March 20 Update

What an awesome weekend in Sioux Falls! All four Oahe Elite teams played in a championship game to end the day at the Big Sioux Challenge. 14-1s and 12-1s both finished first in their pool and took second in their division gold brackets, and 12-2s took second in the silver bracket. The 14-2s took first place in the bronze bracket to be the only team to end the day on a win! We came home without hardware, but definitely NOT without success and improvement.

Up this weekend are the 16s and 17s(18s) at the Ole Open (an Augustana two-day tournament). Play starts at 11 a.m. on Saturday (not the afternoon like we were originally told) and then 9 a.m. on Sunday. Click here for weekend schedules and more information. Everyone else has the weekend off.

More Reminders/Announcements

14-1s and 12-2s DO NOT have practice on Thursday this week.

14-2s – Due to a conflict with facilities in Mitchell, your April 1 tournament will be in the afternoon (starting at 1 p.m.) instead of the morning. No schedule yet, but they did alert us of this change.

March 13 Update

Congrats on the finishes last weekend for all three teams in competition! 12-2s took 3rd place in Miller’s East River Classic, winning two 3-game matches. The 14-1s and 16s both took first place in Pipestone, Minnesota! Great weekend all!

Up this weekend at the Pentagon big Sioux Challenge are both 14s teams and both 12s teams. Click here for your weekend schedules.

Great job last weekend by both 11s teams and the 14-2s! All of the improvement is so inspiring, and we can’t wait for the rest of the season.

This weekend

Also, next week we have moved all Thursday practices to Tuesday. Same time, same place.  With the exception of the 14-2s who will practice all three days, and some 14-1s! Calendars on your team pages should reflect this change. Congrats Lady Govs Basketball on making it to state!

Click here. These rosters are pending any sicknesses/absences.

Oahe Volleyball Spirit-wear!

Something else new for 2017: Fan apparel is coming to Oahe Volleyball!

We’ve had a lot of requests from families the last couple of years wanting to sport our OEVB teal on the sidelines. So, we’ve created some unique options hoping to have something for everyone.

Final order date will be February 1! We want to see your spirit! 

2017 Teams

Thank you to the families showing interest in Oahe Elite Volleyball and agreeing to spend the season with us. We are excited about where the club is headed and happy to have some new faces as athletes and staff again this year!

The Oahe Elite Volleyball 2017 rosters have been selected. If you did not make a team please know we appreciate your interest and effort. Athletes who have made a roster will be receiving an email from us this afternoon with more details on the season and upcoming events.  Please use the links below to view the rosters by tryout number.

We would love to have a spot and a team for everyone, but our organization doesn’t always have the staff, gym space and team level to accommodate everyone. If you are looking for ways to improve your skills in the off season, we highly recommend summers camps (as many as your schedule allows), and are happy to provide recommendations.

If you have any questions, please email oahevolleyball@gmail.com.


Thanks again, everyone! Looking forward to the season.
