IMPORTANT NEWS & UPDATES
Basic Info on OVA
IF YOU ARE NEW TO OVA or club volleyball and looking for information on the club and our programs, please visit the "About OVA" page on the left. We do not run any indoor camps, clinics or coaching during the summer.
Our indoor season will begin again in November when we hold tryouts for all of our teams - Academy and Travel teams all have tryouts. We typically offer teams for girls in 4th - 12th grades at a variety of cost and competition levels. Our top teams in each age group travel to National Qualifiers in Denver and Reno, and play tournaments throughout the Pacific Northwest. Again, please visit the "About OVA" pages for more information. We will hold a parent info meeting in October to go over the teams, costs, schedules for the 2015/2016 club season - the date and time of this Parent Info meeting are tbd; we post updates on the website and in the newspaper as we get closer to the meeting.
REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS What an absolutely FANTASTIC end to an already great season!!! Congratulations to OVA 16 Nationals who took 4th in the region - beating two Platinum teams and making it to the Final Four out of more than 116 teams. Highest finish ever by a 16's team from Central Oregon at Regionals. Congratulations!
Congats to our 18 Nationals who finished 5th, also beating two Platinum teams and doing so with a reduced roster.....how many teams move their libero to OH and can still go top 5? Congrats to 18 Silver who went 5-1 on the weekend and finished in the top 20! A great year by that team. And let's not forget the OVA seniors (Mikayla, Aspen, Molly and Callie). A super bunch of seniors who made us proud.
Congrats to OVA 12 Nationals, taking 3rd in Silver and playing amazing all weekend. Congrats to OVA 16 Silverfor winning their bracket and finishing 33rd in the Region and moving up 36 spots from where they started the year. Congrats to 16 Blue for winning their bracket, moving up 20 spots and everyone improving and having a ton of fun (see picture above). Congrats to OVA 14 Nationals, placing 25th out of more than 130+ teams at Regionals (watch out for these guys next year!). OVA 14 Silver and 14 Bluealso had great weekends and moved up into the top half of Power League - a great accomplishment!!!
Wow.....what a weekend and what a way to finish the year. So proud of all of our athletes, coaches and the entire OVA Ohana! Way to represent. Way to have fun. Way to improve and compete hard. Thank you for making OVA one of the best clubs in the entire Region.We now have players being recruited by colleges from all over the country - including D1 powerhouses such as UCLA, OSU, Utah, VCU, and Montana State, and a large number of smaller colleges across the Pacific NW and beyond. Our players are being recognized for being great volleyball players, great athletes and great students and we are proud of everyone.
Its nice to win one! Congrats to OVA 16 Blue on winning their Power League this past weekend. Way to go ladies! Keep making us proud! And OVA 16 Nationals had a great weekend and is now ranked 3rd in Gold in Power League, with OVA 16 Silver just a couple brackets behind. And congrats to OVA/RR 18 Nationals and OVA 18 Silver - both placing in Gold and Silver respectively.
Colorado Crossroads results: Congratulations to all the teams on their recent successes. OVA 14 Nationals was the first to travel to Colorado Crossroads and played well - finishing in the top half of their division and almost going undefeated on the second day. They used their experience to win their division of Power League and have now moved up two full divisions in the last two Power Leagues. Way to go ladies!
The 18 Nationals, 16 Nationals and 16 Silver survived long delays, snowy airports and slow travel to make it to Denver. 18 Nationals played in one of the toughest pools in tournament history, with the 3 other teams in their pool all being ranked in the top 20 in the country. Lots of colleges around watching the girls play and they had a great tournament. 16 Nationals had a great tournament, going undefeated on the last day and winning the Bronze Division, finishing top 20 overall - a great finish in a very tough division. And 16 Silverhad a great tournament as well, ending up in the top half of their division and nearly winning their bracket. Just as importantly, the girls had a ton of fun, bonded and have some great memories about their trip.
A lot of OVA players got noticed by colleges and made some in-roads on their future at the next level. In fact, one 8th grader (playing on OVA 16 Nationals) even came away being recruited by some D1 schools and said they are ready for her to commit when she is ready, even if that is right now (she's 13) - congrats Jade!
At the Academy level - OVA 12's Bobby continued its recent string of wins and won the last 12's tournament hosted by Rimrock. Way to go ladies!!! All of our teams are back in action this weekend - GO TEAM OVA!
GO TEAM OVA!!!
