This release contains a few minor changes:
- The NAIA rule set was revised.
- The NFHS rule set was changed to match the new rule for uniform numbers.
- Other bug fixes
As a reminder, all new licenses must be installed with the new software! If you have not installed a new version since last fall, you must do so now!
Personally, I was a little skeptical when they told us several years ago that we would be moving to a digital scoring program. Man was I wrong!! Personally, I think it is great. [VolleyWrite] simply keeps you from missing things before you get three rotations ahead. And as a programmer, I can appreciate the work that goes into creating such an application. Well done!

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!
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?
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!
This is available now in the Windows version and should be part of the iPad version by mid-March.
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?

Squeeze even more helpful information out of your score sheet by using the Sideout Efficiency Report to improve your defense. The Sideout Efficiency key is a one-time fee of $9.99 and is now available on our Pricing page. You can examine a sample on the Sideout Efficiency page. VolleyWrite just made your coaching job even easier!
As of July 1, VolleyWrite offerings are more similarly priced. You can purchase a season license for Windows or the iPad for $49.99, a full year license for $89.99, and a week license for $4.99. Additional activations of Windows keys are still $10.
Our Windows trial is now for one week, and it is still free. The initial one-week iPad app is $1.99 (due to Apple’s rules).
Congrats to Elder High School in Cincinnati and Archbishop Alter High School in Dayton for winning the Ohio high school boys Division I and Division II titles, respectively over Memorial Day weekend! The state finals went very smoothly! They were so much fun! There was a lot of good volleyball happening in the Buckeye state!
