UC Irvine Players Sign Autographs for USYVL Kids
What a great opportunity to watch high level volleyball and be able to talk to the players. That was what happened at the UC Irvine International Volleyball Tournament.
USYVL players from Orange County sites had their game day at UC Irvine's Crawford Field. Prior to the start of their games, they received a special treat from the UC Irvine Men's Volleyball Team.
The team played a short exhibition game and then signed autographs for the kids. Thank you to UC Irvine and David Kniffin for making this a special day for USYVL!
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.
The USYVL is all about good sportsmanship by learning and playing volleyball in a fun, safe, supervised environment. "Every Child Plays" and is automatically a starter when they sign up to play in the USYVL. USYVL Instructors and coaches teach the proper volleyball skills and teamwork.

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.

So, your child is playing volleyball in the United States Youth Volleyball League (USYVL), and you’ll be there for every practice and game, right? Well, there is no better way to show support than to actually participate in the league in one of the many volunteer positions. Trust us, your kids will love it! You will too! Of course, the team at USYVL will be forever grateful, since it is through volunteer efforts that the league remains affordable (and doesn’t include the need for personal fundraising like many youth sports programs do).
Here are the options:
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!
