NYC Pride 2013
In keeping with Gotham’s commitment to building community, we are excited to announce a day of Friendship Tournaments on March 30 designed to get people meeting and playing volleyball with Gothamites they wouldn’t normally get a chance to.
The day will start with a Mixer Tournament, in which all Gotham divisions are eligible to play together. Two players from different divisions will register as a pair. Each of those pairs will be teamed up with two others to create a unique team of 6 for each round. The organizers will match different skill levels to create a playing field that is as level as possible.
The afternoon will see a Reunion Tournament. We call it that because we anticipate that past teams will want to return and reunite for the tournament, but the primary goal is to check in with old friends who are no longer participating in regular team play. So, if you wish to form a new team with some alumni returning just for the day, that’s great, too, and fits the definition of “reunion”. Either way, registration preference will be given to teams with the largest number of players making a temporary reappearance.
Registration will open soon! If you have any questions, e-mail [email protected]
Join us on Friday, February 21st from 6-9 pm for the Spring 2014 Welcome Social! New members are encouraged stop by to meet others in the Gotham Volleyball League and returners are welcome to help greet them. Our venue, Vlada, will be offering drink specials — $4 Bud Light, $6 house-fused vodka, as well a great menu of delectable food selections. So come make new friends, hang out with fellow Gotham-ites, and get to know your Gotham Volleyball community!
Once you’re selected for your team, remember to pay your dues! Dues are due the first week of play, and the easiest way to pay them is online. Dues for League play are $150 and dues for individual Power classes are $240. You can pay them here:
Please remember that if you bring cash or a check to your first match, there is a $10 fee to pay on site. Also, if you have any questions or issues regarding dues payment, e-mail Gotham Treasurer Pam Tong at [email protected].
We are pleased to announce that we will have a full slate of Friendship Tournaments again in Spring 2014! Friendship Tournaments are a great way to practice with your team, develop new volleyball skills, experiment with more complex systems of play and meet other players from other Gotham divisions and programs.
Our Spring schedule includes tournaments at all skill levels, two Womens’ Tournaments as well as a special tournament TBA. Please click here or go to the “Upcoming Friendship Tournaments” page for the schedule and to register.
Unless otherwise specified on the page, registration opens at 9 PM the Sunday before the tournaments. Weekend tournaments cost $100/team and weekday tournaments cost $90/team.
This spring, registration for Friendship Tournaments will continue to take place through the Gotham website rather than by e-mail. If you would like to register, please go to the Upcoming Friendship Tournaments page, click on the link for the tournament you are interested in and fill out the form.
Registration will open the Sunday before each tournament at 9 PM. The link will be posted before that time, but early registrations will not be accepted.
If you have any questions about Friendship Tournaments, feel free to e-mail us at [email protected]
For league play you can receive an email for when you are playing and when you are referring a match. You can turn it on or off with 1 click. Here’s how:
- Login to your account
- Scroll down to the bottom until you see “My Upcoming Schedule | Notify me”
- Click the box for Notify me
You can also have your calendar added to your Google Calendar. In the section “My Upcoming Schedule” you just need to click on the icon “remind me with Google Calendar”. This will open up a web browser window for you to review and save. I always set the beginning time to earlier so that it will cover practice & warm up time. I then set the reminder time to account for travel time and save!
Gotham Volleyball relies on volunteer coaches to coach our league teams. We are looking for Gotham members from higher divisions interested in coaching our teams this Spring.
If you are interested in coaching a team, please email [email protected]. We will keep a list of people interested in coaching and will pair coaches up with captains/teams who need a coach.
