VolleyWrite Scorer Challenge – Context Assist/Answer

Are you curious about the lineup from the last post?

If so, here’s the lineup sheet with the lineups for all three sets in the match to help you out.  (Yes, the team name has been removed to “protect the innocent”!)

NCAA 3 lineups

 

As it turns out, the starting players for set 1 were 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23, 3 and L1.  The starting players for set 2 were 8, 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23 and L1.  The starting players for set 3 were 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23, 3 and L1.  If you got them all correct, you’re really good!!!

Lineups like this example make scoring both fun and challenging!  :)

VolleyWrite scorers – take the challenge!!

I had the opportunity to use VolleyWrite to score a DI NCAA Women’s volleyball match recently, and I had an interesting experience.  Try your luck at reading this lineup!!   It’s quite a challenge!

Unfortunately, the lineup was submitted late and it was so hard to read!!  Oh the joys of keeping score!!

Look for the next post to get a hint and the answer!!

West End High School JV Tournament – A VolleyWrite Success!

 

20181013_104830Chris Wakefield, coach of the West End High School volleyball team in Richmond, VA, hosted a 24-team JV tournament at the Richmond Volleyball Club on Saturday, October 13th.  The varsity players scored on the 8 courts using VolleyWrite, and it was a success!!

Don’t you wish your scorer was this happy scoring your matches?

Good volleyball and good scoring make for smooth sailing.  It’s all good…

Libero Redesignation and VolleyWrite

Redesignating a libero is easy!  VolleyWrite has two ways to do it:

1. Use the Injury button.  When you select the libero as the injured player, your options

Injury Dialog to select libero

When you select “Libero Redesignation”, you get a drop-down box to enter the new libero and to change the jersey (if it was necessary for the player to change to a different number to wear a contrasting jersey).

2. When you click a player on the bench (or use drag and drop action) then click on the libero (in the libero box or on the court – it doesn’t matter), VolleyWrite brings up the Redesignation dialog which allows you to change which player is the libero.

Note that after either of these options, the number of the redesignated libero will be on the bench in red, as the libero may not participate as a libero or a non-libero player for the rest of the set.

If you have any questions, please e-mail us at Info@VolleyWrite.com.

If you get a chance, stop by the Richmond Volleyball Club at 200 Karl Linn Drive in Henrico, Virginia on Saturday, October 13.

The West End Classic Girls JV  Volleyball Tournament will have 24 teams playing on 8 courts, all scored with the Windows version of VolleyWrite!

Chris Wakefield is a long-time VolleyWrite scorer and we are happy to reciprocate some support!  Good luck to all the teams involved!

 

Why VolleyWrite? – Formatting!!

Yesterday, I was scoring a DI match and had an odd situation.  One UC player (the libero) served for 17 straight points!  The good thing was that I was scoring with VolleyWrite, so I didn’t have to “borrow” any space from the another service position.  I didn’t have to stress over the fact that I was running out of space for service position VI.  Yay!

Attention Scorers!! PLEASE download the latest version!

Attention all VolleyWrite scorers!

It has come to our attention that many schools are not downloading the latest version of VolleyWrite when they purchase a new license.

Look in the bottom of the ball on the About page and make SURE you have version 4.1.4., which is the latest version available on the Resources page of our website.  If you need to get version 4.1.4, make sure you have internet access, then go to www.VolleyWrite.com/Resources or go to www.VolleyWrite.com and select Support in the navigation bar, then click on Resources in the drop-down list.

On the Resources page, click the green VolleyWrite button to download version 4.1.4.  This happens automatically when you open VolleyWrite with internet access, but I know many people leave their PC in airplane mode to score, which we do recommend.

Thank you for scoring with VolleyWrite!

When do I answer the server verification question?

In the Server Verification bubble, VolleyWrite requires you to indicate whether the correct player has contacted the serve.  When the correct player contacts the serve, click the YES button ON CONTACT so you don’t get behind.

I recently observed someone who chose to answer the question after the point was awarded.  Unfortunately, she got behind, and recorded the score incorrectly and missed a substitution.  I helped her get back on track, but it could have been easily avoided.

Also, if you are not scoring with a touch screen, please use a mouse, because for most people, that is fastest.

It’s National Scorer’s Week!

Scoring is a very important aspect of a formal volleyball match.  It is somewhat of an “insurance policy” that many of the rules are followed.  On many occasions, the contribution that scorers make to the facilitation of a match is underrated.  Therefore, we have designated the first full week of August to recognize scorers.

We kicked off this year’s National Scorer’s Week by attending the coaches clinic presented by the Indiana High School Volleyball Coaches Association (IHSVCA)on Sunday, August 5 at Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis.  It was a good clinic and many of the coaches were very interested in helping their scorers do their scoring job as efficiently as possible.   Thanks to Jean Kesterson and Ronda Low for giving us the opportunity to participate!  :)

We look forward to lots of Indiana schools using VolleyWrite to score their matches this fall.  They’re gonna love it!
