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.
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.
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!
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!

Please note: Tournaments like this usually run ahead of schedule, so don’t assume matches last an hour (because they usually don’t). Courts will play on as previous games finish.
11s – please be at the gym and ready to go by 7:30 a.m.(This means arrive before 7:30 so you have time to park, find your court, and get ready). Team rosters for this weekend were announced at practice last night, and have been posted to your team page. Click here. These rosters are pending any sicknesses/absences.
12s – please be at the gym and ready to go by 1:00 p.m. (This means arrive before 1:30 so you have time to park, find your court, and get ready).
We just recieved word from the tournament director of a schedule change for th 12s teams this weekend. 11s will play in the morning as previously planned, but both 12s teams will actually play starting at Noon on Saturday. We will have more details by Wednesday (hopefully sooner) on specific timing. 11s can plan to arrive and be ready to play before 7:30, while the 12s can arrive by 10:45. Your coach will have more details.
Thank you to everyone that has shown interest in more volleyball! We are bringing back our clinic series this year for our elementary school athletes.
If you have some Monday evenings open this spring, we’d love to have you. Details can be found by clicking here. Please sign up in advance of the clinic to ensure your spot. We do not plan to handle any registrations during the time of the clinic. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
