High School Students Can Earn Community Service Hours

Are you ready to help make a difference in your local community? It is time to get involved with USYVL!

We are seeking high school volunteers to coach and help younger kids learn the basic skills of volleyball. USYVL operates co-ed youth volleyball leagues for kids ages 7-15. Our leagues group players into four age divisions 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-15.

Volunteers are crucial component to the success of our leagues. This season we have programs in over 60 locations where you can come share your time and talents with young volleyball players in your local community. Volunteer coaching is a fun way to get involved and work with young players.

Students who volunteer with USYVL can receive up to 40 community service hours. Volunteering as an assistant coach for USYVL is a great way to fulfill high school requirements or community service hours that students need to complete. The weekly time commitment for volunteers is generally three to four hours per week.

Each league has a dedicated Clinician (Volleyball Instructor) that supervises the local site. Under the direction of the Clinician, volunteer assistant coaches monitor kids and guide players through drills, lessons, practices, and games.

If you love playing volleyball and enjoy working with kids this is a perfect opportunity to give back to the community.

If you are a high school student or know someone that is interested in volunteering with USYVL for community service hours, please fill out the form below or contact our Program Director, Veronica Sanchez at 1-888-988-7985.

Board Event Benefits Youth Volleyball

The USYVL Board recently held a special event for the benefit of our Annual Scholarship Fund. The event featured the talented five-piece woodwind group, the “Ember Tones” and included silent auction items for attendees to bid on.

It was a terrific event where the Ember Tones entertained attendees that purchased tickets to the event in the Santa Rosa Valley in California. The group demonstrated their expertise in arranging their own musical numbers that created a memorable evening with music from some of cinemas greatest movies.

The USYVL Board wishes to thank those individuals that purchased tickets to the event and placed bids on silent auction items. All proceeds from this special event will be donated to USYVL’s Annual Scholarship Fund.

Allen Adams, USYVL Board President noted, “The USYVL Scholarship Drive provides funds for youth that otherwise are unable to participate in our volleyball leagues. It provides them an opportunity to grow, learn valuable skills, and improve their self-esteem which reflects in all areas of their lives.” Adams continued, “We had a wonderful evening and appreciate all that participated in our event, giving of their time and resources.”

Due to the generosity of attendees, USYVL will be able to support an additional 30 individuals who wish to participate in one of our volleyball programs this year!

Since 1998, USYVL has never turned away a child from participating in one of our programs because of financial status. We express gratitude to the USYVL Board and to the attendees of the event who continue to ensure that each child that wishes to learn and play volleyball will have access to our programs regardless of their financial situation.

Every child plays at USYVL!
