Drop-in

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!

Important note for the Drop-in format 

We are returning to the traditional (pre-pandemic) format of Monday nights, which is to emphasize socializing and peer-supported entry-level skills development for anyone seeking to work on their game. 

  • As always, all skill levels are welcome, although we will no longer be dividing the courts into Fun and Fierce groups. This division of courts was a temporary response to the pandemic to accommodate  more advanced players, when the Wednesday League (which has now returned) was canceled. 
  • The Site Coordinator and volunteers will help to explain the basic rules of play at the beginning of the night, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask someone. Everyone is there for fun, so enjoy yourselves!

***Are you a player who is working on their game, seeking something more advanced than Mondays but not able to participate at your desired level on Wednesdays? 

  • Consider signing up for the Friday Skills & Drills Series! We are also aiming to get this started in February, where you can sign up for a series of sessions with a qualified coach taking place every Friday. Send an email to info@govleague.ca if you’re interested!
