Of course, the team at USYVL will be forever grateful, since it is through volunteer efforts that the league remains affordable (and doesn’t include the need for personal fundraising like many youth sports programs do).
Here are the options:
Are you the type that likes to take a leadership role? Or are you looking to ensure the next generation of volleyball players has a solid fundamental base? If so, the United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL) has a couple great opportunities for you. For the upcoming Spring 2014 Season, USYVL is seeking Site Directors and Clinicians.
The basic responsibilities of the Site Director include oversight of the players and volunteers at your community site. This person is organized, efficient and works well with people, and has a huge impact on the site. Site directors recruit, organize and maintain the volunteer staff, assign equipment, assign the First Aid Administrator, handle registration, ensure forms are complete and oversee the parent meeting that takes place at the beginning of the season, and serve as the primary liaison between the site and USYVL National Office. The job runs for the entire 8 weeks of the program, with a modicum of work before and after the season. Typically, the Site Director position requires approximately 4 hours of time per week. USYVL offers excellent training and a complete job description. Be a leader!
USYVL Clinicians are responsible for training and overseeing the site’s parent-volunteer coaches in the team instruction of the fundamentals of volleyball. This position is ideal for a college volleyball player looking to sharpen one’s coaching and leadership skills, or a current volleyball coach with an eye on the future. Clinicians have an opportunity to implement a proven teaching system, which expedites learning for the children in the program. Best of all, it is fun! Clinicians teach the skills to volunteer coaches through a 2-hour pre-season coaching clinic, and demonstrate skills during practice days. Clinicians also oversee game days and tournaments, and participate in the pre-season parent meeting.
Through a 3-hour pre-season training meeting, a complete written curriculum for the 8-week program, and support from the USYVL National Office, Clinicians are well prepared for their role. Because of the high level coaching responsibility, this person must be dependable and have experience playing and/or coaching volleyball at the high school, club, college or higher level. The time commitment is approximately 4 hours per week. A stipend is available for the Clinician position.
