USYVL runs a volleyball clinic at the Sharefest Youth Development Academy!

The clinic took place Thursday, August 11 at California State University Dominguez Hills.  Over 200 middle school students had the opportunity to learn volleyball skills from some of the best volleyball players.

As a special treat, Dain Blanton, 2000 Olympic Gold Medalist of Men's Beach Volleyball, stopped by to talk to the kids, work with them in learning the sport and signed autographs!

When you think of Griffith Park, what do you think of first? The observatory? Famous film location? The zoo? The Greek Theatre? L.A. Equestrian Center? Well, now you can add to that the latest United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL) site.

The largest municipal park in the Unites States with urban wilderness, Griffith Park has been the site of many movies (think the classic Rebel Without a Cause), TV shows and commercials. Sometimes, it is referred to as the Los Angeles’ Central Park. However, at 4,310 acres, it is actually much larger than Central Park.

 

Taking place on Wednesdays and Saturdays from April 2 through May 31, the USYVL spring season in Griffith Park will give families in the Los Feliz area with children ages 7 to 15 easy access to a program. Registration is now available at the Los Feliz site at a special early registration rate of $130 per child. Multi-child discounts are available.  The registration fee goes to $150 on March 1, 2014. See you in the park!

USYVL Supports Pasadena Fire Dept. in 5K Walk to Benefit Breast Cancer Awareness 

 

 

 

Tuesday, October 14, 2014—Pasadena Fire Department hosted a 5K run at the Rose Bowl in support of breast cancer research, with all funds raised to directly benefit The Huntington Hills Breast Center (Pasadena, CA). Locals of all ages joined forces and came together in waves of pink in support of the cause. USYVL supported the endeavor by setting up court for a game of volleyball, All Pro versus Pasadena Firefighters, with guest pro beach volleyball players Billy Allen, Trevor Crabb, and Avery Drost, along with players and the Head Coach from Pierce College. Guests and passersby also participated in the “Ace-A-Pro for Charity” challenge and a community volleyball game comprised of players of all backgrounds.

 

The event began with Celebrity trainer Dion Jackson leading the crowd in an upbeat pre-run workout. Newscaster Lolita Lopes also joined USYVL and Pasadena Fire by walk the 5K and playing a community game against the beach pros, Marine Corps participants, and firefighters.

When Tom Hoff called and told me about Tim, there was no question as to what to do!

We put together a package of items that a 15 year old volleyball player should have.  A Park & Sun Spectrum net system, Molten volleyball, Asics backpack and a couple of other items.

There was a wonderful reception at the Anaheim White House, where Stephanie McCormick the CEO from the Orange County/Inland Empire Make-a-Wish Foundation explained that this was the largest gift granting that the Make a wish foundation has ever done.  Not only were they sending Tim and his family, but a large number of kids and their families from the US and around the world to the London Olympics. 

The send off included a number of former Olympians; Jamie Komer, the 2008 Olympic Silver Medalist in Water Polo, Peter Vidmar, the 1984 Double Gold & Silver Medalist in Men’s Gymnastics, Pat McCormick, a 1952 & 1956 Olympic Gold Medalist.  To top it off, Reid Priddy and Clay Stanley who will be leading the Men’s National Team in  London.

The star of the day though, was Tim!  He is a very humble kid who has his sights on becoming a member of the USA Men’s National Volleyball Team.  After spending a couple hours with him I realized that he knows what is important and is willing to work hard to get there.  

We hope to see Tim at some of the USYVL sites upon his return to talk about his Olympic experience.

As another successful spring season winds down for the United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL), a big “thank you” is due to the many volunteers who made it happen for the kids. The volunteer crew is essential to the success of the league, keeping the league affordable while, at the same time, offering a family atmosphere, since so many family members are involved. We’re grateful for the time donated by each and every volunteer this past season. Your efforts created a terrific experience for the children participating in USYVL.  

 

If you haven’t volunteered in the past, and have a child participating in the future, you are certainly encouraged to volunteer. The guidelines to volunteer are available on the USYVL website.  

 

In addition to donating time, monetary donations derived from the charity and goodwill of many individual donors, along with corporate sponsors, assist the USYVL in achieving its mission to provide every child an opportunity to learn the sport of volleyball in a fun, safe, and supervised environment. Donations improve opportunities for children in the league in two ways. First, children with a desire to play in the league, but are faced with verified financial need, are offered assistance. Since the inception of the league, thanks to donations, no child has ever been turned down from participating in the league based on financial circumstances. Second, donations fund important USYVL education and training programs, which benefit all children involved with USYVL.   

 

If you are in a position to be able to make a monetary donation, we encourage you to join our board members in donating $25, $50, $100, or any amount you can comfortably give to USYVL. Each donation, no matter the amount, makes a difference! 

 

The opportunities for health, fitness, self-esteem building and, of course, learning the skills of volleyball, offered through the USYVL continue. Thank you for being part of it.

Becca was 8 years old when she started playing for USYVL, and learned early on that she really liked spiking the ball.  It didn't always go where she wanted it to for a few years, but it still felt so good to hit the ball HARD!  After many years of USYVL she moved on to club volleyball, played all through high school, and is now finishing up her senior year at Hendrix College, in Conway, Arkansas.  She was a starting outside hitter all four years at this NCAA Division III school, where she set the record for All time Career Kills and was second in All Time Career Attempts and Most Kills in a Season.  Becca still loves playing volleyball, and also loves coaching volleyball.   Look for her at USYVL summer camps in the near future!
