Join the Buckeyes at our Buckeye Academy Day Camps! We offer two age groups: Scarlet (grades 8 - 12) and Gray (grades 5 - 8). Both groups run concurrently. 8th graders may choose the Scarlet sessions or the Gray sessions based on their competition level. The Scarlet sessions are intended for more competitive players. Get ready to experience three days of fun with Ohio State Women's Volleyball!
