VolleyWrite saves space!

Moeller High School’s JV tournament took place on Saturday, May 7, with two courts in Moeller’s gym and two courts in the gym at All Saints school.  Because the space was tight at All Saints, the scoring table was along a back wall at the end of the courts, so it could be used by both courts.  This is not optimal, so the students who were keeping score just moved chairs near the standards so they could communicate to the R2.  It worked MUCH BETTER!!!

VolleyWrite saves space!

The parents at Moeller are enthusiastic about their roles!  This line judge has an official shirt:

VolleyWrite was used to score all the matches on all four courts.  Better yet, VolleyWrite was connected to www.VolleyTourney.com for live score updates and automatic bracket progression.  The fans loved being able to check what was in store for their team and keep up with the action on the other courts.

Novice Scorer Saves the Day

Just wanted to share a story with you:

A View from the stand on Court 2We 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!
