WHISTLER OUTDOOR VOLLEYBALL ASSOCIATION
The elements of WOVA’s vision include:
1) sustaining the local league,
2) developing a tournament scene that draws people from all over to compete and,
3) creating a camp and clinic component that develops players and coaches, youth and adult, both local and visitors.
These elements are intended to excite and foster enthusiasm when people think about playing Beach Volleyball in Whistler.
WOVA’s goal is for the Beach Volleyball community to continue to thrive and introduce new people to the sport and our playground.
WOVA's Adult leauge is composed of 5 divisions with 12 teams in each division. Weekly competitions run all summer.
