A little past the halfway mark of the year also means it is time for the United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL) midyear donation drive and growth initiative! This year marks the 20th anniversary of USYVL. For two decades, our organization has provided children across the country with the opportunity to learn and play volleyball in a fun, safe, and supervised environment. Our programs emphasize positive reinforcement, offer quality instruction, and invite parents, volunteers, and local communities to get involved. A point of emphasis for USYVL has always been that every child plays regardless of skill level, ability, or financial status. In fact, USYVL has never turned a child away because of financial difficulties. With your help, we can continue to fund our “Every Child Plays” financial aid program and bring volleyball to any child that desires to learn and play. We are grateful that as USYVL has grown, so has the support of parents, volunteers, and local communities. Along with that growth, there is a need to improve educational resources and training opportunities for our programs, clinicians, and coaches. Every donation, no matter the dollar amount, will help to improve our ability to provide meaningful training and deliver a positive environment for kids to learn and play volleyball. To make a donation please visit our donation page or simply send a text message with a dollar amount to 310-341-0048. Your generous donation will have lasting impact on our programs, participants, and their families. You can also make a donation as part of the registration process for our fall leagues and Advanced Juniors programs. To locate a league in your area, visit USYVL’s registration page.
