When does the registration open for each session?
Registration for Spring, Summer and Fall sessions opens on March 1st annually. There is a two week early bird registration window from March 1st-15th, were you can save $50 for all 4’s and 6’s teams!
Please note that 95% of the summer leagues sell out well before the registration deadline of June 27th, so please register early to avoid disappointment.
What time are the leagues played at?
Spring and Summer Session games start at 6:45pm and run roughly to 8:30pm. Every team plays 3 timed matches nightly. Schedules are posted on-site at Ashbridges every night, they never appear on the website due to every team playing at the exact same time every single week and with cancellation, we make changes last minute to ensure 3 games nightly for all teams.
Fall Session games start at 6pm and they end around 7:15pm, or as long as we get sunlight for. Every team plays 2 timed matches and then are encouraged to play for fun until the sun goes down.
How do I find out if the games are cancelled due to bad weather?
As beach volleyball is an outdoor sport, we have to let you know that ALL OF OUR BEACH LEAGUES WILL RUN RAIN OR SHINE. Only in EXTREME and unpredicted weather circumstances will we not run our leagues. Cancellations will occur on-site (e.g. lightning).
On extreme weather days, please feel free to call our weather hotline at (416) 426-7300, the line will be updated at 5pm only if play is cancelled. If you do not hear a game cancellation message, kindly proceed to the beach. Please do not leave a message asking to be called back about play for that night. Your cooperation is appreciated.
What will the league be like - just for the elite players or for every skill level?
Our goal is to operate well organized leagues that are inclusive and offer everyone an opportunity to play regardless of skill level. Whether you are beginner, recreational, intermediate, advanced or an elite player, we will have a place for you to play and enjoy beach volleyball at Ashbridges Bay.
We structure the leagues in a manner that ensures your team is playing in the appropriate division, and that your matches are competitive and fun. Our objective is to ensure that everyone has fun and enjoys the experience, both on and off the court!
Do I have to become a member of the OVA in order to play in the adult recreational leagues?
Becoming an OVA member is not a requirement to play in the adult recreational leagues. If you want to participate you simply register your team and teammates and you are welcome without any membership prerequisites.
