Programs:

  • PowerPlay — These weekly, coached, 3 hour sessions are run on Mondays, Saturdays, and Sundays during the Spring and Fall seasons. The fee is $240 per season. Each week, on Sunday afternoons at 1:45 PM, you’ll come to practice before playing your match or ref your match (which will start at 3 or 4 PM).  Here’s the exciting part — your practice will include help with volleyball fundamentals and be coached by our Power Training staff.  After practice, you and your team will play your match, and then go hang out afterward;
  • Open Plays — It offer a casual environment of friendly competition, with game scores but no standings. Our Open Plays have firm eligibility guidelines for each level to help ensure court safety and maintain the level of play. Teams are assigned randomly by the Gotham Leader running the event, with the aim of distributing skill sets as evenly as possible across all teams. Open Play is primarily designed for individual registration and participation. It is not a team-based program;
  • Pre-Tryout Open Plays — This is for players registered to try out for specific Gotham Divisions. These open plays provide opportunities for Captains-elect and aspiring players to meet and greet, to scout and be scouted. To promote and protect the special purpose behind this less-common Open Play format, the players who will be trying out for any of the upcoming season’s Divisions for which the Open Play is designed to be a showcase of skills, will receive priority in our registration process over the Captains themselves. Players are encouraged to wear their tryout numbers during the Open Play, and Captains are encouraged to come scout and take notes;
