Gay Ottawa Volleyball
The Gay Ottawa Volleyball (GOV) league is a volunteer, non-profit volleyball league catered mainly to the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, queer, and LGBTQ-friendly within Canada's National Capital Region (NCR). The league provides an inclusive and fun environment, but also serves as a healthy social venue for the LGBTQ community.
The GOV league consists of 2 different nights catered for beginner/intermediate (Monday nights, see 'Recreational' in the main menu) and competitive players (Wednesday nights, see 'Competitive in the main menu).
- Music during warm-up and between sets/matches is permitted at a reasonable level.
- Music during match play is not permitted. The only exception is when both team captains and head referee agree to play music. In that event, music must be played at a reasonable volume in that it does not interfere with players’ ability to play – including players on another court in the same gym – nor interfere with the referee’s ability to officiate the match.
Calling all interested in getting some Recreational Drop-In volleyball this Thanksgiving Monday!
On October 8, we will be holding a special Thanksgiving Monday drop-in session at the Rideau Sports Centre (1 Donald St.)! We will have four volleyball courts available, compared to the two courts we have at our usual location.
With the holiday Monday, Rec Drop-in will be from 4:00 to 6:00pm!
See you on the court!
