GOTHAM RETURN TO PLAY UPDATES

After a challenging year both inside and outside our Gotham community that saw us unable to play volleyball, we are now in the process of returning to the volleyball court! This page is designed to give you the latest updates and maximum transparency as the Gotham Volleyball community goes through the process of returning to play outlined in Gotham’s Return to Play plan.` We remain committed to being as transparent about this process as possible! If you have any suggestions regarding this page or how we communicate Return to Play information, please e-mail [email protected]

Current Return to Play Phase and Updates

PHASE 2: INITIAL RESUMPTION OF VOLLEYBALL PROGRAMMING (since May 27, 2021, ending by September, 2021)

Most Recent Update (June 6, 2021):

Space is still available for Gotham’s Fire Island Volleyball Tournament scheduled for July 17, 2021 on the beach at Fire Island Pines. Registration will open Tuesday, June 1, 2021. Please check out the tournament page for more details!

At this time, our indoor facilities are not ready — for various reasons — to have Gotham return to the facilities. Many are working toward having us back in as soon as possible. We are also exploring some outdoor activities for the summer in addition to the Fire Island Tournament. We expect to have more announcements about Phase 2 Volleyball events as facilities are confirmed. If you are interested in volunteering or helping with the process, please e-mail [email protected]

Prior Updates:

On March 18, 2021, Gotham Volleyball held a Return to Play Forum in which Gotham President Eric Eichenholtz outlined the Return to Play process created by the Board of Directors and took questions and suggestions from Gotham members who attended the forum via Zoom and Facebook Live. A video of the Forum is available through Gotham’s Facebook page. Topics discussed included that we will likely be holding our annual Fire Island Tournament on Saturday, July 17, the possibility of other indoor and outdoor events in the Spring, and holding various clinics prior to the next full season. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, you can e-mail [email protected]

On March 22, 2021, Gotham’s Return to Play information page went live on the Gotham Website. The page is designed to promote transparency and to fully inform members and those who want to participate in Gotham’s activities as we return to play.

Gotham elections will be held between May 9 at noon through May 12 at 5 PM. As part of that election, we will be asking questions about COVID-19 and return to play. Please be sure to fill out your election ballot so we can have YOUR feedback!

The Gotham Leadership provided a full Return to Play Update at the May 27, 2021 membership meeting and took questions and answers. Members who missed the meeting have been sent a link to view the video recording of the meeting at their convenience.
