VolleyWrite – a first at the CHSAA volleyball tournament

Logo for the Colorado High School Activities AssociationThis year marked the first time the state of Colorado used VolleyWrite to score its state tournament.  The CHSAA held their tournament on Nov. 8, 9 and 20 at the Denver Coliseum.  The floor had 5 courts set up (one for each division), so there was a lot going on!!

We’re looking forward to helping out again next year!

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!

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

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!

 

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.

Why VolleyWrite? (June 2018)

We’ve all heard that humans are

creatures of habit.

But in the last half of the 20th century, humans have also become

creatures of convenience.

Why do I say that?:

1. Although I am physically capable of getting out of my car to open and close my garage door, I have a garage door opener do it for me.

2. Although I can get off my butt and walk about 4 steps to the television, you’d better believe that I use a remote control!

We already can’t imagine life without these conveniences!

Nobody whips out a pen and paper to do math any more – they use a calculator

…because it’s fast, accurate and convenient.

That same argument can be made about VolleyWrite!

Let us know what you think!

OHSAA Tournament – A VolleyWrite Success!!

Early Round Scoring with VolleyWrite

Congrats to all of the Ohio high schools who competed in the final post-season tournament at Wright State University’s Nutter Center, and to Ursuline Academy (D I), Padua Franciscan (D II), Versailles (D III) and New Bremen (D IV) who took home state titles!  All matches were scored with VolleyWrite, and this year, as it should have been, there was no excitement except on the court!

And special thanks to the folks behind the scenes, especially at the scoring table scoring with VolleyWrite!

VolleyWrite starts the ball rolling in Kentucky

There were approximately 50 coaches at the KVCA clinic at Kentucky Country Day in Louisville.  We want to make a difference for scorers in Kentucky and Michigan, like we do for scorers in Ohio, Tennessee and Massachusetts.  We hope the offer we presented is enough to get them to at least give VolleyWrite a try!  We know they’re gonna LOVE it!  :)
