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.

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!

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!

VolleyWrite: Scorer or Score Keeper?

When we tell people that we have created VolleyWrite Volleyball Scoring Software, the response is, “Oh, so you do stats”.  When we first started, NCAA Women, the NFHS and USA Volleyball did not have the same title for the person keeping score.  “Scorekeeper” was commonly used.  Now, however, all three of these associations do refer to the person at the scoring table as the “Scorer”. So don’t get confused!  The important this is that you are scoring – with VolleyWrite!

Tennessee State Volleyball Tournament 2017 – Success!

Volleyball scorer using VolleyWriteWhat a tournament!  The TSSAA again used VolleyWrite to score all of its state final tournament volleyball matches  on October 17, 18 and 19 in Murfreesboro.  It was ideal to use VolleyTourney to provide live scores for the matches, especially since the matches on the first two days were played on four courts in three different venues!  Take a look at the results at www.VolleyTourney.com.

Congrats to the winners from all five divisions: Baylor, Webb, Brentwood, Portland and Berean Christian!  That was some exciting volleyball!

Thanks to VolleyWrite, all of the excitement was on the court and not at the scoring table.  If you’re not using VolleyWrite yet, download the free trial of the Windows version and check it out!
