Southern Ohio Volleyball Club
Ellie Harper (SOVC - Weasels - 12) Selected for "Future Select Camp"
The Ohio Valley Region added a new level to their High Performance program this summer. They are hosting the first "Future Select" Camp as part of their HP Training Camp. The Future Select group is the OVR's up and coming players who were born on or after January 1, 2004. The Camp will be held at Bowling Green State University, July 8-10. A total of 32 players were selected to participate. This camp is intended to give the players a feel for the High Performance program and an opporunity to get intensive training over a 3 day period with some of the best collegiate and club coaches in the region. The OVR hopes this experience will give the participatns a leg up when it comes time to tryout for OVR HP Travel teams or the USAV HP programs down the road. Congratulations Ellie! She's a WEASEL!
