The 2017 spring league season has begun! Many of our sites had their first practice last week and several more slated to begin this week. We are looking forward to another great volleyball season. Whether you previously played with USYVL or if this is your first time playing in one of our leagues we hope you have a memorable experience.
Our goal is to provide a fun, safe, and supervised environment so that your child can learn and play volleyball. At USYVL, every child plays. We work to provide balanced teams and a positive coaching environment.
Visit the program schedule section of the website
so that you can plan for the eight-week season ahead. Click on the location of your league to review the upcoming schedule.
USYVL is a volunteer organization with more than 5,000 parents giving their time and talents to work as coaches and administrators at our league sites. If you have not already signed up to volunteer at one of our sites, we encourage you to get involved. Volunteers help coach, set up courts, and monitor drills and games. You can sign up online or you can simply contact your league Site Director
The best sites are those where everyone is involved. No previous experience is required. USYVL will assist our volunteers to enhance the experience for participants. Anyone can volunteer, Moms, Dads, Sisters, Brothers, and Grandparents. You can make a difference.
Each participant receives a volleyball as part of registration. We encourage you to bring your ball to practices and games. USYVL provides each player with a season t-shirt (Red, White, or Blue). Each league site will receive player t-shirts during the second week of the season schedule. Players are encouraged to wear a shirt, shorts, athletic pants and shoes for practices and games. Every USYVL site provides court equipment and nets.
To get ready for the season you can check out our online video tutorials
that provide an excellent overview of the drills covered during practices.
We are excited about the new season! Volleyball Starts Here!
The United States Youth Volleyball League is excited to announce a new program in Pasadena, California this spring. We have worked hard to bring a new instructional volleyball program to the city of Pasadena for boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 15. This spring will be our first season in Pasadena and we would love you to join us to learn and play volleyball.
Our Pasadena program will be at Victory Park in Pasadena and will run on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. Please visit our Pasadena registration page to register
and read more about the league.
As our newest league to the spring slate, here are some highlights that parents and participants will see with our Pasadena league:
• Ages 7-15 (Divisions: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-15) (Age divisions are determined by child’s age on November 1st of participating year).
• While the program teaches children the skills necessary to excel in the sport of volleyball, the focus remains on participation, cooperation, sportsmanship, responsibility and, of course, fun!
• Strength, endurance and improved coordination result from the weekly activity of the program. Furthermore, a season of league games is sure to provide plenty of exciting volleyball action.
• Skills taught using technically correct methods for peak performance and safety.
• The USYVL is a family-oriented program where parents, siblings, grandparents, and friends are strongly encouraged to become involved.
Our leagues involve parents and families. When you register, make sure you sign up as a volunteer coach or assistant coach. No experience is required. There is a dedicated Clinician (Volleyball Instructor) at each USYVL site. As a volunteer, you will help the Clinician to monitor courts, assist with practice drills, and help with games. Our best sites are those where parents are actively involved with the kids to help them learn and play volleyball. To learn more about volunteer coaching with USYVL visit our, “Why Coach” page
If you are new to USYVL, we encourage you to bring along your friends. We have a Refer a Friend program perfect for you to share the fun of volleyball with your family or friends. If you refer one of your friends to USYVL, we will send you a t-shirt! To learn more visit our Refer a Friend page

The spring league is open to all boys and girls ages 7-15. The instructional league is perfect for boys and girls just starting out with volleyball or for those that are looking to improve their skill level. Each league site has quality volleyball instructors that help participants learn and enjoy playing volleyball.
One of the main tenets of our leagues is to encourage children to do their best with their abilities. With an emphasis on positive reinforcement, the program seeks to build confidence and self-esteem in each child.
At USYVL, every child plays. Your child will have fun while participating in a program that offers action, skill development, and teamwork. We encourage all participants to invite friends or family members to sign up this spring. If you refer a friend to the program, USYVL will send you a Volleyball Starts Here t-shirt
We also encourage parents to get involved and volunteers at our league sites. Why let the kids have all the fun? There are numerous ways to participate as a volunteer. We welcome parents and other family members to volunteer as an assistant coach or to help with administrative duties at our program locations. No previous experience is required. All you need is enthusiasm and the desire to make each spring league better than ever.
