Gotham Elections are around the corner. Elections will be held for each of the Executive Board positions — Commissioner, Vice Commissioner, Treasurer, and Secretary. Anyone is eligible to run for any office, however candidates for Commissioner must have served on the Board within the last two years.
In additional to Executive Board positions, Gotham members will also vote for Captains for the Fall 2014 Season for Divisions 1 – 10.
Lastly, Gotham Members currently in Divisions 1 – 10 will select their Team All-Star.
Nominations for Executive Board positions and Captains can be sent to [email protected] [NOTE email address correction from email blast on 4/14/14] The candidates will receive a confirmation email once the email is received and eligibility has been checked.
Nominations will be accepted starting THIS Saturday from April 19 to May 3 (12 PM)
Elections will run from May 4 to May 9 (6:00 PM)
Positions on the Executive Board require several hours of commitment per week. Terms of Executive Board are one year starting on June 1. Terms for Captains are for the duration of the Fall 2014 season.
Gotham is an all volunteer run organization. You can make a difference.

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.
