We are both pleased and excited to announce the opening of a new advanced skills development league. The Advanced Juniors Program’s emphasis on developing fundamental volleyball skills on par with what is taught at the Club level – at a fraction of the cost - is the next step in the USYVL’s mission to develop the sport of volleyball from the ground up. The Advanced Juniors Program’s curriculum is designed to bridge the gap between USYVL’s instructional league and high school/Club volleyball in a fun, safe, supervised environment. Players are encouraged to be competitive while maintaining good sportsmanship. Space is open to intermediate and experienced players ages 11-16.

As another successful spring season winds down for the United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL), a big “thank you” is due to the many volunteers who made it happen for the kids. The volunteer crew is essential to the success of the league, keeping the league affordable while, at the same time, offering a family atmosphere, since so many family members are involved. We’re grateful for the time donated by each and every volunteer this past season. Your efforts created a terrific experience for the children participating in USYVL.  

 

If you haven’t volunteered in the past, and have a child participating in the future, you are certainly encouraged to volunteer. The guidelines to volunteer are available on the USYVL website.  

 

In addition to donating time, monetary donations derived from the charity and goodwill of many individual donors, along with corporate sponsors, assist the USYVL in achieving its mission to provide every child an opportunity to learn the sport of volleyball in a fun, safe, and supervised environment. Donations improve opportunities for children in the league in two ways. First, children with a desire to play in the league, but are faced with verified financial need, are offered assistance. Since the inception of the league, thanks to donations, no child has ever been turned down from participating in the league based on financial circumstances. Second, donations fund important USYVL education and training programs, which benefit all children involved with USYVL.   

 

If you are in a position to be able to make a monetary donation, we encourage you to join our board members in donating $25, $50, $100, or any amount you can comfortably give to USYVL. Each donation, no matter the amount, makes a difference! 

 

The opportunities for health, fitness, self-esteem building and, of course, learning the skills of volleyball, offered through the USYVL continue. Thank you for being part of it.

Are you the type that likes to take a leadership role?  Or are you looking to ensure the next generation of volleyball players has a solid fundamental baseIf so, the United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL) has a couple great opportunities for you.  For the upcoming Spring 2014 Season, USYVL is seeking Site Directors and Clinicians.  

The basic responsibilities of the Site Director include oversight of the players and volunteers at your community site. This person is organized, efficient and works well with people, and has a huge impact on the site.  Site directors recruit, organize and maintain the volunteer staff, assign equipment, assign the First Aid Administrator, handle registration, ensure forms are complete and oversee the parent meeting that takes place at the beginning of the season, and serve as the primary liaison between the site and USYVL National Office.  The job runs for the entire 8 weeks of the program, with a modicum of work before and after the season.  Typically, the Site Director position requires approximately 4 hours of time per week.  USYVL offers excellent training and a complete job description.  Be a leader!

Best of all, it is fun! Clinicians teach the skills to volunteer coaches through a 2-hour pre-season coaching clinic, and demonstrate skills during practice days.  Clinicians also oversee game days and tournaments, and participate in the pre-season parent meeting.

Through a 3-hour pre-season training meeting, a complete written curriculum for the 8-week program, and support from the USYVL National Office, Clinicians are well prepared for their role.  Because of the high level coaching responsibility, this person must be dependable and have experience playing and/or coaching volleyball at the high school, club, college or higher level. The time commitment is approximately 4 hours per week.  A stipend is available for the Clinician position.

#givingtuesday

The desire to give, to help, resides in the core of all human beings. We see it in the wake of natural disasters around the world, which give rise to inspired charity efforts and an outpouring of support from people often thousands of miles away. The holiday season is a time for giving and charity not inspired by disaster, but by giving to those who have so little in a time when every little bit counts.

Tuesday, December 3 marks the second annual #GivingTuesday, which arose in 2012 as an offshoot of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, two of the biggest shopping days of the year. #GivingTuesday encourages communities to get involved with nonprofit organizations by donating money and volunteering.

#GivingTuesday is a day in which Americans are encouraged to give to non-profit organizations or volunteer their time to other community organizations. In its inaugural year, for-profit companies stepped in and encouraged their employees to get involved. In some cases, huge giving efforts were funded by for-profit companies. Analysts estimate nearly $10 million was donated in #GivingTuesday’s inaugural year.

