Movie in the Park

On Saturday, July 15, USYVL invites our Moorpark participants, parents, and volunteers to attend “Movies in the Park” presented by the City of Moorpark! Admission to the event is FREE!

Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy a family movie. It will be the perfect summer night activity for family and friends. It will be a fun filled evening with activities, games, and of course the movie.

The city will be showing the movie, “The Good Dinosaur.”

Fun and activities start at 7:15 PM and the movie will begin at 8:15 PM at Mammoth Highlands Park.

As part of the event, USYVL will have a booth at the park that evening. Included with the pre-movie activities, USYVL will provide a volleyball demo from 7:15 PM to 8:15 PM. The demonstration will include players and coaches performing drills and games.

We are looking for volunteer coaches and players from our USYVL Moorpark site that would be willing to participate in the volleyball demo. If you are interested and willing to participate in the volleyball demo, please email [email protected] with “Moorpark Movies in the Park” in the subject line.

Once we have a list of volunteers for the volleyball demonstration we will provide further details. You will need to arrive at the event a little early for set-up and instruction.

It will be a fun night and a great opportunity to highlight USYVL to the community in Moorpark. USYVL will also have materials on hand with information about our fall league in the community.

If you have not registered for our fall season, please visit our registration page and sign up today!

Why should you sign up for USYVL?

Each league follows a handful of guiding philosophies that ensure the success of USYVL programs.

Open Registration
Our leagues are open to all children ages 7-15 who want to learn and play volleyball. Interest and enthusiasm for volleyball are the only requirements for playing with USYVL! All programs are eight weeks long and meet twice per week. One day is for practices while the other day is for games (two 25-minute games).

Every Child Plays
Our goal is for each child to learn and play volleyball. Our programs ensure that each child has the opportunity to actively participate as a member of the team. No prior volleyball experience is required. A volleyball instructor is on site for each practice and game.

Balanced Teams
We require that every site at the beginning of each season create teams that are evenly balanced. It is more fun when teams are constructed with equal ability. Our four-person format allows kids to play every position. Teams are grouped by four age ranges: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-15. Ages are defined according to how old participants are on November 1st of the current year. All teams in the league are coed.

Positive Coaching
Positive coaching generates a great spirit to help each child learn and develop volleyball skills. We train and encourage our coaches to make the extra effort to understand the needs of each player and offer positive instruction to participants rather than negative criticism. Instruction includes learning the basics of the game including: serving, setting, passing, spiking, and blocking.

Good Sportsmanship
We create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude. Our programs are designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of USYVL.

Board Event Benefits Youth Volleyball

The USYVL Board recently held a special event for the benefit of our Annual Scholarship Fund. The event featured the talented five-piece woodwind group, the “Ember Tones” and included silent auction items for attendees to bid on.

It was a terrific event where the Ember Tones entertained attendees that purchased tickets to the event in the Santa Rosa Valley in California. The group demonstrated their expertise in arranging their own musical numbers that created a memorable evening with music from some of cinemas greatest movies.

The USYVL Board wishes to thank those individuals that purchased tickets to the event and placed bids on silent auction items. All proceeds from this special event will be donated to USYVL’s Annual Scholarship Fund.

Allen Adams, USYVL Board President noted, “The USYVL Scholarship Drive provides funds for youth that otherwise are unable to participate in our volleyball leagues. It provides them an opportunity to grow, learn valuable skills, and improve their self-esteem which reflects in all areas of their lives.” Adams continued, “We had a wonderful evening and appreciate all that participated in our event, giving of their time and resources.”

Due to the generosity of attendees, USYVL will be able to support an additional 30 individuals who wish to participate in one of our volleyball programs this year!

Since 1998, USYVL has never turned away a child from participating in one of our programs because of financial status. We express gratitude to the USYVL Board and to the attendees of the event who continue to ensure that each child that wishes to learn and play volleyball will have access to our programs regardless of their financial situation.

Every child plays at USYVL!
