USYVL Founders Award Presented to Laurie McCarter
The USYVL Founders Award is presented annually to the individual who has exhibited outstanding leadership, demonstrated a sustained commitment to our programs, and has made a positive impact on the organization.
This year we are honored to present the Founders Award to Laurie McCarter, who started with the organization in 1999. Laurie began as a registration assistant and soon agreed to take on the role of Head Coach for her son’s team. Additionally, she served as a Site Director where she oversaw the Moorpark program for 10 years. During her tenure with USYVL she has filled a number of roles including Coach, Clinician, Site Director and city representative. Laurie has three children, Kyle, Jessica, and Katie who all played volleyball with USYVL. Laurie also met her future husband, Paul McCarter, during her first season with USYVL. Paul was serving as a USYVL Clinician and remained in that role for the entire time Laurie served as a Site Director.
USYVL is honored to add Laurie to the distinguished list of previous recipients including 2013 Award winner, Dale Hoffman, co-founder of USYVL who was there from day one, 2014 Award winner, Veronica Sanchez, who served as USYVL’s very first Clinician (volleyball instructor), and 2015 Award winner, Jane Clancy, USYVL’s first Site Director.
Congratulations to all who have shared their time, talents, and knowledge with USYVL and its participants.
USYVL LAUNCHES NEW ONLINE STORE
TORRANCE, Calif., (June 27, 2016) – The United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL) today announced the launch of a new online store. 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. Donations to support USYVL’s various programs can be made at www.usyvl.givingfuel.com/usyvl-general-donations.
