This summer, ORYA is working with ORHS coaches, ORYA volunteers and other sports professionals to provide more summer sports opportunities. Instead of sitting on the couch get your player involved in any of our summer offerings. Offerings below will focus on fun and development while giving players something different to do during the day!

ORYA summer camps will be used as fundraising initiatives. ORYA looks forward to providing fun and developmentally appropriate camp programs that improve our ability to offer quality programming during the regular seasons. Camps will be posted as they are created.


    ORHS Strength and Conditioning coach, Mike Feld, is offering a unique program for athletes of ANY SPORT. Instead of focusing on one sport, Mike’s approach is to develop each individuals speed, quickness, strength and flexibility. Better your body for any type of competition you do. If you’re not planning on playing any sports this is still a great program to develop healthy habits and improve your strength and coordination.
