USYVL is actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) updates to best assist programs in all of our communities.  The health and safety of our families is priority number one!

At the Governor’s request, we have postponed programs that have a start date of May 15 or before.  All postponed events will be rescheduled to start at a later date following the CDC, and state and local public health authorities guidelines.  We are working diligently to get those dates confirmed from each city so that we can communicate the most accurate information.

We are taking precautions preparing for the season by running our Player & Parent Orientation meetings and Coaching Clinics via conference calls.

First and foremost, please follow the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html). These resources are updated as new information becomes available and should be checked frequently.

General guidelines from the CDC to help individuals prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses include:

  • * Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • * Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • * Stay home when you are sick.
  • * Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • * Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • * Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

Given the urgent nature of this situation, USYVL will continue to monitor information from the CDC, and state and local public health authorities, and will regularly share any updates that relate directly to USYVL programs.

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.
