    2017 OVR High Performance Girls Tryout Results

    Thank you to all the players who tried out for the OVR Future Select and Select travel teams. We have listed below those players who are being invited back to the final tryout on May 12, 2017. The final tryout will be held at the Columbus Convention Center from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. There is no additional charge for the call-back tryout.

    If your number is listed below, you must accept your spot at the final tryout by Friday, May 5th. You can do that by emailing your name and tryout number to Michelle Hills at hills@ovr.org. When you accept your spot at the final tryout, you are also indicating that you are willing to train and travel to Ft. Lauderdale for the USAV HP Championships in late July. Please do not accept the call back invitation if you are not serious about being considered for the travel team.

    The coaches will be selecting 10-12 players from each age group to represent the OVR at the USAV championships. Players selected must be able to attend the training camp at Bowling Green State University July 14-16th. We will leave from BG on Sunday, July 16th and fly to Ft. Lauderdale from Detroit. We will return to the Detroit Airport on Sunday, July 23rd and players will be reunited with their families at BGSU in the evening of July 23rd. The cost for participation in the training camp and on the travel team is $750.00 per player and will be due by July 10th. The fee includes room and board and training sessions at BGSU; airfare and double room accommodations in Ft. Lauderdale, some meals and a uniform and gear package from Mizuno, USA.

    If your number is not listed below, we would like you to consider participating in the OVR HP developmental camp, which will be held July 7-9, 2016 at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. The camp will be led by Bou Chanthavisouk. Bou is currently coaching at the College of Wooster and was named the Division 2 National Assistant Coach of the year last year while at Gannon University. Current collegiate and club coaches will assist Bou. Space is limited to the 50 campers, as we want to keep the coach to player ratio at 1:5. The cost for this 3 day, 2 night camp is $350.00 and includes all training, room and board and 2 camp shirts. Here is the camp schedule and camp registration form

    Again, many thanks to all of the girls who participated in this year's HP tryout and selection process. Best of luck to all as you complete your club seasons. Feel free to contact either Sandra or myself if you have any questions. Thank you.

    2017 Boys' Tryouts

    We will field a team in the Youth Division and the Select Division. Youth Boys are those born in the years 1999 and 2000. Select Boys are those born in 2001 and 2002 or after. There are no age or grade waivers for HP. The player's birth year is used.

    More information about the age groups

    The boys' tryouts were held at three different locations/dates. The goal was to select 8-10 boys from the tryout for each age division who will be invited to the training camp AND the competition in Florida. If any spots remain available after these tryouts, we may have an additional tryout after the completion of the boys' high school season in June.

    The head coach for the Youth Division will be Kyle Mars. Coach Mars is the head men's volleyball coach at Hiram College. He will be assisted by Nathan Matthews. For the Select Division, Glenn Freed will be the head coach. Coach Freed is the head coach at Ambridge Area High School and Beaver Valley Premier VBC. He will be assisted by Dylan Kembre.
