Hey everyone, it's been a great outdoor season so far but it coming close to the end of outdoor season. Everyone asks me "When does it end ?" ... There is no answer to that. The season goes as long as it is warm enough out to keep playing. Playing on weekdays is likely over since it gets dark too early now.
Weekend events will get posted at the beginning of the week if the weather forecast is good for that weekend.
We will do some football events in the fall and some indoor beach at North Beach in the fall winter and spring. And when the snow finally flies we will head to the hills with the snowboard group - http://www.meetup.com/GTA-Snowboarding-Social-Group/.
We will likely have a season wrap up party (if anyone has a party room that is open late that we can use then let me know).
The first & biggest volleyball group on Meetup Toronto !! And the only volleyball group with public events for all levels. Our group welcomes all levels from beginners to competitive players. The outdoor season is about to start again for another year !! Come back soon for group updates !
Our group welcomes all levels from beginners to competitive players. We have 5 different skill levels to suit everyone ! Recreational 6's Intermediate 5's

We play up to 5 levels and up to 9 nets with the occassional beach BBQ. Leagues too expensive, not "good enough" for other groups ? Want to play Competitive level with lots of other like minded people or want to play just for fun ? Want to play at the beach .. just you and 50-100 friends ? Regardless of your skill level, come out and join us. We have a perfect level for you !! The small fee is used to purchase new equipment and fund future events. Fees are $3-5 per outdoor event or a fixed upfront fee for the season (the fixed option can only be paid going forward, previous fees paid will not be deducted). Equipment purchased to date: Meetup Fees - approx $600 2008 & 2009: over $2,500
2010 - 2 sun canopies, misc repairs and accessory replacements, other - approx $500
2011 - additional sun canopy to replace damaged one, additional nets, lines and new balls, portable BBQ, 1 new - Approx $700
Total investment to date - approx $4,200
We are now capable of setting up 9 full courts without relying on people to bring their own nets which is a hit or miss proposition. We have to start early in the morning to make sure we get enough courts. We can also set up 4 courts on days where the beach courts are taken over by tournaments. Members are welcome to drop by later in the afternoon if they have not signed up and if there is space (others having left early) then you are welcome to join in. We will play Saturdays or Sundays (usually alternating) and occassional weeknights too
Please note - Please read our Group Rules and Guidelines before signing up for any volleyball events - (in Discussion/message board) Please only sign up if you plan on attending. Repeat offenders will be removed from the group. 2 strikes and you are out. Strikes only for team events and events with reservations.
Our events have up to 130 members attend. This means things have to be well organized and members are expected to follow the rules and guidelines or the event will turn into chaos. If you follow our rules and guidelines, you will have a lot of fun meeting new people and having fun in the sun.
Beach rules (for Prog 4's, Advanced and Competitive levels only) - see the discussion boards For indoor beach bookings, any no shows or late bail outs will be immediately removed from the group since we have to pay for court rental and a no show makes everyone else pay more to play. Please do not RSVP unless you intend on coming out.
I have split off and created a new seperate Snowboarding group so those of you who are only interested in Snowboarding can join there for snowboarding specific trips for next season http://www.meetup.com... http://www.meetup.com
