Covid-19 Update September 29, 2020

USYVL is monitoring daily, COVID-19 updates to best assist programs in all of our communities.  The health and safety of our players, coaches, volunteers and parents is our priority.

Many city parks and recreation departments have begun to approve permits for youth sports again but only for skill development, no scrimmaging or game play, with strict Covid-19 guidelines.

Each program is being looked at on a case by case basis and the Covid-19 guidelines set forth by their city’s parks and recreation department, before providing any program this Fall 2020.

Unfortunately, some of the guidelines are not possible with the sport of volleyball and volunteer coaches.  Any program that we are able to offer during Fall 2020 (September, October, November, December) has to be very limited in numbers and will require a paid coach.

All programs will be following the CDC, and state and local public health authorities guidelines.

Why I Coach

My daughter Isabelle is why I coach. I played volleyball through middle school and high school, so when she started showing an interest in volleyball in the summer of 2017 I immediately looked into the USYVL program. When she saw that parents can volunteer to be coaches, she was so excited for us to do this activity together. We were both nervous going into that first season but we quickly saw that the program and the people were amazing. We made a routine of our practice nights: a playlist of songs to listen to on the drive there, going out for dinner afterwards, and some one-on-one time for girl talk. Before we knew it we had finished our first season and were counting the days until our next one. The USYVL program has given my daughter the opportunity to make new friends, has helped her find a passion for sports, and has a given us the time to add a new layer to our mother-daughter relationship. The smile on Isabelle’s face is why I coach.
