Are you looking for a way to make the most your child’s time, and your time, during a United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL) season? Consider coaching. It is probably much easier than you think. You will, undoubtedly, make meaningful contributions with the time you spend teaching teamwork and volleyball skills to youth in your area. Better yet, your child will be thrilled, and you’ll develop a wonderful, long-lasting rapport with the other children on your team.
Since each site has a Clinician (consider this person the coach-in-chief), coaches are tasked with executing a pre-prepared lesson plan that is spearheaded by the Clinician. You’ll have tools before you hit the court in the form of an easy-to-read coaching manual, and on-site training given by your Clinician. Truly, it makes the job very easy. Opportunities exist for both Head Coach and Assistant Coach roles. Interested? Be sure to reach out to your Site Director.
Ramon Calderon was a passionate volleyball enthusiast and evangelist. He was a great friend to us here at USYVL and his untimely passing in 2012 was a tremendous blow to anyone who loved him and the game he loved. We're proud to help keep his legacy alive by taking part in the annual Ramon Calderon Cup. Please join us for this fantastic fundraiser and fabulous day at Zuma Beach in honor of a man who gave so much of himself to volleyball and to others. Check out Ramon's story and all the other great content on the event's website at http://firstlastgame.org/index.html.

USYVL video goes viral!
You never quite know what will capture the attention of volleyball players and parents on the internet these days. If you're playing the percentages, cats, exceptional rallies and bodily harm should be at the top of your list when it comes to creating sharable content. But we at USYVL tried a different approach. Our thirty-second video entitled #powerofpepper featured a dad and his daughter bumping a ball back and forth in their front yard as subtitles reminded viewers to play volleyball with their children. While it wasn't humorous or outrageous, it struck a chord with people across America. In the five days since it was posted to USYVL social media accounts, the video reached over 138,000 people, was viewed nearly 55,000 times and shared 600 times. "Likes," comments and shares poured in from viewers who identified with the message and, in some cases, interpreted it as a welcome sign of the changing seasons and warmer weather ahead. Whatever drew people to our video, we're glad they enjoyed and shared it with their friends. We're always trying to find new ways to capture the USYVL spirit in our communication and encourage kids to learn the game of volleyball in a fun, safe and positive environment. That type of message doesn't always compete favorably with the off-the-wall content "going viral" on the web but, for one day at least, it did.
