What would you say is your level (rec, high rec, intermediate, intermediate+, advanced)? If you're not sure, pls see a detailed description of levels on main page.
I have read, understood, and agreed to the Liability Waiver located in the Files section (under "more"). (IMPORTANT: Please answer “yes” to this question. If you do not answer “yes”, you will not be able to participate in this group’s events.)
How did you hear about us? (word of mouth, through another meetup group, browsing, etc)
Have been playing weekends for close to 15 years (grass though - not beach). Now live in CA - but want to play in TO when I visit.
Welcome to Crazy About Volleyball! CAV (and Stuff)-----
This group is for all levels of players and includes beach volleyball events as well as social events. All volleyball events will be geared to a specific level (see breakdown of levels below). The intention is to have fun, meet new people, and improve your game skills!
All levels are usually welcome, we generally get members who are intermediate or above. Respect and common courtesy are expected, however competitive spirit is always welcome!
We usually play 6's, 5's, 4's, 3's, and sometimes 2's and we follow "beach rules" (eg. 3 hits, no volleying, etc).
In the summer the fees are $3-5 per game, to cover net replacement and additional net purchase costs, unless otherwise specified, and in the off season we play at North Beach where members of our group get to play at a discounted price on saturdays ($12 instead of $16).
LIABILITY WAIVER: Please read the liability waiver located in the "Files" section before attending an event.
CANCELLATION POILCY: Cancelling for an event later than ONE DAY before the event is considered No Show and you will be marked as "1 strike". Once you have two strikes you will be suspended for the season until next summer.
Events will be geared towards a specific level, except MIXED LEVEL events, where all levels are welcome to attend.
