Registration / Meet & Greet at the beginning of the season

On the first Wednesday of every September, we have an opening season get-together, where you can register for the drop-in recreational and/or competitive leagues, and mingle with fellow players.

Skills & Drills Clinic

Skills & Drills is a drop-in session that is focused on (you guessed it) doing drills and developing skills rather than doing regular match play. We often get a coach to come to help give players some pointers. All skill levels are welcome. Details to come for  Skills & Drills for 2017-18!

Weekly Socials

After each night of volleyball, we welcome all players to join us at the Lieutenant’s Pump for food, drinks, socializing and free nachos!  Teams can also pick up their “Pump Bucks” card and start collecting stamps towards food at the end of the season.  10 “bucks” per week (equivalent to $10 in Pump food), and if you come every week in the season your “bucks” double!  That can add up to a lot of food for your team at the end of the year.

The Lieutenant’s Pump is located at 361 Elgin Street, Ottawa, ON.
