Register for our February 10th “Blind Date” Mixer Tournament

December 16th, 2018

The “Blind Date” Mixer Tournament is back for it’s 3rd run, being held this year on February 10th, which is just 4 days before Valentine’s Day — wink wink!

This tournament has all the fun of a traditional mixer, but with a twist – you’ll meet your tournament partner when you arrive!

Instead of registering as a pair, players register individually for this mixer. Pairs will be matched in advance by the tournament coordinators, and partners will meet when they arrive at the tournament. Each pair will join with two other “blind date” pairs to create a unique team of 6 for each round of the tournament. Following that match, the pairs will then play with different teammates each match!

We are also excited to welcome a special guest speaker who will share a few words about heart health, and we’ll have games and giveaways courtesy of 5=10 Underwear!

February 10th, 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM @ the Rustin Gyms
The Blind Date Mixer has sold out. Please send an e-mail to [email protected] if you would like to be added to the wait-list.

Call for Volunteer Coaches

December 15th, 2018

Gotham members volunteering to coach teams in lower divisions is one of the things that helps make Gotham Volleyball great.  Most teams that play on Saturdays, and some weekday teams, have a volunteer coach working with the team.  Our volunteer coaches not only add a layer of skill development and a crucial pair of eyes that a captain needs, but also an important element of moral support.  Coaches push a player to try harder and, when the player tries and fails, offer encouragement and support.  Coaches are volunteers in Gotham, and the level of involvement with the team depends a lot on the preferences of the team captain.

Once a coach is paired with a captain, the details of the role could be helping to create a line-up, devising and implementing pre-game drills and warm-ups, in-game coaching (calling time-outs and giving feedback to players), and possibly post-game encouragement.  A coach should help players identify the skills needing focus and development.  A coach should also be able to monitor team dynamics (before, during and, possibly even, after play) and take action to remedy situations that occur during a match.  In many respects, the captain is the leader of the team; however, a good coach makes it possible for a captain to succeed.

If you are interested in volunteering as a coach this Fall, please fill out the form using the link above.  For those interested in coaching, we will make every effort to pair you with a team at the level of your interest.  If you have any questions, e-mail [email protected].
