USYVL launched it’s first Summer Camp in Thousand Oaks on Monday, June 21 with great success!  The turnout was phenomenal and the instructors did a  fantastic job teaching the players.  The improvement of the players in a three day period and the perfect attendance by all players was just icing on the cake.

The end of the season at Santa Maria USYVL is an event not to be missed!

Headed by on of our best Site Director's, Eric, the program truly captures the spirit of USYVL.

Players and parents go to the program to learn the skills and play the game, but they leave with so much more.  Eric has created a true community program in Santa Maria where player's can't wait for the season to start and players that graduate from the program come back every year to donate their time and teach the younger players.

The last day of the season is a celebration of food, music, special guests, contests and prizes for all the players and volunteers.  It's a celebration of all the hard work put into the season by all the players and volunteers!

Thank you Eric!

It's Summer and the USYVL season doesn't start until September.

If there is a USYVL summer camp near, that is a great opportunity to sharpen your volleyball skills.

For the rest, take out your volleyball and grab a friend to work on the basic skills.  Passing and setting can be done without a net.   

You can check your local park or school for a volleyball court to practice your serving and hitting skills.  If you gather enough friends, play a game of volleyball.

Setting is one of the most exciting skills of volleyball, it's like the quarterback in a football game.  

The hand position needs to be above the forehead.  Thumbs should be close to one another with wrists back and somewhat down.  Elbows should be slightly in front of the shoulders.  The hands should be in the shape of a volleyball. 

The movement that follows is the player extends their arms after contacting the ball, pushing it to the desired target.  Arms should finish fully extended. 

During the off season, take out your volleyball and practice setting!

One of the greatest rewards is sharing your knowledge of volleyball with the younger players!
