March’s D3 & D4 Bake-Off Was a Success! + Photo Shoot!

Thanks to the entrants in to the 2015 Gotham Volleyball Division 3 and 4 bake off for their hard work. We had so many delicious entries. As you can see in the video (below), the spread of baked yumminess went on and on, and even more entries came in after this video was shot.

The desserts included cookies to cream puffs to death by chocolate brownies and smores and oh my, so much more!

Special thanks goes out to Max who organized this wonderful (and delicious) event!

Not to be outdone, Royce brought in his professional photo equipment to take snapshots off all of the Division 3 and 4 teams. He even did ‘portraits’ for each individual player. Most of the teams wore the same color, their team t-shirts or coordinated in a cute mixture of colors. I haven’t seen this much ‘fashion’ in these divisions in YEARS! Thanks Royce!

It was truly a warming experience to see Gotham come together with so much pride and community for these special events.

Call for Volunteer Coaches!

We’re calling for volunteer coaches who would be able to take a team in Divisions 5-10 under their wing and lead them to victory! We value our tight-knit Gotham community, and becoming a coach is a great way to get more involved, give-back, and to make new friends.

Please email [email protected] if you are willing and able to coach a team, and indicate what times you would be available on the weekend. Divisions 5, 6, and 9 play on Saturdays from 1:00 – 5:00 PM, and Divisions 7, 8, and 10 play on Saturdays from 5:00 – 9:00 PM (in addition, most teams usually practice before their games as well).

Our coaching coordinator Mark Burleson will try to match up you up with a team in need. If you have any questions, you can email [email protected].

Thank you!
