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).
