Olympian Lauren Fendrick visits USYVL

Lauren Fendrick, a member of Team USA’s beach volleyball team, recently visited our USYVL site in Hermosa Beach, California. Fendrick, along with AVP Champion, Billy Allen, were able to instruct boys and girls on the fundamentals of volleyball.

We always appreciate the time these Olympians and professional volleyball players give to the volleyball community. USYVL kids certainly love hearing and learning from players like Fendrick and Allen who have worked hard and achieved much in the volleyball world.

For more on the story, check out KNBC in Los Angeles that published a story and posted a video on Fendrick’s USYVL visit and her preparations for the Olympics. Visit KNBC’s website here for the full story.

 


Best wishes to Lauren in Rio this summer as she participates in the Olympic Games!

USYVL Congratulates Kim Hill for making Team USA!

USYVL would like to congratulate Kim Hill for being named to the U.S. Olympic Women’s Volleyball Team for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio! Kim is an outstanding volleyball player and has worked hard to earn a spot on the roster.

During her time as a member of the Pepperdine Women’s Volleyball Team, Kim participated as a volunteer instructor for one of our clinics for USYVL participants. It is always great to have professional and college level players willing to volunteer their time and offer positive and helpful volleyball instruction to USYVL kids. Thank you, Kim for being a great example of hard work and determination.

It is also another reminder to USYVL participants to dream big and work hard. You never know how far those goals and dreams will take you. Perhaps you will be on the next U.S. Olympic Volleyball Team!

Once again, congratulations to Kim Hill! Best wishes to the U.S. Women’s Volleyball Team in Rio! Bring home the gold!

TORRANCE, Calif., (June 27, 2016) – The United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL) today announced the launch of a new online store.

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.
