OP2 aims to grow every athlete through our various levels of club teams.
The largest participation of all our programs is our club volleyball teams. As an affiliate of USA Volleyball, our club teams are formed through tryouts in September/October. Teams practice generally two times per week and play approximately 7-9 tournaments generally from January - May.
Follow us on the web at: www.op2vb.com, Facebook (OP2- Oklahoma Peak Performance Volleyball Club), Instagram (op2vbc), or Twitter (@oklahomapeak). All tryout and club information will be shared on these sites.
A “Club” team is the traditional type of program offered in most volleyball clubs. OP2 operates under the umbrella and governance of USA Volleyball. One goal of most clubs is to qualify teams for the USA J.O. National Championships. Peak has qualified 108 teams for the USA Junior Olympic Volleyball National Championships in 17 years. Peak’s girls’ and boys’ teams range in age from 8-18.
a. Register as a member of USA Volleyball by going to http://okrva.com/registration.shtml. Players
cannot tryout with any club without having a 2021-2022 USA Volleyball membership number. NOTE:
If your child is not selected or decides not to play, you may request a refund of the $55 fee of the USA
Volleyball membership fee by contacting the Oklahoma Region Commissioner at email@example.com.
b. Go to www.op2vb.com and register online for OP2’s tryouts. The cost for Peak’s tryouts is $65.
You will be required to provide your child’s USA membership number as a part of the registration.
c. If your child is offered and accepts a position on a team, you and your child will need to attend
the OP2 Signing Day/ Parent & Player meeting to sign a contract and make the initial payment.
OP2 labels its club teams as “EP (for Endless Pursuit), National, American, and Select” based upon the amount of practice and travel they do. Most of our top 13’s-18’s teams (EP and National) are required to practice 6 hours per week and participate in one or two national qualifiers. National qualifiers are large tournaments attracting teams from all over the country. Typically, a team must win these large tournaments to receive an automatic bid to the USA Junior Olympic National Championships.
OP2 has “American” teams for the 13’s, 14’s, 15’s and 16’s age groups. American teams will be chosen based upon ability just like the EP and National teams. The American teams will practice four hours per week. In addition, the American teams could travel less than the EP and National teams and participate in smaller tournaments.
OP2 designed the Select program for:
a. Players who participated in other sports and therefore did not have the time to practice as much.
b. Players who were new to the sport of volleyball. The Select concept allowed parents to determine their
child’s interest level before pursuing club volleyball.
c. Parents who wanted less travel or a competitive program at a reduced cost.
Select teams will practice less than our EP/National teams and play most tournaments in-state.
Each club holds tryouts to select their teams for the upcoming season. Parents pay a fee
($65 for OP2) for their child to participate in the tryout. At the tryouts, coaches are looking for players to fill a variety of positions and needs. Once their team is selected, the coaches will call the selected players and offer them a position on the team. Due to the number of players trying out, players not selected are typically not notified personally. Those who register online may receive email updates about teams.
team? Typically, 10 players are chosen. Occasionally, based upon a coach’s offensive philosophy, a team may have 9 or 11. NOTE: Many clubs now place 12 on a team.
Never. Players must come to a tryout to be selected for a team. Due to illness, injury, or other unusual circumstances, an alternate tryout date may be offered to a player. Players coming after tryouts may be offered a spot if space is available on a team.
No. The Oklahoma Region Volleyball Association sanctions tryout dates. They attempt to schedule age groups together so players can choose to tryout out for several clubs within a few days time. The Region discourages clubs from pressuring players/parents into commitments before they have had the opportunity to tryout for other clubs in their area. You have the choice to attend other clubs’ tryouts in the area before committing or signing a contract. If you feel you’ve been pressured or have questions or concerns regarding this issue, you may contact the Commissioner of the OKRVA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No. Be sure and ask about the specific items covered in your dues. Some clubs may have extra charges for uniforms or warm-ups, coaches travel expenses, tournament fees, etc. OP2 has included these and many others in the fee structure.
Depending upon the age group, level of the team, and number of practices, our programs range from approximately $1,100 - $3,370 per year. These fees include costs for practice facilities, uniforms, warm-up apparel, practice shirts, coaches’ fees, coaches’ expenses, and tournament entry fees among others. The fees do not include your child’s hotel, travel, and food expenses for traveling to tournaments.
Yes. If two children are playing for Peak, parents receive 10% off the lesser amount on one player’s dues.
No. Some clubs have mandatory fundraising to help cover the bottom line, but OP2 does not. Teams may request permission from the board to do fundraisers for covering expenses to national tournaments.
Most teams, including the boys’ teams, practice two times a week; one during the weekdays and one on the weekends. The 10’s teams practice once a week. Teams could miss a weekend practice once tournaments begin.
Practices are typically held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (only on request of the team), Thursday, Friday, Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons. The team coach and club director will determine the days that practices occur. Practices will begin the middle of November for the 11’s – 14’s and the first part of December for the 15’s – 18’s. All practices (except special occasions) will be held at the Peak Training Facility, 11702 N. I-35 Service Road, OKC, 73131.
Yes. OP2 partners with iCrush Sports Performance to provide players with one hour of strength/conditioning per week for EP, National, and American teams. Select teams and the boys’ teams can participate at an additional cost.
As a part of our vision, OP2 encourages coaches to intentionally teach character principles in practice as well as while on the road at volleyball tournaments. Coaches use John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success Playbook to encourage character development in your child.
Yes. Peak’s experienced coaching staff can help players connect with coaches across the country. Peak players are playing at the NCAA DI, DII, DIII, & NAIA levels as well as playing internationally and on the USA National team.
Yes, but it takes discipline. Many times excellent athletes play multiple sports. We will work with players in dual sports so that they and the team have a positive experience.
One of the most important factors to consider when selecting a club is the coach. Choose carefully the role model who will be mentoring your child throughout the season. The decision to play for a club is a decision best made by a parent and a child, free from pressure by clubs/coaches.
