Drop-in Mondays – Come Out and Play!

Gay Ottawa Volleyball (GOV) invites players of all ages and skill levels to come out and play some pick-up volleyball on Monday nights. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to exercise, socialize and have fun at the beginning of the week!

If you are new to volleyball or have not played in a long time, don’t worry, the atmosphere is casual! The focus of the night is more about having fun and getting exciting rallies going, rather than what is on the scoreboard. The Site Coordinator helps explain the basic rules of play at the very beginning of the night, but if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask someone. Everyone is there for fun, so enjoy yourself!

Registration for Fall 2020

Access our player portal to register.

Important notice: In adherence to safety measures and other guidelines to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are following an adapted format for the Fall period. All players must also abide by our COVID-19 protocol.

In order to operate within Ontario’s Phase 3 guidelines as well as be inclusive of many skill levels, we will organize Monday nights into two groups, playing on alternating weeks.

We will continue to maintain Monday’s usual atmosphere of keeping things more social than competitive, and having no set teams.
