Misty May & Kerri Walsh Volleyball

 

We would like to thank everyone who came out to this first-time event! Friday through Sunday, July 25-27, was a huge hit with kids, parents, and players!

 

The USYVL booth was in constant action with USYVL beach balls to every visitor that came by the booth. For our USYVL kids, we had a special shirt which read, "Look Who Signed My USYVL Tee!" with space underneath for every AVP professional to autograph. We received lots of great comments from the pros about how cool the shirt was for the kids to have and for the players to sign.

 


 

 

Face-painting was a huge hit with the kids. USYVL Program Coordinator, Nancy Ciullo used her artistic skills to paint volleyballs, USA flags, and many more fun things on kids' faces and arms. She was so good, we thought the line of kids would never end! Among our favorite Nancy-illustrations were the Brazilian and Mexican flags, a vanilla cupcake, and a tiger.

 

On Saturday, two-time Gold Medalist Misty May stopped by the USYVL booth for an autograph session and, after winning the tournament, took a group picture with all the USYVL kids and their cool autograph shirts! Not only is she the #1 player in the world, but she's a great person too. Thank you, Misty!

Recently we invited AVP pro beach volleyball players Braidy Halverson and John Mayer to talk about their careers as professionals and to demonstrate their skills to the kids on game day. John taught the kids some setting techniques while Braidy stole the show with his spiking ability.

 

It was great to see the pros in action and we look forward to more pros coming out and showing the kids their skills! Thanks, John and Braidy!

USA Men’s Volleyball Visits USYVL

The London Olympics are just around the corner and this was a perfect opportunity for two of the USA Men’s National Volleyball Team members to visit USYVL.

With the Norceca Men’s Qualifier happening the week of May 7 at the Long Beach State Pyramid, Will Price and Antwain Aguillard took the opportunity to visit a USYVL site.  They did some demos and spent time on the court with the kids on a sunny Wednesday afternoon on May 2.

It was a fabulous experience, not only for the kids but for the coaches and parents!

Will Price is a former Penn State player who was the 2009 – AVCA First Team All-American ... NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team.

Antwain Aguillard was named the 2010 All-MPSF Third-Team and led the team in blocks.

We wish the USA Men’s Volleyball Team much success in the Olympics!

Dain Blanton, Olympic Gold Medalist, addressed over 200 clinic participants about the importance of education in his life and the path to success in volleyball.

Clinic participants at the 2011 Sharefest had the opportunity to hear Dain’s story, ask questions and even hold the gold medal! 

It was exciting for the kids to hear how he and his partner battled the Brazilian team for the gold medal and how all of that contributed to his career as a sportscaster and motivational speaker.

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!
