Skills & Drills Clinic

Skills & Drills is a drop-in session usually held on the first Monday of each month. The cost for the drop-in is $5.00 for the evening, which includes the clinic. We have a fantastic coach who runs the evening and will help players improve on all their skills.  It is highly recommended to help you improve your game. All skill levels are welcome.

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.


Gay Ottawa Volleyball hosts a number of fundraisers throughout the year. This includes Euchre Tournaments, Bottle Drives, Trivia nights, and more.
