Volleyball has been a passion of mine since I started playing in the 5th grade. I played through my school days until I broke my wrist and lost strength in my right hand. I started back up in beach leagues while attending college at UW-Milwaukee for my nursing degree. I played as an adult in various leagues until my kids sports schedules took priority over my own. I missed the court so I turned my focus to coaching, starting 3 years ago with the start up of Germantown Recreation Departments volleyball program and this year as the Germantown 6th grade "A" WYVL Coach.
I've learned through these opportunities that not only do I love to PLAY volleyball, but i love to TEACH volleyball. Besides the fundamentals of the game, I stress the importance of being a good teammate, having a positive attitude, and breaking down barriers with hard work and practice!
I'm super excited to be starting this new journey as a club coach with G-Force!!
Matt Jaworski: I grew up in the Milwaukee area first playing basketball and baseball. I started playing volleyball for the first time when I was a brother in the middle of 2 sisters who were volleyball players. After high school, I went to UW-Whitewater and played for 2 years with the mens club volleyball team. After college, I played in a handful of leagues.
Unlike others that I knew from UWW, I did not get into coaching right away because I went to graduate school and got married, and was blessed with 2 daughters. As my daughters grew, I got involved in coaching. This is my second year with GForce and I coached the JV1 team in Cedar Grove for years.
Outside of volleyball, I am a VP in the Credit Risk Review division of Associated Bank and spend as much time as possible with my wife and 2 daughters, Clare and Allie. One of the primary things I try to do is get players to understand is; focusing on having a great attitude, working as hard as they possibly can, and solidifying good technique. If they get after those 3 principles, winning usually comes along for the ride.
Michelle Rundberg: I have been playing volleyball for many, many years. I have played continuously in adult leagues since graduating from college. I am excited to work with the girls to pass on my enthusiasm for the game, helping them to develop their skills while learning how to work together as a team. My husband Don and I reside in Jackson with our two daughters, Shayla, a seventh grader at Badger Middle School, and Skylar, a fifth grader at Silverbrook Intermediate School.
Playing sports and teaching fitness classes has been a huge part of my life. I played volleyball at Racine Case HS and with Great Lakes Volleyball Club. My first volleyball coaching experience also came with the club after I aged-out of the program. The past several years I have been coaching my two daughters at St. John Lutheran School in Random Lake. I enjoy sharing the passion for the game with my girls and all the girls I've been blessed to work with over the years. I am excited to be a part of the G-Force Volleyball Club Coaching team and strongly believe in the philosophy and direction the club is heading this year.
I'm a graduate of UW-Milwaukee and working professionally as a Community-Based Sign Language Interpreter. I also teach fitness classes with the Kettle Moraine YMCA Ozaukee Branch and Form & Fitness in Grafton. I reside in the Random Lake area with my husband, Marty, and two daughters, Payton & Greta and sons Van & Levi. I look forward to an amazing club season!!
Danielle Weiss: I am from Port Washington. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 2016 where I got my teaching license. I am in my 3rd year of teaching at Sheboygan Falls Elementary, where I am a Special Education teacher for 1st grade students. In my free time I enjoy reading, being outdoors and spending time with my family. I also play on multiple women's volleyball leagues throughout the year.
In high school, I played volleyball for the Pirates and for Ozaukee Wave Volleyball Club. While in high school and part of college I coached grade school volleyball at Our Savior Lutheran in Grafton. I'm excited to once again be coaching! This is my first year with G-Force and I am looking forward to an awesome season with the girls!
Volleyball has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I started playing in middle school, played club volleyball throughout high school, was a part of two high school state championship teams in North Dakota, and went on to play four years at UW-River Falls. I've been coaching since college. I've been a part of middle school and high school programs all over the state. This will be my second year club coaching experience, and I'm so looking forward to working with a 14s team! I am currently the head coach for West Bend West JV. I like my teams to have their basic skills and court movements be second nature by game time so they can focus on just playing in the moment of the game. I also love challenging my kids to hustle and scramble in practice, so they're used to fighting for points come game time.
My degree is in Physical Education with minors in health and coaching. Former teacher, current fitness studio owner of En Fuego Fitness in West Bend where I teach classes, do personal training, and also teach youth conditioning and training. I live in Jackson with my husband Luke and my four girls Rory, Kendra, Riley, and Frankie.
Bert Bertrand: Volleyball is a passion of mine as I have played competitively in the local recreation leagues for 37 years. I also ran the league for 15 years in Grafton. I coached the Varsity and Junior Varsity teams at Grafton High School for four years form 1998-2001. Currently, I am entering my third year as coach for St. Joe's Grafton girls and boys 5th, 6th and 7-8th grade teams. My previous club coaching experience was with Ozaukee Wave Volleyball Club for the last 7 years and I served as a U17, U16, U15 and U12 girls coach.
