Many sports clubs don’t last ten years.  But we have something really special here at DA that our athletes, parents and alumni believe in, and we will celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2012!  To comemorate the occasion we are planning to produce really SPECIAL clothing for our 2011-2012 season.

We are looking for a logo and slogan design that reflects our values, our achievements, and the culture of our club in all that we do – competitively, recreationally, and with our emerging programs such as Sitting Volleyball.

In return, you can win a Hundred Bucks cash, some SWAG, and bragging rights for an eternity.

OVA Athlete and Coach Registration – Important!

Posted in 2010-2011, Coaches, Parents, Procedures on October 26, 2010 by DurhamAttack

Oct 26, 2010.  The Club will soon begin registering each of our athletes and coaches in Volleyball Canada’s NRS (National Registration System).  It is VERY important that every player (parent) and coach understand these instructions so that we don’t have a mess to clean up afterwards.

NEW Players and Coaches

When we register you, an email message will be sent to the email address you provided on the OVA Registration Form.  You MUST click the link in this message to access the NRS, and follow the instructions to complete the registration. 

You will be asked to pick a username and password.  Make sure you write this down so that you can access your account later this season and next.

For region select: Region 4.

If you are asked to pick a role or pay a registration fee then DO NOT PROCEED.  This has already been done by the Club.  Contact the OVA (see Help below).

For complete instructions >>> click here <<<.

RETURNING Players and Coaches

If you are a RETURNING player who played indoor or beach last year,  then when we add you to this year’s team you will receive an email confirmation that you have been added.  You can then (optionally) change any of your profile information, if required.  For instructions on changing your profile information >>> click here <<<.

If you have any problems or questions please contact the OVA’s Membership Services Coordinator Laura Mauer at 416-426-7132, or by email:
