Since VolleyWrite supports all US volleyball, it was used at Elder High School on April 2 for their freshman tournament. The JV team kept score with ease! You can see the results in bracket form at http://www.volleytourney.com/Tournament/Schedule/35. VolleyWrite updated the web site with live scores and filled the brackets automatically. It was beautiful! (And congrats to the Moeller freshman team who won the tourney.)
Rob Slavin of the MGVCA invited us to their annual coaches clinic on March 5, 2016, and we went!
The coaches totally ROCK in Massachusetts! They were so very nice and asked all the right questions about VolleyWrite.
Anyone who doesn’t remember the coupon code can contact us at Info@VolleyWrite.com.
Good luck to all with your upcoming season!
On February 20, 2016, Borderline Volleyball Club in Oxford, Ohio used VolleyWrite in conjunction with Wildfire Sports LLC’s tournament management website.
It was a bit of a surprise for the participating teams, but the girls did very well with the quick explanation they received before their matches.
One 12-year-old scorer told her mom that she loved electronic scoring and doesn’t want to score on paper again! (That’s exactly what we want to hear!)
You can see the results on the Borderline dashboard at VolleyTourney.com.
It was really cool for the parents to look at the screen in the concession area and watch as the live scores were updated and the brackets filled.

Just wanted to share a story with you:
We were at the NVVA in Virginia earlier this year. I noticed the up ref getting off the stand during a match so I went over to see if there was a problem with VolleyWrite. The situation was that the coach of the winning team had tried to sub a player into the deciding set of the match, but that player had been exceptionally substituted in the second set. VolleyWrite would not allow the player onto the court. The player using VolleyWrite was actually the libero tracker, and she informed the down ref that the sub was illegal. Neither the adult at the table nor the coach of the team at fault knew the rule, and had insisted that VolleyWrite was wrong. Although her heart was pounding, the tracker stood her ground and made sure the points were removed (four points were scored while she was arguing her point) and the court positions straightened out. She did a great job!
Thanks to Emi Vishoot, Lucas Tuggle and Mike Chandler for the opportunity to train some of the SWOBO scorers at Xavier University to use VolleyWrite on Sunday, August 16! As much as we enjoyed doing the scorekeeping ourselves, it is nice to have others to “take the helm” while we do the libero tracking. Thank you for your support!
