One of the greatest rewards is sharing your knowledge of volleyball with the younger players!
Volunteering for the USYVL is not only easy and fun, but you also get community service hours credit and why not do it teaching something you love.
The end of the season at Santa Maria USYVL is an event not to be missed!
Headed by on of our best Site Director's, Eric, the program truly captures the spirit of USYVL.
Players and parents go to the program to learn the skills and play the game, but they leave with so much more. Eric has created a true community program in Santa Maria where player's can't wait for the season to start and players that graduate from the program come back every year to donate their time and teach the younger players.
The last day of the season is a celebration of food, music, special guests, contests and prizes for all the players and volunteers. It's a celebration of all the hard work put into the season by all the players and volunteers!
The Aliso Viejo Summer Camp opened this Monday, July 11.
For it's first year, it opened with a record number of participants!
Instructors from Cal State Northridge, Cal State East Bay and Canyon High School worked with the campers on every aspect of volleyball.

Wow, it's almost the end of January and soon we will be gearing up all the sites for the spring season! Balls will start bouncing, confirmation packets will start hitting doors and parent meeting and coaching clinics will start the excitement of the season.
Volunteering to coach a team is what many parent and family members do every year at USYVL. It's a tradition, part of the seasonal activities of thousands of families.
Come join the fun, volunteer to coach! It is easy, fun and you will get so much more out of it. Remember that the time commitment and schedule is the same as that of your child, you have the support of your volleyball instructor (Clinician) at every practice and game and you even get a cool red polo shirt and whistle!
Incorporating the toss, footwork and then contacting the ball takes a lot of skill and coordination.
USYVL players start early. On the first day of practice they jump serve.
Once they get to the higher age division, just as this player at one of the Ventura Game Days, they have perfected the Jump Serve.
At every site, we have a Clinician (Volleyball Instructor) that guides all coaches on how to set-up the volleyball drills for their team and teach the skills correctly. For those coaches that don't feel comfortable demonstrating the skills, this a great time to use your Clinician and show off how much he or she knows.
Before the season starts, your Clinician runs a two hour coaching clinic which covers volleyball skills, running practice and everything you will need to know for the season.
If that wasn't enough, we do provide you with a USYVL Curriculum Handbook that has a daily agenda for practices and games. Also, we have a video on our website that goes over everything covered in the coaching clinic.
Consider being a team coach. It's the most fun you will ever have and you get a red polo shirt and a whistle!
