USYVL News, June 2011
 

Dear USYVL Families, 

 

I hope you had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend! 

 

It’s a pleasure to see smiles on the kid’s faces, coaches enjoying volunteering and parents supporting their kids at practices and games.  It makes it all worthwhile!

 

We have a myriad of activities going on, from the closing of the Spring season, to USYVL Summer Camps and Leagues and getting ready for the Fall.

 

Get ready for some more USYVL fun!

Executive Director

 

 

Fall League Registration in Full Swing

It seems like we just started the Spring season and it’s already time to register for the Fall! 

You can register online at www.USYVL.org or by mail. If you need a registration form give us a call at 1-888-988-7985 or you can also print one from the website.

 

Spring 2011 players who register onsite, on the final day of the season, for Fall 2011 receive an Asics Mesh Backpack!

 

Tom Hoff at Laguna Niguel  

The Laguna Niguel Clinician staff had a great addition this Spring -Tom Hoff! 

He is bringing his experience playing and coaching volleyball to the volunteer coaches and players at the Laguna Niguel USYVL.  You might say that program is lucky!  

Tom was a standout at Ohio State and then Long Beach State where he was the AVCA First-Team All-American in 1995 and 1996.  

To top it off he was one of the most dominating players on the United States Men's National Team and won a gold medal in the 2008 Olympics.

 

USYVL Summer Camps  

Camps will run in twelve cities, Aliso Viejo, Calabasas, Hermosa Beach, Irvine, Long Beach, Moorpark, Palos Verdes, Santa Monica, Saugus, Thousand Oaks, Torrance and Ventura.

USYVL Opens in Huntington Beach

Every year we get requests from folks in the Huntington Beach area wanting a program in their community.  Unfortunately, field availability was always an obstacle until this Fall 2011! 

Huntington Beach USYVL will open on Wednesday, September 14 at Huntington Central Sports Complex. 

We look forward to bringing another quality USYVL program to the community of Huntington Beach.

Coaches Corner

 

by Veronica Sanchez

The Double Max game is for the 9-10, 11-12 and 13-15 divisions. 

Traditional pass, set and spike. 

Rally score to 25, the team must win by 2 points.  A point is awarded on every rally; the team that wins the rally earns the point. 

Players have a two consecutive serve maximum.  Team, whose player is serving, has to earn the second serve.  After the second serve, regardless of which team won the rally, the serve turns over to the opposing team. 

Serving from inside the end line is allowed, but no further than the middle of the court is permitted for the underhand serve only.   

The ball may not hit the floor during play.

Each team remains on their designated side until the long whistle ends the game.  If a game to 25 is complete before the whistle is blown, switch sides and begin another game until the long whistle ends the game. 

The Let Serve is a serve that hits the net when the ball is put in play and lands in your opponent’s court.

 

Examples:

 A player serves over the net and his/her team wins the rally.  The serving player’s team earns a point and a second serve.  The player serves over the net again and his/her team wins the rally.  The serving player’s team earns a point, but the serve automatically turns over to the opposing team’s next server.

A player serves over the net and his/her team wins the rally.  The serving player’s team earns a point and a second serve.  The player serves over the net again and the opposing team wins the rally.  The opposing team earns a points and the serve.

A player serves over the net and misses his/her serve.  The opposing team earns a point and the serve.

A player serves over the net and the opposing team wins the rally.  The opposing team earns a point and the serve.
