The 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!
Earlier this week, the iTunes App store approved the latest release of VolleyWrite for the iPad (3.1), and today we have released the latest version of VolleyWrite for WIndows (version 3.1.13) on our website. These versions include the new lineup entry into lineup diagrams matching what the coaches submit, which we think will eliminate lineup problems for your matches. (Yay!)
We want you to have the best scoring experience ever!
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.)
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.
Good morning! I just want to say that the Volley Write program has been absolutely amazing with keeping our score sheets. We trained a student to do this in less that 15 minutes and while there was a couple of hiccups they quickly caught up to speed. So thank you for the trial offer and we will be a Volley Write school for as long as I am coaching.
K. White, Coach
Palo Verde High School
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!
Thank you Monique Huffman, secretary of the Kettering Volleyball Association, for allowing us to present VolleyWrite Volleyball Scoring Software to the incoming officials at Springboro High School on Saturday, August 8th! Having scorers in the crowd was very beneficial and we look forward to serving the schools in your area!
We really appreciate the efforts of Marsha Goodwin and Marie Crowe to set up our VolleyWrite presentation for the Chattanooga area. It was a lot of fun and there were lots of good questions. We are honored to support volleyball in Tennessee, and we are looking forward to the state tournament in October!!
