Summer Volleyball League

posted May 8, 2011, 6:02 PM by YIA Sports
Hello everyone,

Want to enjoy the nice, sunny days outdoors after enduring such a long Ottawa winter? Not sure how to keep busy once school is over? In anticipation of the warm summer days to come (soon hopefully), we are officially launching our Summer 2011 Youths In Action (YIA) Beach Volleyball league! YIA is a non-profit organization in Ottawa run by a group of committed volunteers to promote an active lifestyle and to organize social and fun events for all. This summer, the Co-ed 4's Recreational / Intermediate league will be held at Brittania Park (Ottawa-west). Please register as soon as you have a team (details below), along with the team member's names, and payment. If you do not have a team, you can register as an individual and we will try our best to put together a team for you. Due to the limited number of nets and beach space, we can only accommodate 12 teams, so register early to ensure your spot in this league!
