2017 Fall League
This new aspect of Oahe Elite Volleyball Club (OEVB) gives our program the opportunity to introduce volleyball, develop young players and recruit new coaches to our club staff. We will utilize the knowledge and energy of our staff to offer a positive volleyball experience to girls in central South Dakota.
The season will begin at the end of August or first part of September (exact date TBD) and your daughter will have 1 to 2 evening practices or scrimmages (depending on the week) along with two Saturday morning Play Days and one final Saturday morning tournament on October 28th (tentative). Specifics 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. We have extended the season two weeks from last year and are hoping to incorporate game nights in place of some of the practices! Stay tuned!
- 3rd and 4th Grade – Max 48 Registrations
- 5th and 6th grade – Max 56 Registrations
We wholeheartedly welcome girls from all surrounding towns to participate as we are a regional volleyball club. Participants will get at least one group practice per week, instructed by our Oahe Elite Volleyball coaches, and at least two games on each competition day. This year we are extending the season and adding scrimmage nights to get even more game time!
Ages: 3rd-6th grade girls (2017-2018 school year) from Hughes, Lyman, Stanley, Sully and surrounding counties
Teams: will be chosen by our staff. You may request one teammate for your daughter but we cannot guarantee it. We try to make even teams by age group so there is good competition on the weekends. Regardless of teams, age groups will practice together (3rd & 4th together, and 5th & 6th together).
Cost: $95 for registration before June 5th. Your spot is not locked until we receive your season fee.
On June 6th, Late Registration will continue for $100 until July 15th or our capacity of participants is met (whichever comes first). There will be an additional $15 late fee charge for anyone that registers after July 15th, if there are still openings. Last year we reached full capacity, so don’t wait!! Partial scholarships are available.
Benefits: Oahe Volleyball team t-shirt, at least 9 evenings of volleyball to learn basic skills from our elite coaches and Fall League staff, 3 competition days with up to three matches per day, AND (new this year) evening game nights!
Practices: Held at Pierre Indian Learning Center (PILC) on designated days for 45 minutes and will be run like a large clinic. We will split practices by grade like last year, 3rd-4th together at 5:30 p.m., followed by and 5th-6th at 6:15 p.m. Times are tentative right now as we work with PILC staff on a schedule.
New this year: PILC has asked that we DO NOT sit on the bleachers. They must remain condensed so that we have room to play, but it ruins the mechanism when they are sat on this way. Please bring your own chair and respect the facility and any PILC property. This program cannot exist if we loose the privilege to rent this space.
Where do your registration dollars go? Admin costs, equipment, t-shirts, organization fees, liability insurance, facility rental, and elite team fundraising.
Communication: We use weekly emails to communicate with parents during the season. Please remember to check your junk mail OR let us know if you aren’t getting our messages. The answers to 95% of your questions will be in those emails or here on our website.
A calendar will be provided when we have solidified gym space.
😄 Nice Notes about Oahe Volleyball Fall League 😄
“Very positive coaching – geared toward the appropriate age level.”
“Very well organized. Knowledgeable teachers. I was very impressed by the level of skills the girls learned in such a short time.”
“She LOVED it! Enjoyed practicing with all the girls and seeing so much improvement on her team! Great experience!!!”

“The coaches were very impressive in not only their knowledge, but also in keeping everything positive for the players.”
“Nice times on Saturday, didn’t eat up your entire day to do family activities. And I liked the one weekend off if you wanted to travel to see family during the fall season. Well run!!”
“All the coaches were very good. This is a very good program and hope it continues.”
“It was so much fun and so well organized! My whole family came from out of town and they were so impressed by how organized it was and how positive all the coaches were! So thankful for all the work that has been put into this and our kids.”
