Heather Sawyer of the MIVCA invited us to their coaches clinic on Friday, April 21 and Saturday, April 22. Thank you to all who stopped by our booth to see what VolleyWrite can do for you!
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!!
Wildfire Sports LLC has just released version 2.0.11 of VolleyWrite!
VolleyWrite now supports the FIVB substitution rules and scoring notation. Some other enhancements to the Predictive Assistance feature have been added as well.
So go to the Resources page and check out the latest release notes while you download the “latest and greatest”. (And it’s a free upgrade, so what’s not to like?)
Version 1.10 for the iPad has been approved for sale by the iTunes store, so be sure to go to the App store and download the latest version. This is a free upgrade that fixes the problem with a bad prediction showing up after set 1. If the user accepted the bad prediction, the internal model of the court was confused and things spiraled downward.
Predictive assistance is a cool and convenient feature (especially now that this bug is fixed), but you must still make sure that the players involved are correct!
If you have any questions, please contact us at Info@VolleyWrite.com.
Now you can get predictive assistance for higher level matches with VolleyWrite for WIndows and VolleyWrite’s iPad version!! Apple released iPad version 1.9.11 yesterday, Monday, March 7, 2016.
VolleyWrite’s predictions are triggered by a loss of rally, and they help you with both substitutions and libero replacements for positions 1 (Right Back) and 4 (Left Front), which is where most of these actions occur. In the first rotation of the match, VolleyWrite “learns” the personnel changes to help you with subsequent rotations in the match – not just in that set.
You can ignore the prediction bubble and it will disappear when you verify the server. You can enter the action as you normally would and the bubble will also disappear. Of course, if you answer, “Yes” to the bubble, VolleyWrite does the action and the bubble also disappears.
Predictive Assistance is enabled on the Customization page of the Rules tab.
Give it a try and let us know what you think!
So it turns out that scoring is important to the sport of volleyball. Scoring is an integral part of officiating because it helps to ensure the adherence to substitution and service/rotation rules, and the proper application of penalties. Many coaches stew about points lost to ball handling calls when they also lost a point due to a libero serving in two different service positions or the wrong player serving. And illegal libero replacements happen more often than you think! (or so we have found).
So give scoring the importance it is due, and help make your scorer’s job easier by using VolleyWrite!
Now you can be “ahead of the game”!
VolleyWrite now offers predictive assistance for scorers of high-level matches. When there is a side-out, VolleyWrite looks through the match to see if any actions occurred in positions 1 and 4 on both sides of the court and alerts you to the action. (See the libero replacement suggestion on the left and the sub suggestion on the right.) You can ignore the suggestion bubble if you want, or enter the action manually like you normally would.
Control freaks are gonna love it!
This is available now in the Windows version and should be part of the iPad version by mid-March.
The NVVA is hosting a two-day six court tournament this Saturday and Sunday, January 9 & 10.
The libero trackers will be using the iPad version of VolleyWrite!
We are so excited to be able to assist with these club volleyball matches!
Congrats to Jacky Pence of Rudder High School in Bryan, Texas!
While at the AVCA Convention here in Omaha, NE, Jacky participated in the drawing for a Lenovo IdeaPad 300 tablet and won! Jacky also received a one-year license for VolleyWrite to use on her tablet.
Good luck to your team next season! Thank you for using VolleyWrite!
