Scorekeeper Darla Ober

VolleyWrite is easy to use, whether the scorekeeper is knowledgeable about volleyball or just learning. The prompts keep the scorekeeper on track and even eliminate the need for a “human” libero tracker. The screen is clear and the system is easy to navigate. The ability to go to the score sheet or reports in the middle of a set is particularly helpful. If a coach wants to check whether a player has been in the game for enough points, one click provides that info – no more counting points from the score sheet!

Vernon Boys Volleyball

I must extend my sincere thanks to your company for allowing me to participate in the beta testing. My scorekeepers had so much ease using the program that other schools were jealous. I would definitely be interested in full-time usage for next season, and have shared the information with our high school’s fall girls coach (I only coach boys in the spring).

We had an official question its use in place of a “human” libero tracker, and we were advised by the NFHS to have a paper-and-pencil libero tracker in addition to the use of your program. I found this redundant, but we complied nonetheless. We even had a printer on standby if an official requested to initial a hard copy upon set and match completion.

If I can provide any additional information regarding the software use this season, I would be more than happy to. It was an absolute pleasure. I have recommended it to every colleague that I could!

“And the Winner is…”

Thanks to all of the OHSBVA schools that participated in the survey at the end of the season!  The coach from Dublin Jerome was selected as the winner (by a highly technical pick-a-name-out-of-a-hat method).  She will choose to receive either a $25 VISA gift card or a 50% discount on a yearly license of VolleyWrite (a $50 value).

NCAA Stand on Electronic Scoring

Thanks to Rachel Seewald, we have the NCAA position on electronic scoring:

“The NCAA does not approve or endorse products for use.  … Current NCAA rules do not prevent the use of computerized scorekeeping, assuming the computerized product covers all aspects of a written score sheet and/or libero tracking sheet.”
