Livermore USYVL Opens for Spring 2018

We are ecstatic to bring a new USYVL program to Livermore, CA at NB Courts. NB Courts is a beautiful facility in Livermore where we will have five courts full of kids ages 7-15 learning and playing volleyball.

The program will run at NB Courts located at 6474 Patterson Pass Rd., Livermore, CA 94550 and is scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 – 7 PM. Season runs from April 10 – May 31, 2018.

Here are some highlights that parents and participants will see with our new league:

• Ages 7-15 (Divisions: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-15) (Age divisions are determined by child’s age on November 1st of participating year).

• While the program teaches children the skills necessary to excel in the sport of volleyball, the focus remains on participation, cooperation, sportsmanship, responsibility and, of course, fun!

• Furthermore, a season of league games is sure to provide plenty of exciting volleyball action.

• The USYVL is a family-oriented program where parents, siblings, grandparents, and friends are involved by volunteering.

When you register, make sure you sign up as a volunteer coach or assistant coach. No experience is required. There is a dedicated Clinician (Volleyball Instructor) at each USYVL site. As a volunteer, you will help the Clinician to monitor courts, assist with practice drills, and help with games. Our best sites are those where parents are actively involved with the kids to help them learn and play volleyball. To learn more about volunteer coaching with USYVL visit our, “Why Coach” page.

If you are new to USYVL, we encourage you to let your friends know about the program. We have a Refer a Friend program perfect for you to share the fun of volleyball with your family or friends. If you refer one of your friends to USYVL, we will send you a cool t-shirt! To learn more visit our Refer a Friend page.

High School Students Can Earn Community Service Hours
High School Volunteers
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 have four age divisions 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-15.

Volunteers are a crucial component to the success of our leagues. This coming Spring 2018 season, we have programs in over 65 cities 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 community service hours requirements. 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 guide players through drills, lessons, practices, and games.

If you love being involved with your community or playing volleyball and enjoy working with kids this is a perfect opportunity to get involved.