Behind the all of the laughter, smiles, digging, setting, and spiking, the United States Youth Volleyball League’s (USYVL) mission to provide every child an opportunity to learn the sport of volleyball in a fun, safe, and supervised environment thrives on the charity and good will of corporations, individual donors, and everyday people.

Give a child in need an opportunity this #GivingTuesday by donating $25, $50, $100, or any amount you can comfortably give. Each donation, no matter the amount, goes a long way to ensuring that those in need have the same opportunities as those of privilege.

With so many of the real reasons for the holiday season shrouded amidst the hustle and bustle of a shopping season that begins earlier each year, many families strive for the restoration of the spirit of family, togetherness, and good will.  #GivingTuesday is the perfect way to embrace these values. 

Donors supporting USYVL this year can be assured that their gift will make a difference for a child  through healthy activity, building of self esteem and teamwork. 

#GivingTuesday donations can be made on the USYVL website at www.usyvl.org. Share your support on Twitter and Facebook by using hashtags for #GivingTuesday and #USYVL. Your support is very much appreciated this holiday season.

Footwear and apparel manufacturer ASICS has been a longtime sponsor of the United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL).  You likely have noticed the ASICS logo on USYVL uniforms, as well as Coach’s shirts and Clinician uniforms.  It is a symbol of commitment to youth sports, particularly volleyball in the United States. 

 

ASICS, as a company, has been around for over 60 years.  Do you know what the ASICS acronym stands for?  Here is the answer!  Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka , who founded the company as Onitsuka Co., Ltd. In 1949, decided on the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which when translated expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body."  So, now you know. ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness.

 

ASICS not only supports the efforts of USYVL, but also professional athletes, including pro volleyball player Kaitlin Sather Nielsen, who visited the Torrance, CA sites during this past season.  Of course, you see many volleyball players wearing ASICS famous GEL Cushioning System. 

 

“We are very grateful for the support that ASICS has provided to the league,” said Randy Sapoznik, USYVL Executive Director.

With the end of the year coming up quickly, you may be thinking of attaining goals you have set, or ways you can help your community, your children, and those less fortunate.  United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL), a nonprofit 501 (c) 3, has taught volleyball and important life skills to over 100,000 children, and your donation can help that next child in need of financial aid, offering an opportunity to develop essential teamwork skills, all while building self-esteem.  Yes, USYVL impacts your children directly – and, with further donations, will continue to impact others across the nation.  So, be part of the USYVL movement, and share what you can.  Your donations, whether personal or from your company, are tax deductable, and will continue the good work that happens every season with USYVL.

Keep kids active, engaged in positive activity, and learning one of the world’s great sports – one that actually was invented in the USA. 

The USYVL has seen many times over the quantifiable impact that participation in the league delivers.  This impact is magnified several fold for underprivileged children when they are exposed to USYVL – often providing their first youth sports experience.  Their smiles speak volumes, the outward emotion of the inner reality that these kids feel truly part of something. 

No amount is too small. Leave a legacy by donating whatever amount you can comfortably donate, and know your contribution will continue to drive positive action for children across the country.  Let’s sport for it… volleyball!

This Saturday, October 26, fitness guru and celebrity trainer extraordinaire Dion Jackson will be visiting the Torrance, California USYVL locations with pro beach volleyball players Traci Weamer, Kaitlin Sather-Nielsen and Nils Nielsen to warm-up the kids.  Dion and the pros will serve up plenty of excitement when they visit the Sur La Brea Park location at 10 a.m., followed by McMaster Park in Torrance at approximately 11 a.m., before heading to the Veggie Grill in Torrance (2355 Pacific Coast Highway) with the pros to sign autographs. 

 

Dion has been a “go-to” trainer for numerous celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez, Jim Carrey, Rob Lowe, Nia Long and other big names.  You may have seen him at other USYVL events, sharing his enthusiasm for fitness.

 

Pro beach volleyball player Traci Weamer is originally from Upland, California, and played college volleyball at Concordia University.  In 2011, Weamer won a made-for-CBS "Best of the Beach" event for collegians with Jane Chafeh.     

Kaitlin Sather-Nielsen is a professional beach volleyball player who competes domestically and internationally. Currently, she is a member of the Elite USA Beach National Team and the assistant coach for the UCLA Women's Sand Volleyball Team. Kaitlin attended UCLA, where she was an outside hitter on the indoor volleyball team.

Look for more pro appearances at USYVL sites in the near future.
