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?

VolleyWrite adds Predictive Assistance

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!

Why VolleyWrite?

One of our customers was the visitor and was keeping score at the table at a high school match.  When a problem occurred, the R2 asked the scorer if the correct player was serving and the scorer said, “Yes”, much to the dismay of the VolleyWrite scorer.  Look at this score sheet and see where point #10 should be on the top line but is recorded on line 2.  And if there were 12 substitutions, why are none in the working section?
