VolleyWrite Software Update – Please read!

The security settings for VolleyWrite.com are in the process of being upgraded, requiring a new release of VolleyWrite.

After January 18, when you open VolleyWrite and your computer has internet access, you will be notified that a new version is available. You will have two options:
1. You can ignore that message and continue to score with the version on your computer until your current license expires, or
2. You can allow the new version to download.  NOTE: In this special case, you will have to enter a new key when the new version is installed. (Normally the key transfers to subsequent versions without the need for re-installation.)
Before you install the new version, if you would like a key for the remainder of your license, please contact me at Info@VolleyWrite.com. Once you have the new key, you can install the latest software and enter the new key. Then you can score as you normally do.  (The activation date for your key is in my database along with the duration of the license…)
I apologize for this inconvenience! As an internet-based business, I have to do everything I can to secure my customers’ data and the products they purchase. I really appreciate your patience and understanding!

 

Thank you for scoring with VolleyWrite!

VolleyWrite Scorer Challenge – Context Assist/Answer

Are you curious about the lineup from the last post?

If so, here’s the lineup sheet with the lineups for all three sets in the match to help you out.  (Yes, the team name has been removed to “protect the innocent”!)

NCAA 3 lineups

 

As it turns out, the starting players for set 1 were 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23, 3 and L1.  The starting players for set 2 were 8, 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23 and L1.  The starting players for set 3 were 25, 2c, 16, 18, 23, 3 and L1.  If you got them all correct, you’re really good!!!

Lineups like this example make scoring both fun and challenging!  🙂

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!!

Why VolleyWrite? Let me show you…

Everyone has insurance for the things they value: their lives, their homes, their cars, etc.  VolleyWrite is a type of insurance for scoring volleyball matches.

When things go wrong at a volleyball match, the officials use the score sheet to determine the corrective action.

When there’s very little information on the score sheet, it’s hard for the officials to apply the rules to strange situations.

Which of these score sheets tells you for sure how many times the libero served or when the substitutions took place?

Don’t you want VolleyWrite for all your matches?

Mike Chandler (shown below on the right) was the official scorer and did a great job!  (There was only one administrative yellow card and one improper server, so nothing too exciting…)
