The USYVL Annual Fundraising Drive is in full gear so please help us meet our goal this year.

It is our mission to provide the best volleyball programs in the US and we need your help!

Our Community Fund provides every child the opportunity to play volleyball; we have never turned a child away.

It also allows us to provide training resources for our volunteers, quality equipment to use at each of our programs and youth volleyball clinics.

Help give every child the opportunity to play volleyball!

November 5 turned out to be a great day, the sun was shining and the sky was blue.

The kids put together all the skills they learned and perfected throughout the season and played the last two games of Fall 2011.

The trophies were a reward for all the hard work put in by the kids and they were received with excitement.

To top it off, each team had a small potluck to celebrate the season.

Thank you to all the volunteers who donated their time and made this a great experience for the kids!

The Fall 2011 season saw a myriad of team names from sites in California to Pasadena, MD. 

The voting process was extensive and the winners were!

First place was Serves You Right from Santa Cruz, CA.

Second Place was Serve US with a Smile from South Fayette, PA.

Third Place was Cinnabomb from Valencia, CA.

Each team received “volleyball starts here!” t-shirts.

Congratulations!

If you are concerned about not having time or enough experience to coach a team, here’s a little information that will change your mind!

The time you will be coaching is the same schedule as that of your child and you get to coach your child’s team.  If you don’t want to coach your child’s team, you can coach a different team.

The experience we are looking for is ability to follow directions, keep the team organized and run practices under the supervision of a Clinician (volleyball instructor). 

You may not know that every site has a trained Clinician (volleyball instructor) that guides all volunteer coaches on the day’s practice, how to do it and how to run it.  They are also there to help you with demonstrations and anything you need!

Coaching for the USYVL is easy, fun and low pressure!

If you are interested in being a coach or an assistant coach for a team this season, give us a call at 1-888-988-7985.

On Saturday, September 10, USYVL kids had the opportunity to attend a volleyball clinic directed by Marv Dunphy.  The clinic was held at Alumni Park at Pepperdine University, which has a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. 

Marv is the Men’s Volleyball Coach at Pepperdine University.  He is recognized as one of the leading coaches in the sport!  He was the coach of the 1988 United States Men’s Olympic Gold Medal Team and was inducted into the Volleyball Hall of Fame in 1994.

Clinic participants worked on the fundamentals of volleyball, advanced drills and even got to play a few games.  What better way to get ready for the USYVL Fall 2011 season than this!

A very big thank you to Marv from USYVL and the USYVL Kids!
