The camp is set for June 2-4 on the campus of Tulsa University. The girls are in the 15-and-under age group.

The program is organized in conjunction with USAV for the purpose of providing youth and junior players opportunities to participate at a high level of play and be identified by the USA national organization. The Oklahoma Volleyball Association is hosting a summer camp of 24 selected elite volleyball players per age division. From the camp, 12 athletes per age group will be selected to represent the region at the USA Volley Classic HP Tournament July 23-26. Also, one athlete per age group will be selected to participate in the national high performance developmental camp.
