ORVL divisions


  • This is the ideal division for beginner volleyball players, featuring players that lack experience and/or are learning the basic skills of the sport.
  • Players registering for this league should abide by the "fun-first" mentality. Focus is often on getting the ball over the net rather than executing three passes.
  • Players generally do not have specific player positions (i.e. power, setting, middle, etc.).


  • This division is for teams that are looking for more of a challenge than the Recreational level. Most players on the team typically have some experience playing volleyball, although a few players on the team may be new or above average in skill.
  • Typically, three contacts are made before returning the ball over the net to the opponent. Passes are not always accurate, but some blocking will occur.
  • Players may have specific positions.

Spaces are limited. Divisions may be combined depending on the number of registrations.

Officiating and time keeping

A convener and timekeeper will be available to assist in officiating if required.
