team building skills. I know he has grown over the last 7 years and continue to be friends with the teammates he has played with for many years. I personally want to thank all of the Lahmann family and Brandon Nelsen for their dedication to coaching over the last 7 years. I have enjoyed talking volleyball with all of them every time we see each other. Good luck to Spike Milwaukee in the future. I will be watching to see how you are doing.
The team was such a great group of boys and coaches. I’m disappointed that the season was cut short.
Loved both of our coaches!! The very best coaches!!
It was fun to watch the improvement from the first tournament game to their last. Really shows something about the coaches ability to pull them together.
Extremely happy with the job both Ryan and Ken did this year. Can not say enough good things about their coaching abilities and professionalism.
Always positive and upbeat, while always working to improve.
Jenna curated and cultivated a truly great group of kids who thoroughly enjoyed playing together throughout the season.
Your club seems to pick good kids and those kids helped my son through a rough spot this year. Many didn’t know him but the kids and their parents supported him so much!
Great job overall in all ways! My son learned a lot about a variety of positions and enjoyed being on the team. Coach Brandon kept his cool during games and tournaments, and we saw some who didn't. We were all very proud of our coach!
My son loved the coaches! I thought they were great for his age.
My son received great coaching, lots of touches, and had a great time, so he definitely improved. Additionally, his excellent experience with Spike has made him want to continue to work at improving his skills so he can continue to play at this level.
Huge gains from beginning to end of the year on my son's team. Coaches were focuses on player development, not just winning, which was great.
Pam is awesome!!!! Thank you so much for your level of commitment! You really go above and beyond!!!
Pam is great and really has a great pulse on the kids. She gets it.
Coach Pam is amazing, her level of commitment to the boys is unmatched. Her high energy approach to coaching is inspiring. We are blessed to have had the opportunity to have her as a Coach.
Even keeled; positive attitude; liked the kids.
Another reason my son decided to play one more club season were these two great guys. My son loves them as coaches as well as being great men!
We appreciate the club and the positive image it continues to represent.
Our first season playing club and Spike has exceeded our expectations. Wished we would have done it years earlier!
Best club out there. Hope to be a part of it next season
Great season! Sorry to see it cut short but we understand. We had the best coaches and our son had so much fun and really improved his game and his confidence!
Excellent communications and very clear directions all year. We felt like we were kept informed on all aspects. Couldn't be happier with Spike Milwaukee.
Jeff- you made it so easy for us and you were just so supportive of us all.
Communication was never lacking. We never wondered when to be somewhere or how to get information. Facilities used are great.
What a scary and unpredictable virus this is. Yes, what a bummer our season is ending this way. I want to thank you for your kindness, and commitment to these guys and us as parents. You are a fabulous coach. [My son] has really loved his time working and playing under your guidance.
I just want to say again what a terrific experience this volleyball season has been. Jimmy and Jack, you guys seem to have struck the perfect balance between making this a ton of fun for the boys while still holding them accountable and pushing them to improve. Believe me, all the parents notice that the two of you take every opportunity to coach our boys and do so in positive and constructive manner. We know our son seems pretty salty in the moment, but he was fine and talking about how fun this season has been within 30 minutes of our ride home. My wife and I appreciate you working with him to focus on the next hit, not the last one.
Thanks again for making our first boys club volleyball experience so great.
My wife and I were really happy with what we saw at the first tournament. Not only was the talent apparent, but the team vibe was consistently positive and encouraging. Jimmy and Jack did a great job of setting that tone and also took every opportunity to provide the boys constructive feedback. Great start and we look forward to seeing this team perform once the have even more experience playing together.
All the best,
My son has had trouble on "win-at-all-costs" teams -- not because he is not athletic, but because it is too much stress and mental pressure. I am so glad Spike placed the emphasis on learning, and that the emphasis on learning led to a great win at Badger Region!
The vball team did well and worked hard this year. They were competitive in all tournaments and had intensity. However our favorite part of the year was watching them all truly have fun. Both when things went well or poorly there were moments of joy and humor and between matches the kids always had fun inventing new games and hanging out. My son has been in many competitive sports for many years and several of those sports have ceased to be fun and seem to have become work. It has been a while since we've seen as many smiles during sports as we saw this vball season.
Coach Ryan was amazing. He was so positive and encouraging. He was so great with the kids, I thought HE was the middle school teacher!
I truly believed he had the players' best interests at heart. Really wanted to help them grow and gain confidence. I think they boys all had a lot of respect for Brandon.
Brandon helped our son with confidence that he didn't have at the start of the season. During try-outs, he didn't even know what position he should list. Other (parent) coaches would overlook him due to his size. Brandon gave him an opportunity and the encouragement to play an important role on the team (middle hitter and team captain). I've coached my son for years in baseball and this is the best experience for my wife and I to watch someone coach our son without any bias. Unfortunately, this experience may have pushed volleyball in front of baseball as his favorite sport, and we couldn't be happier. Honestly, great experience! We were sad for the season to end.
Pam was the best. How lucky Ben was to have her.
Jerry is a great coach - there were no surprises and he held the boys to high standards but never got down on them if a match or two fell apart.
Great communication and very organized~ so appreciated!
I overall am very happy that my sons play for Spike and hope we return on both levels next year - thank you for letting us give feedback - great experience.
Jenna and all the coaches (Brandon -Jordan who filled in) were all great with the kids - very knowledgeable and super patient yet pushed them to be better and learn - hope we get the chance to remain on Spike.
