USYVL is for parents, too!

USYVL is for parents, too! Consider joining the fun on your child’s volleyball team as a volunteer coach – no experience is needed! The emphasis is on having a good time and supporting the team, making it a laid-back and enjoyable experience for both parents and kids.

Pre-season, the coaches attend a local coaching clinic where you will meet the site clinician, receive a coaching manual and a hands-on instructional overview of all the skills taught throughout the season. Also, your clinician will be available on-site all season long to answer any questions you may have as they come up. In addition, each site offers support from assistant coaches, the site clinicians, and administrators who are always available to answer your questions.

You don’t need to be a volleyball pro; the main requirement is a positive attitude and a willingness to pitch in. It’s a chance to share laughs, cheer on the team, and enjoy a sense of satisfaction in serving your community. Volunteer as a coach to engage with your child’s interests and create fond memories that extend beyond the volleyball court.

In the words of Volunteer Coach Ryan – Simi Valley Team Blue Blessed Bison, when asked why he volunteers, “First reason, it has been a great opportunity for me to spend time with my daughters and bond with them. However, it has also been a great opportunity to assist the other players and their families by volunteering as a coach. I love watching the youth grow from the first day of practice to the last game of the year. It is rewarding to see the joy in their faces as they get a serve over or win a point off a rally. All in all, I love to coach because I love the energy of the youth and their excitement to learn and improve. As they say, the person serving is the person who receives the greatest reward. I believe this is true.”
