Getting to the USA Volleyball National Championships isn't easy. While most earn bids through their region, the hardest road is to earn a bid at a national qualifier.
Congrats to 14EP and 16EP who punched their tickets to the National Championships this past weekend. 14EP finished 2nd at the Lone Star Classic in Dallas and 16EP earned their trip to Las Vegas this summer by finishing 3rd at the ShowMe National Qualifier in Kansas City. They are headed to the 11's-17's USAV National Championships in Las Vegas, NV this summer. These teams join 18EP who earned a trip to the 18's National Championships in Columbus Ohio on April 23-25.
In 16 years, Peak has earned the most national qualifier bids (45) and qualified the most teams (over 95) in the Oklahoma Region.
We are proud of Coach Burrough's 14EP team and Coach Ethridge's 16EP team for putting in the effort to #dopeakwork!
Each year, the Oklahoma Region hosts a tournament inviting the top eight teams in each age division, from 11's-17's. The 2021 OKRVA Rankings Tourney saw Peak qualify a state high of 16 teams qualify for this tournament pitting the best teams in the state against each other. 15 Peak teams competed and posted the best club record, with three teams winning their division (11EP, 12EP, 16EP), three more placing 2nd, and two teams placing 3rd. In all, nine teams finished in the top 4 of their age division with 8 teams finishing 3rd or better!
Congrats to the teams below on their finishes:
11's: 11EP - Champions, 11 National - 4th
12's: 12EP - Champions, 12 National - 3rd
13's: 13EP - 2nd, 13 National - 5th

Great job Peak Family! Way to #dopeakwork
In the fall of 2020, Peak launched its "Peak Academy & League" for players in grades 5-6 who have played several years of YMCA ball and wanted to increase their skill and team development with Peak's experienced coaching staff. The program was a success as over 50 players competed on eight teams.
The Peak Academy & League is set to begin on Saturday, January 9. Like last fall, players will help create their own teams and go through a weekly one hour workout with Peak coaches followed by an hour of league play with their team on the same day. However, the program has expanded from four weeks in the fall to eight (8) weeks this winter!
The Peak Academy and League will be held on Saturday mornings from 9:00-11:00am. The dates for the program are January 9, 16, 23, 30, and February 6, 13, 20, & 27. Players will receive a uniform t-shirt to wear during the academy workouts and the league play.
