Open Gym Volleyball
Monday (Beginners/Intermediate): 6 - 9 pm
Thursday (Advanced Players): 6 - 9 pm

Center on Halsted hosts Open Gym Volleyball to provide a welcoming and safe environment for volleyball players of all skill levels. We welcome your participation in building an affirming volleyball community in which all players find a home and community.

Nights/Skill Levels
To allow all volleyball players to enjoy their experience and play with similar skill levels, we have divided open gym nights based on skill level. Monday nights are for Beginners and Intermediate players while Thursdays are for advanced players only. Both nights run from 6pm-9pm.

If you are new to Open Gym Volleyball, don’t worry! Our Monday nights are for beginning, recreational and intermediate volleyball players. These players know the general rules of the game but may not know the more technical rules of play.

Our Thursday nights are for advanced-level volleyball players and is suited for those with league experience ranked A or BB. We do not hold an up-front assessment of a player’s skill level, but will observe new players during Thursday night open gym to ensure they maintain a high level of play. Some players may be asked to consider moving to Monday nights. If you have any questions, please email

Note, signing up for sessions as both a beginner/intermediate player and as an advanced player are grounds for suspension from participation in Open Gym Volleyball. To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all players, it is important that players are matched with those of the same skill level. Our experienced volunteers are here to help you.

There is a $10 fee per night per player, which must be purchased online. Unfortunately, the Center cannot provide refunds for your purchase or make-up sessions in the event that you need to miss a night for which you’ve purchased a pass.

Please note that monthly passes are no longer available, and no purchases can occur onsite other than via the web. Passes are only good for the specific night you’ve purchased.

Please have a copy of your purchase confirmation email available on your phone for display to our open gym volunteer upon entry.

Waivers/Community Expectations
Players must be 18+ years of age, sign a waiver form upon arrival for each night of play, and agree to abide by all gym rules and regulations. Collegiality toward Center staff and volunteers, in addition to other players, is an important part of our community expectations.
