Oklahoma Peak Performance began in 2005 with six teams. It has now grown into one of the premier clubs in the state and nation and provides opportunities for over 290 players each year. In addition, we have served over 1,600 players in our developmental camps for ages 8-13.
During its existence, Peak has qualified more teams for the USA Junior National Championships than any volleyball club in the state. OP2 has qualified 54 teams for the national tournament in ten years and has placed 13 players on various All-American teams. In addition Peak has the most automatic qualifiers (25) to the national tournament of any club in the state. Over the last ten years, Peak players and teams have been blessed to experience numerous successes:
A new state record for any club in Oklahoma was reached this year as Peak qualified 10 teams for the USAV National Tournament! In addition, three 2’s (National) teams qualified as well. No club, other than Peak, has ever had a 2’s team qualified, but this year, 13-2 National, 15-2 National, and 17-2 National all punched their ticket to nationals in Indianapolis. At the Oklahoma Regional Championships, OP2 placed 22 of our 26 competing teams in the day 2 gold bracket. We had all-Peak finals at 15’s (15 EP and 15 National) and 17’s (17 EP and 17 National. Peak competed in six of the regional finals and won all six regional championships. The regional champions were: 11 EP, 12 EP, 13 EP, 14 EP, 15 EP, 17 EP. Nationally, Peak had three teams qualify for nationals at national qualifiers: 13 EP (Crossroads), 16 EP (Show Me), and 18 EP (Lone Star).
Also this year, OP2 entered into a partnership with Endless Pursuit for all of our uniform needs.
Peak turned in another record setting year as both 13 Smack and 17 Smack qualified for the open division at nationals and six teams qualified for the USAV National Championships in New Orleans. No Oklahoma club, except Peak, has ever qualified teams for the open division at nationals and OP2 was able to qualify two teams in the highest division. At USAV nationals, 14 Smack claimed a 5th place finish and 15 Smack finished 13th. In addition, 16 Smack put together an impressive run at AAU Nationals that culminated in a national runner-up finish in the 16 Premier division. Based on their 2nd place finish at nationals, OP2 had three players (Kassidy Muse, Alli Evans, and Sarah Maras) named All-Americans.
2014-2015 marked a new era for Peak: the addition of OP2’s first boys’ team.
For the second season in a row, OP2 qualified teams in every age division for the USAV National Championships. 15 Smack and 17 Smack were automatic qualifiers by finishing 2nd at the Show-Me National Qualifier. Then, at the Oklahoma Regional Championships, Peak earned championships in six age divisions: 11 Smack, 12 Smack, 13 Smack, 14 Smack, 16 Smack, and 18 Smack all won titles in their age divisions. Additionally, 17 National placed 2nd. Peak was the first club in Oklahoma history to qualify a team in every age group last season. Their success in the 13-14 season extends that record to two seasons in a row.
At the USAV National Tournament, Peak collectively posted the best team finishes for any Oklahoma club in history. Peak had one team finish 3rd (17 Smack), three 5th place finishes (13 Smack, 15 Smack, 16 Smack), a 13th place (14 Smack), and a 21st place finish (12 Smack).
The 12-13 season proved to be the most successful season for Peak or any club in Oklahoma to date. OP2 qualified 15 Smack at Crossroads National Qualifier and then again in the Open division at the Disney Showcase. In addition, we won every age division (11’s-18’s) at the Oklahoma Regional Championships and qualified a state record 8 teams for the USA national championships. No Oklahoma club had ever won all eight divisions of the regional tournament in one year. For the second time in state history, Peak qualified two teams in the same age group (15 Smack & 15 National) for the national tournament. In addition, Peak had two 11’s teams (11 Smack and 11 Metro – Amanda) in the regional finals as well as two 16’s teams (16 Smack and 16 National) in the finals. One other note: five Peak 14’s teams finished in the top 10.
OP2 qualified six teams for the national tournament and, for the 2nd year in a row, had four automatic qualifiers to the national tournament as 14 Smack won Colorado Crossroads Natl. Qualifier, 15 Smack and 17 Smack won the Show-Me National Qualifier, and 14 Smack qualified for the Open nationals by placing 2nd at Show-Me.
Only four teams have ever qualified for the highest division (Open) at the USA Junior National Championships. All four of those teams have been Peak teams. In 2012, 14 Smack became the youngest team ever in Oklahoma to qualify for the Open division at nationals and they posted the highest Open finish at nationals in Oklahoma history (11th).
In 2011, OP2 qualified an unprecedented, at the time, 7 teams for the USAV J.O. National Championships in Atlanta and had four teams win national qualifiers. These accomplishments are records for the state of Oklahoma. Another record in 2011 is that Peak became the first club in Oklahoma to ever qualify two teams from the same age group for the national tournament as both 15 Smack and 15 National earned bids to Atlanta.

In 2009, four teams qualified for nationals and our 16-1′s team placed 3rd in the nation at the USA Junior National Championships which is the highest finish for any Peak team and 2nd highest finish ever, at the time, for any Oklahoma team in the national division.
