USYVL’s summer league season recently concluded. It was another great season of fun and volleyball in sites across the country from California and Washington to Illinois and Pennsylvania. We have seen tremendous growth in our summer programs and the progress at these sites has led to more fun and more volleyball in communities across the country. In just our second summer season in Lake Tahoe, California, the league continues to grow. USYV’s mission is to provide every child between the ages of 7 and 15 the chance to learn and play volleyball in a fun, safe, and supervised environment. It has been a rewarding experience to see the growth in leagues like our Lake Tahoe program and others across the country. A large amount of the credit goes to our wonderful volunteers and volleyball coaches who have worked to build new programs into thriving leagues in just a year’s time. USYVL programs run on the enthusiasm and energy from our parents and volunteers.
