All registration for OVA beach volleyball is done through the National Registration System (NRS).
For assistance registering in the NRS, please refer to our step-by-step How to Register Guides located on our Resources page.
**IMPORTANT NOTE**: If you played indoor club volleyball this year, you do not have to pay the OVA membership fee again. To add the Beach Player role, login to your NRS and click "Upgrade Membership" located under Quick Links on the left-side of the page. Select Beach Player to upgrade your membership at no cost. If NRS prompts you to pay the membership fee, it is likely because you have more than one account in NRS. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out which account has already been paid for during the indoor season. Follow this procedure before registering for tournaments.
OVA Tournament Fee:
- $90.00 + HST per team per event in the Youth and Adult divisions.
- Satellite fees, Provincial and National Championships fees may be adjusted.
To be eligible to participate in Ontario Beach Championships, each partner must participate in a minimum of 3 events in the age category they wish to participate in at Ontario Championships (at least two must be an OVA Beach Tour event).
1. Indoor Provincial Team – must play in at least 1 OVA Beach Tour event.
2. National Team athletes – must play in at least 1 OVA Beach Tour event.
3. Girls 12U & Boys 13U – must compete in 2 events (minimum 1 OVA Beach Tour event & 1 satellite event).
4. Region 1 athletes – there are NO provincial eligibility requirements.
5. Exceptional circumstances – Must present case to OVA Beach Ad Hoc Committee by Monday July 18, 2016.
(NOTE: a medical note does not count as participation in an event. A medical note can be used to get a refund for the entry fee or a partner substitution).
Registering for Elite:
Teams who wish to take part in the Elite divisions should register in the Elite Qualifier. If the teams who registered in the Elite Qualifier have enough points for the Elite main draw, they will not be required to play in the qualifier and be seeded accordingly. All registrants in the Elite/AA-A5 divisions will be seeded according to points in divisions AA-A5 (FYI – this may seed you in an unexpected division, if you would like to play Elite, register in the Elite Qualifier). The OVA website will indicate if there is a qualifier or not prior to the tournament.
Please review our Refund Policy prior to registration.
