UPDATE (October 1, 2020) – We are pleased to announce that the new OVA Membership Registration System (MRS) is now live! Please visit https://mrs.ontariovolleyball.org/Account/Login to register as an OVA member. Effectively immediately, the National Registration System (NRS) will no longer be used.
The OVA Membership Registration System (MRS) will replace the existing NRS and will be the primary source for OVA membership, tournament and event registration. The system will provide OVA members with an upgraded interface and improved functionality for an enhanced experience while introducing some new changes. Such changes include:
Please Note: NRS account data will not be transferred over to the new system. Therefore, all membership types (athletes, coaches, referees, etc.) must create a new account in the MRS.
The MRS system uses a member’s email address as their user ID, so each member must have a unique email address to register. If parents have more than one child and would like to have all OVA/MRS emails and correspondence directed to them, their MRS account can be set up with each of their children’s email addresses as the usernames while the parent’s email can be entered as the contact email. Alternatively, Gmail accounts provide the ability to set up a number of unique Gmail email addresses that will all go to one home account by adding “+1” (or “+2” or “+3”, etc.) to the end of the email address. For example, OVAtest@gmail.com will receive all emails using OVAtestfirstname.lastname@example.org or OVAtestemail@example.com, etc. Parents can use these types of Gmail account variations as the user IDs for multiple children in MRS.
The online registration link will be located on the OVA’s Become a Member page along with a comprehensive series of How to Guides to help members navigate the new system.
Questions regarding the MRS have been included in the OVA’s August 17th Town Hall FAQ and additional information can be found in the 2020-21 What’s New document. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact Chery Bennett (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call 416-426-7316.
