When you think of Laurie McCarter, you think of Moorpark USYVL and vice versa. Laurie started her extensive volunteer career with USYVL the first year Moorpark USYVL opened as a volunteer coach. From there, it’s all a whirlwind as the program has grown to a popular youth sport under her direction. We are very honored that Laurie chose USYVL to donate her time and talents and we will dearly miss her positive outlook and excitement she brought to the sport. She is like a ray of sunshine and we look forward to seeing her staying involved through the USYVL board and coaching.

 

 We were not the only ones that noticed how special she is! The City of Moorpark honored her with a special recognition award for ten years of service to her community. Thank you Laurie and you will always be special in our hearts!

Having Fun on Final Day

 

It's a tradition in Newbury Park, that volleyball, especially USYVL, is the best sport in town.  

The kids learn how to play, have fun and make new friends. 

The last day of the season is usually one filled with "oh no, it's the last day of the season", but for these kids it's just the start of a lifelong sport!

Doing a passing warmup before the game can help loosen up the muscles, as well as, help get your mind prepared for the game.

The International Olympic Committee offered USYVL the opportunity to host two International Coaches this past week.  We had the honor of showing our USYVL program to Size Verdhan (South Africa Coach) and Inguna Minusa (Latvia Coach).  They were given a tour of the National Headquarters and an in-depth explanation of how our program works.  They also got to visit Manhattan Beach (the birth place of Beach Volleyball) and see the plaques of the past winners of the Manhattan Beach Opens.  After a busy day they finally were able to see Hermosa Beach’s USYVL program in action.  They were very impressed. Inguna explained that she has been in competitive Volleyball so long and always saw determination in the player’s eyes.  She said, “It is so nice to see the pure joy of children playing the game I love so much.” Size commented on how well thought out the program details are, from the USYVL curriculum to the custom Park & Sun net system. Size said, “When you join USYVL you can see how amazing the game of Volleyball is.”

 

A quote from our Latvia Coach:

 

 

“Pats jaukả rais vi reedeẻt bẻnnu precígảs tejas! Un too fums isdodas” – Inguna Minusa
