2018 Fall League

We are not about to wish summer away, but we are starting registration for our 2018 Fall League! Any 3rd – 6th graders looking for a volleyball experience in central South Dakota are welcome to sign up!

This has become a fast favorite for Oahe Elite Volleyball Club (OEVB), giving our program the opportunity to introduce volleyball, develop young players and recruit new coaches to our club staff.  We are going to keep the same season length as last year, but are planning to start in the middle of August to avoid some of the gym conflicts we ran into last year. This program has been edited each year since we started as we try to adapt to the needs of our volleyball families. Two clubs in Sioux Falls have now followed OUR lead: Click here and here to see.

Specifics on the schedule will be circulated during the summer once gym time is solidified.  Your daughter will be placed on a team of 8-9 players for competition days.

Cost: $95 for registration before June 5th. Your spot is not locked until we receive your season fee. You will receive a confirmation email with payment instructions within a day or two.

Click here for more information, rules, and registration.  We have capacity in previous years, so please don’t wait to sign up! If you have more questions, please email oahevolleyball@gmail.com.
