Why should you sign up for USYVL?

Each league follows a handful of guiding philosophies that ensure the success of USYVL programs.

Open Registration
Our leagues are open to all children ages 7-15 who want to learn and play volleyball. Interest and enthusiasm for volleyball are the only requirements for playing with USYVL! All programs are eight weeks long and meet twice per week. One day is for practices while the other day is for games (two 25-minute games).

Every Child Plays
Our goal is for each child to learn and play volleyball. Our programs ensure that each child has the opportunity to actively participate as a member of the team. No prior volleyball experience is required. A volleyball instructor is on site for each practice and game.

Balanced Teams
We require that every site at the beginning of each season create teams that are evenly balanced. It is more fun when teams are constructed with equal ability. Our four-person format allows kids to play every position. Teams are grouped by four age ranges: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-15. Ages are defined according to how old participants are on November 1st of the current year. All teams in the league are coed.

Positive Coaching
Positive coaching generates a great spirit to help each child learn and develop volleyball skills. We train and encourage our coaches to make the extra effort to understand the needs of each player and offer positive instruction to participants rather than negative criticism. Instruction includes learning the basics of the game including: serving, setting, passing, spiking, and blocking.

Good Sportsmanship
We create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude. Our programs are designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of USYVL.

Tournament at VELO Center
Velo
This weekend USYVL’s Advanced Juniors programs will have a spring tournament (May 18th) at the VELO Sports Center in Carson, California. Teams from Calabasas, Camarillo, Fountain Valley, Irvine, Long Beach, Saddleback Valley, Thousand Oaks and Torrance will participate in the tournament.

During the spring season, our Advanced Juniors program hosts three weekend tournaments as part of the volleyball schedule. This is a great opportunity for several of our intermediate volleyball programs to meet at the same venue and enjoy fun and volleyball together. The tournament will feature games with a six-player format.

The VELO Sports Center is a fantastic venue that hosts many training programs for several sports disciplines. In addition, the center hosts annual international sports competitions. It is an excellent facility and presents a terrific opportunity for our young players to experience a unique environment to play volleyball.

USYVL’s Advanced Juniors program is for intermediate and advanced players to prepare and assist their transition from four person instructional leagues to competitive indoor competition with a six-player format. The goal of the Advanced Juniors program is to create a pathway for players to advance to a higher level of competition such as High School or Club volleyball.

The Advanced Juniors is a co-ed program and is open to boys and girls ages 12-16 with two age divisions, 14-Under and 16-Under.

To learn more about our Advanced Juniors program visit us online. For boys and girls looking for an advanced volleyball program, Advanced Juniors offers a more competitive environment in contrast to our instructional leagues.

USYVL Opens Registration for Youth Volleyball Summer Camps
The United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL) opened registration for three-day instructional youth volleyball camps this summer. Summer camps are located throughout Northern and Southern California at locations including Camarillo, Culver City, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Laguna Niguel, Long Beach, Los Gatos, Moorpark, Mountain View, Sacramento, San Jose, Thousand Oaks and Torrance. Camps are available for boys and girls ages 7-15.

USYVL Summer Camp programs focus on skill development to improve and enhance all aspects of player’s technique and proficiency on the court. Our summer camp program is for beginner, intermediate, and advanced volleyball players. To register or to learn more about the program, visit our summer camps website.

At our summer camps, participants learn in smaller groups according to age and skill level. These smaller groups allow our experienced instructors more time for individual coaching and instruction within a team environment. The player to coach ratio for USYVL Summer Camps is 8:1, which permits more flexibility and time for coaches to work one-on-one with participants.

Best of all, summer camps are fun! We work to create a positive environment based on mutual respect, rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude. For information on USYVL Summer Camp registration, locations, schedules or volunteer opportunities, visit www.usyvl.org or contact us at 1-888-988-7985 or [email protected].
