Town Hall

OVA Town Hall meetings began in June 2020 to provide the Ontario volleyball membership timely updates with the sport and Return to Play as we all navigated the pandemic. They have since branched out to cover specific programming and groups of the community.

OVA Town Halls are held (typically) on Monday's in the evening at least once per month via Zoom.

All Town Halls will be uploaded to the OVA YouTube channel should you not be able to attend the live meeting.
