How to Join

Anyone can become a TSVL member.  Membership has it's privileges:

  • Members receive priority status for registration to events
  • Special members-only fees for one-day tournaments and other TSVL activities
  • Member Benefits Program with sponsor partners
  • The right to vote at the Annual & Special General Meetings

Tournaments

Want to play without becoming a member?  Watch for upcoming tournaments. All our tournaments sell out fast so don't miss registration times.

One-day tournaments often welcome non-members to teams still looking for players.

Two-day tournaments are open to everyone!

 

Development

Know nothing about volleyball?  Know a little but you want to get better?  Development is an important cornerstone of TSVL.  The better you know how to play, understand the rules or to lead a team, the more enjoyable your experience will be.  We pride ourselves on the extensive list of development offerings, and encourage our members to take advantage of the mostly subsidized training.

 

Social

Some join TSVL just for the fun of it.  Sure TSVL is about volleyball but there's also the fun, social side.  Some folx came out after joining TSVL.  Some have made life-long friendships or found their partners.  Some just want to party.  It could be one of our season-opening parties; theme nights; tournament or after-play weekly socials; the summer picnic; or the epic season-ending gala. There's sure to be something offered you'll enjoy.

Competitive Division

Looking to show off your team’s skills on the court? Then competitive is for you! This division caters to high-intermediate and advanced players. Playing on Tuesday nights, teams move up or down the pools depending on the outcome of their games. This ensures that, while the skill level across the Competitive Division is quite varied, games are usually between teams of a similar skill level.

Intermediate Division

So you know volleyball, but you just can't get the hang of your position yet? The intermediate division is a special in-between division that promotes low-level competitive play while providing a space for learning. Playing on Wednesday nights, this is our smallest division which is designed for members to have the chance to really dive into skills development.

Recreational Division

If you're looking for a fun way to get some exercise, meet new people, and socialize then Recreational is your division! A welcoming environment, teams are designed with fun in mind! Each season begins with a Combine Night for new members to get oriented with the sport and for the league coordinators to assess skill levels to balance the teams. The biggest division of the TSVL, Rec is where the party is at!

Tournaments

We LOVE tournaments here at TSVL - and we have a lot of them! From one- and two-day round robins to our marquee Rise and Return of the Spartans. There's a tournament for every level of play! They're a great way to get some practice in for your team, or to have a queer ol'time with friends old and new!

Development

Development is a core pillar of TSVL's long-term plan. We believe that all members of all levels deserve the opportunity to learn, grow, and advance through our divisions. We host a variety of development nights throughout the year, so check out the link below to learn more!

Events & Socials

Enough talk about playing! Ultimately we're a social league. Many long-term friendships and even relationships began in TSVL. We offer weekly socials after play and the season is packed with other events, which go beyond the bar scene, to get people together and have fun.