I am excited to return to G-Force as a member of the coaching staff and look forward to a great 2018-19 season!
Jessica Jacklin: This is my 13th year as a a volleyball coach. I have coached club volleyball for 12 years and this is my 4th year with G-Force. I also am the head coach for the David's Star Evangelical Lutheran School 7/8th grade team, 5/6th grade team and assist the boys 7/8th grade team. Previously I coached with the Cedarburg Comets, with experience at U13-U18 levels for both girls and boys. I played college volleyball for UWSP as a Middle Hitter and continue to learn more about the game.
I enjoy the process of coaching. My passion for helping kids become stronger individuals grows each year as I feel that as much as I may teach them, they teach me in return. I love helping create a learning environment for kids that is not only about skills, but also how to be good team mates, leaders, learning to think outside the box, be more confident and develop a strong work ethic. These are essential things needed to thrive in life as people and as athletes.
Each season brings with it a journey. I look forward to the 2018-19 season.
Becky Weinrich: This year will be my 7th season as a coach for the 6th-8th grade team at Christ Alone/Calvary Lutheran in Mequon as well as my 3rd year coaching with G-Force Volleyball Club. Volleyball has been a part of my entire life and I played competitively through high school and also play locally in leagues and tournaments. I earned my bachelor's degree from St Norbert College and am currently working on my MBA through Arizona State.
Allison Schmidt: My first interest in a team sport was volleyball when I attended middle school in Cedarburg, WI. I played on various school and club teams until graduating in 2010. In college, I played recreationally and have continued to participate in leagues since then. The passion and want to teach others has always been an aspect of my life I have tried to pursue. Coaching is the perfect blend to help teach life skills and lessons, along with encourage the competitiveness and accomplishment that comes with a sport. I graduated from St. Norbert college with a degree in Sociology and currently work as a Case Manager in Waukesha, WI.
I began coaching volleyball in 1971, it's original inception as an interscholastic sport. My first coaching position was with James Madison High School where I served from 1971-1978. During that tenure we won a State Championship in 1977 and were State Runner-Up in 1978. From there I became the Head Coach for Germantown High School in 1980-2013. During that time Germantown achieved 12 Conference Championships.
Bill and I started GForce in 1997 and have coached for the club every year. This year we will be the U15 Select Coaches for GForce.
Germantown did not have a middle school program until 1987. Bill and I helped implement a program and coached thru 2009. Bill also coached the Junior Varsity team for Germantown High School from 1988-2013. We also ran a summer camp program with the recreation department from 1990-2013
I was inducted into the Wisconsin Interscholastic Hall of Fame by my peers in 2013.

I was a multi-sport athlete while attending Carl Sandburg High School in Orland Park, Illinois. As a senior, our volleyball team advanced and won the state championship. This was the first state championship women's team for any sport at Carl Sandburg. I was recruited to play D1 volleyball at Depaul University. I was a four year starter and helped the team advance to the "NCAA Tournament" my Junior year. After college, I continued to play in leagues and also started playing beach volleyball.
I was a club volleyball coach for one year in Chicago prior to moving to Massachusetts. While in MA, I coached one year at the Junior Varsity level at New Bedford High School. After moving back to the Midwest, I found my way back into coaching again and am the current head JV1 coach for West Bend East.
My degree is in Physical Education with minors in Spanish and Coaching. My Master's Degree is in C&I with an ESL endorsement. I taught for ten years in the Chicago Public School system. I now teach for Milwaukee Public Schools. I reside in Cedarburg with my husband Mark, two step-daughters Khendel and Ella and my 6 month old son Lukas.
I look forward to the 2018-19 season with GForce!!
This is my 9th season coaching for G-Force where I have coached teams from 12's through 16's. My passion for coaching comes from being able to teach players that there is no limit to what can be accomplished with effort and a good attitude. My coaching philosophy embraces the fact that the learning process requires players to make mistakes and helping the players through the struggles that go along with learning.
In addition to coaching at G-Force, I coordinated volleyball at St. Boniface in Germantown for 5 years, coached at St. Mary- Menomonee Falls for 2 years, and coached at First Immanuel Lutheran School in Cedarburg for the past 2 seasons.
I have enjoyed the people I have met through volleyball. On any given day of the week between August and May you can probably find me coaching a team or watching players that I coached as they participate for their schools.
I am looking forward to another great season!
