USYVL runs a volleyball clinic at the Sharefest Youth Development Academy!

The clinic took place Thursday, August 11 at California State University Dominguez Hills.  Over 200 middle school students had the opportunity to learn volleyball skills from some of the best volleyball players.

As a special treat, Dain Blanton, 2000 Olympic Gold Medalist of Men's Beach Volleyball, stopped by to talk to the kids, work with them in learning the sport and signed autographs!

Waitlist Procedure

1) Check to see if your program is on a Waitlist status by clicking here and selecting your state and city.  If your program says Add To Cart you can register immediately.

2) If your program says Add To Waitlist please complete your registration. No payment will be taken unless we have space to add your child to a team.

3) If we have space on the current teams or we add an additional team* you will be notified via e-mail and you will have 24 hours to make a payment.  After 24 hours, if you have not paid, your spot will be given to the next player on the Waitlist.

4)  If your program says Closed, we have reached capacity and are no longer accepting registrations.

*- Please note, priority will be given to those who are able to volunteer as Head Coach.  This will allow us to add an additional team in your child's division.  

We will do our best to place as many kids as possible and give them an opportunity to play USYVL!

When you think of Griffith Park, what do you think of first? The observatory? Famous film location? The zoo? The Greek Theatre? L.A. Equestrian Center? Well, now you can add to that the latest United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL) site.

The largest municipal park in the Unites States with urban wilderness, Griffith Park has been the site of many movies (think the classic Rebel Without a Cause), TV shows and commercials. Sometimes, it is referred to as the Los Angeles’ Central Park. However, at 4,310 acres, it is actually much larger than Central Park.

 

Taking place on Wednesdays and Saturdays from April 2 through May 31, the USYVL spring season in Griffith Park will give families in the Los Feliz area with children ages 7 to 15 easy access to a program. Registration is now available at the Los Feliz site at a special early registration rate of $130 per child. Multi-child discounts are available.  The registration fee goes to $150 on March 1, 2014. See you in the park!

USYVL Kids’ Nights/Long Beach State vs. UCLA  


Along with the fun, fitness benefits, skill and social development resulting from participation in the USYVL, the league offers great perks, including USYVL Kids’ Nights at selected college matches.  Along with free admission to the game for you, your family and friends, each match will provide an opportunity to win an “Event or Clinic with a Pro” for your site. 


How does it work? USYVL will be keeping track of the number of people each site draws to the game (not only USYVL players, but whoever else they bring). Please make sure they register on the USYVL website for the game and select your site when registering to be properly attributed to your site. The site that has the highest turnout, percentage-wise, will receive a free volleyball clinic and autograph session during this upcoming spring season from a pro.  


Watching high level volleyball players play the game is exciting and instructional. The kids really do benefit from watching good form and effort in action. Of course, if your site wins the “Event or Clinic with a Pro,” you child will have an inspiring and lasting learning experience. So be sure to bring as many people as possible for a fun-filled evening! Of course, total tickets are limited, so register early.

 

 

The Scoop: These two teams are currently ranked in the NCAA top 10, so expect a great match!   

 


Please remember to bring a form of photo ID, whether it be a student ID or driver’s license (this applies to students 7th grade and above).

When Tom Hoff called and told me about Tim, there was no question as to what to do!

We put together a package of items that a 15 year old volleyball player should have.  A Park & Sun Spectrum net system, Molten volleyball, Asics backpack and a couple of other items.

There was a wonderful reception at the Anaheim White House, where Stephanie McCormick the CEO from the Orange County/Inland Empire Make-a-Wish Foundation explained that this was the largest gift granting that the Make a wish foundation has ever done.  Not only were they sending Tim and his family, but a large number of kids and their families from the US and around the world to the London Olympics. 

The send off included a number of former Olympians; Jamie Komer, the 2008 Olympic Silver Medalist in Water Polo, Peter Vidmar, the 1984 Double Gold & Silver Medalist in Men’s Gymnastics, Pat McCormick, a 1952 & 1956 Olympic Gold Medalist.  To top it off, Reid Priddy and Clay Stanley who will be leading the Men’s National Team in  London.

The star of the day though, was Tim!  He is a very humble kid who has his sights on becoming a member of the USA Men’s National Volleyball Team.  After spending a couple hours with him I realized that he knows what is important and is willing to work hard to get there.  

We hope to see Tim at some of the USYVL sites upon his return to talk about his Olympic experience.

Becca was 8 years old when she started playing for USYVL, and learned early on that she really liked spiking the ball.  It didn't always go where she wanted it to for a few years, but it still felt so good to hit the ball HARD!  After many years of USYVL she moved on to club volleyball, played all through high school, and is now finishing up her senior year at Hendrix College, in Conway, Arkansas.  She was a starting outside hitter all four years at this NCAA Division III school, where she set the record for All time Career Kills and was second in All Time Career Attempts and Most Kills in a Season.  Becca still loves playing volleyball, and also loves coaching volleyball.   Look for her at USYVL summer camps in the near future!
