United States Youth Volleyball League’s (USYVL) 2014 Spring Season is on the doorstep, and you have an opportunity to invite a friend to play this season. By introducing your friend, or friends, to USYVL, you’ll help them develop volleyball and teamwork skills, and stay active and healthy. However, perhaps best of all, you’ll have another good friend in the league. Who doesn’t love that?
If you refer a friend, USYVL has a special gift for you. There's no limit to how many friends you can refer, and you get more gifts as you refer more friends! (Be sure to tell your friend to note during the registration process that you referred them.)
We definitely encourage you to refer a friend to the league this spring! But you’ll have to hurry, since the action and excitement is about to begin.
Your time on the court is only days away!

USYVL Board Member Allen Adams brings home the gold from the Huntsman World Seniors Game this year, held in St. George, Utah. Adams’s team, USYVL/Volleyguard competed in the 55+ age bracket against teams comprised of players from across the US. 90 teams compete each season in various sports, all with the goal of succeeding into the Double Elimination Tournament, where Adams’s team was named #1 Seed in the Gold bracket. The road to the victory was no easy feat, as USYVL/Volleyguard spent a round in the “loser’s bracket” as Adams calls it after losing two straights to The Fog. “Volleyguard is protecting the future of volleyball, while The Fog is attempting to hide talent,” USYVL co-founder Randy Sapoznik fuels in agreement of USYVL/Volleyguard effort.
Adams posits the focus of participation in this year’s competition as being most influenced by the intention of building awareness of the USYVL and gaining scholarship backing for younger-generation Volleyguards. Adams is but one of many who contributes to USYVL culture of setting the standard for the organization and its constituents, but serves as a shining example of doing your best with your abilities, one of USYVL’s main tenets for its youth.
We would like to congratulate our USYVL Board Member Marv Dunphy on helping the U.S Women’s National Team win its first World Championships! This is not the first championship Marv Dunphy has help win. Marv has help the US Men’s National Team win two Olympic gold medals but this is the first time that the US Women’s Team has ever won the World Championships. Marv Assisted Karch Kiraly (head coach) with this championship. It is special because Karch was once a player of Marv’s when he was playing on the USA National Team. Through his years coaching at all levels, he has shown that he is great with teaching volleyball to the up and coming USYVL, High School, College, National Team volleyball players, as well as coaches.
We would like to Congratulate Marv once again for helping a game founded in the USA grow.

On a sunny Wednesday afternoon last week, professional beach volleyball players Billy Allen, Andrew Fuller and Janelle Allen took a stroll to the Hermosa Beach USYVL site.
They took this opportunity to do some volleyball skill demonstrations for the kids, show them what playing volleyball at a higher level is like and topped it off with some cool prizes.
The players graciously stayed to watch the kids play their scheduled games and at the end signed autographs for each one!
Thank you to Billy, Andrew and Janelle for making it a very special day for the Hermosa Beach USYVL kids!

Learning proper techniques from the outset can be important for many disciplines, and volleyball certainly is no exception. United States Youth Volleyball League’s (USYVL) proven teaching methods help kids develop proper form in a fun, supportive environment. With Clinicians – our experts in volleyball instruction -- at each site overseeing the teaching curriculum, ensuring that our coaches are utilizing the most effective coaching methods, the kids are given a proven system for success. There is nothing more fun than watching the joy the kids have while they learn, and improve upon, their volleyball skills.
Many of the kids in the USYVL go on the play volleyball in high school and college. But, more importantly, all players take with them the spirit of teamwork and sportsmanship, which, as we all know, has benefits well beyond the boundaries of the court.
