The Gay Ottawa Volleyball (GOV) league hosts a number of events throughout the year. This includes Skills & Drills and Referee Clinics; weekly socials; fundraisers such as euchre tournaments, bottle drives and trivia nights; as well as an annual Christmas Party and annual tournament.

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 Clinics

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. Skills & Drills Clinics will be held on the following dates for 2018-19 season:

  • Sunday September 30, 2018
  • Sunday October 28, 2018
  • Sunday November 25, 2018
  • Sunday December 9, 2018
  • Sunday January 27, 2019
  • Sunday February 17, 2019
  • Sunday March 24, 2019
  • Sunday April 28, 2019

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.


We host and support a number of fundraisers throughout the year. This includes Euchre Tournaments, Bottle Drives, Trivia nights, and more.

Annual Holiday Party

Each year we host a holiday party which is free for members and $5.00 for guests.  There is always lots of food and snacks for everyone.
