Spike for Tykes 2017!!

S4T courtsThe Spike for Tykes volleyball tournament was held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center on Friday, May 5.  Congrats to St. Xavier (Cincinnati) for winning!!  And even more importantly, there was a lot of good volleyball and lots of fun and excitement!  – And all for a good cause!

We donated the use of our computers and used VolleyTourney.com for live scores and automatic bracket updates.  Everything worked like a charm!

Thank you to all the coaches who brought their computers/iPads and to all the VolleyWrite scorers!  You were an important element in the success of the tournament!

VolleyWrite and Windows 10

Attention VolleyWrite scorers using Windows 10:

Last night, during testing (of a new version for release) at a real match, we experienced a random “lock-up” and we gathered the info we needed to figure it out.  The problem is that Windows 10 does not always return the correct system date and time (and based on our internet search, lots of other people found this out the hard way too), and VolleyWrite uses that information when creating the match file.  We are now working on an updated version to release ASAP.

If you experience a problem, please let us know (by sending a Feedback Report), in case Windows 10 has any more “surprises”…

Thank you for scoring with VolleyWrite!

New iPad version available

VolleyWrite scorers using the iPad version

can go to the iTunes App store to download and install the latest release of VolleyWrite which was approved late last night, Wednesday, October 5.

Version 2.2.3 handles the “surprises” in iOS 10, fixes some general bugs, and improves file handling to work better with iOS and iCloud. Although you won’t see any major operational changes, if you have ever experienced a random “lock-up”, that should be a thing of the past. (And if it isn’t, please let us know!!!)

Thank you for scoring with VolleyWrite!

New Release for Windows: VolleyWrite 2.1.11

VolleyWrite is ready for the fall season! Version 2.1.11 is now available!

So what’s in it?
1. The updated Challenge Review system for NCAA Women.
2. A new way to enter lineups – the Auto buttons. Simply click the Auto button and then click on the players on the bench to fill the court in order.
3. A slightly new flow, in that you must enter which team has first serve before entering the lineups for the first set. (This should eliminate the problems that come with entering the lineups when presented in floor order.)

Give this new version of VolleyWrite a try and let us know what you think!!

Attention NCAA Volleyball Scorers!

We have finally managed to read the 2016-2017 volleyball rules for NCAA Women, and we need to clarify one of their statements.

In the Points of Emphasis, the 2016-2017 rules book says,

2. “Computerized Scorekeeping: Some of the computerized scoring processes require rosters to be entered before the match begins. Adding a player’s number to the roster after play begins is time consuming and cumbersome…”

NCAA 2016-7 Rule book coverLuckily the authors are not referring to VolleyWrite in this statement.  Since NCAA Women’s rosters are not monitored in the same manner as those for USAV, FIVB and NFHS, there is no penalty for adding a player.  When you click on/touch an Add Player button conveniently located beneath a team bench (when scoring an NCAA Women’s match), you simply have to enter the number you need, and VolleyWrite adds it to the roster and bench.  It literally only takes a couple seconds – we promise!

(We do agree wholeheartedly with their recommendation to have a paper backup until your scorer is proficient.  It just makes sense…)

We truly want you to have the best scoring experience ever!
