USYVL kids attend Step Forward Day
On Saturday, September 10, USYVL participants were invited to Pepperdine’s Step Forward Day. Since 1988, Pepperdine has hosted this annual event to encourage members of the university community to embrace volunteer and service opportunities.
As part of Step Forward Day, the Pepperdine Men’s Volleyball Team and the Women’s Sand Volleyball team hosted a free clinic for youth volleyball players. The clinic was led by Pepperdine Head Coach Marv Dunphy and provided boys and girls an incredible opportunity to learn volleyball skills from one of the country’s top coaches.
USYVL was pleased to have this opportunity to participant in a wonderful event that supports the importance of community involvement and service. It was a great to see the kids enjoy the day and improve their volleyball knowledge and skills.
USYVL kids were also able to meet Kayla Banwarth, a member of the U.S. Women’s National Team that took home a Bronze Medal at the Rio Olympics this summer.
We would like to offer a special thank you to Pepperdine volleyball players and Coach Dunphy for providing a memorable experience for USYVL participants.

Available at usyvl.org, the new online store features three distinct apparel lines associated with the organization including USYVL apparel items, “Volleyball Starts Here” and “Volley Guard.”
“We are thrilled to announce the launch of our official online store,” said Randy Sapoznik, Founder and Executive Director. “With the growth of USYVL programs across the country, we wanted to provide parents, supporters, participants, and volunteers not only the opportunity to represent an established and respected brand within the volleyball community, but also to provide a way for supporters to contribute to the growth of the sport.” Sapoznik continued, “In 18 years we’ve never turned away a child that wants to play volleyball based on financial issues. Purchases of USYVL apparel will go to support our programs and ensure that every child plays regardless of economic status.”
Apparel available at the USYVL online store includes shirts, sweatshirts, hats, shorts, and bags. The launch of the new online store allows easy access to USYVL items. With more than 15,000 players annually, the new store provides the growing number of volleyball players and family members the chance to purchase high-quality items while supporting the mission of USYVL.
USYVL’s instructional volleyball programs provide boys and girls ages 7-15 the opportunity to learn and play volleyball in a fun, safe, and supervised environment. Support for these programs can be made through apparel purchases on the new online store or via USYVL’s annual mid-year donation drive.
