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!
Please visit us at the VolleyWrite booth (#251) at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Thursday, December 13, Friday, December 14 and Saturday, December 15.
We are getting everything ready to make this year’s trip a success!
We look forward to meeting up with our friends and customers!
Come let us know how your season went!
We have a gift to help you get ready for Christmas! See you there!
This year marked the first time the state of Colorado used VolleyWrite to score its state tournament. The CHSAA held their tournament on Nov. 8, 9 and 20 at the Denver Coliseum. The floor had 5 courts set up (one for each division), so there was a lot going on!!
We’re looking forward to helping out again next year!
Again, the state of Ohio’s girls high school volleyball tournament went smoothly as scored by VolleyWrite!
Congrats to the winners of each division, and to all teams that made it to the state tournament!
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”!)
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!
Chris Wakefield, coach of the West End High School volleyball team in Richmond, VA, hosted a 24-team JV tournament at the Richmond Volleyball Club on Saturday, October 13th. The varsity players scored on the 8 courts using VolleyWrite, and it was a success!!
Don’t you wish your scorer was this happy scoring your matches?
Good volleyball and good scoring make for smooth sailing. It’s all good…
Redesignating a libero is easy! VolleyWrite has two ways to do it:
1. Use the Injury button. When you select the libero as the injured player, your options
When you select “Libero Redesignation”, you get a drop-down box to enter the new libero and to change the jersey (if it was necessary for the player to change to a different number to wear a contrasting jersey).
2. When you click a player on the bench (or use drag and drop action) then click on the libero (in the libero box or on the court – it doesn’t matter), VolleyWrite brings up the Redesignation dialog which allows you to change which player is the libero.
Note that after either of these options, the number of the redesignated libero will be on the bench in red, as the libero may not participate as a libero or a non-libero player for the rest of the set.
If you have any questions, please e-mail us at Info@VolleyWrite.com.
If you get a chance, stop by the Richmond Volleyball Club at 200 Karl Linn Drive in Henrico, Virginia on Saturday, October 13.
The West End Classic Girls JV Volleyball Tournament will have 24 teams playing on 8 courts, all scored with the Windows version of VolleyWrite!
Chris Wakefield is a long-time VolleyWrite scorer and we are happy to reciprocate some support! Good luck to all the teams involved!
Yesterday, I was scoring a DI match and had an odd situation. One UC player (the libero) served for 17 straight points! The good thing was that I was scoring with VolleyWrite, so I didn’t have to “borrow” any space from the another service position. I didn’t have to stress over the fact that I was running out of space for service position VI. Yay!
In the Server Verification bubble, VolleyWrite requires you to indicate whether the correct player has contacted the serve. When the correct player contacts the serve, click the YES button ON CONTACT so you don’t get behind.
I recently observed someone who chose to answer the question after the point was awarded. Unfortunately, she got behind, and recorded the score incorrectly and missed a substitution. I helped her get back on track, but it could have been easily avoided.
Also, if you are not scoring with a touch screen, please use a mouse, because for most people, that is fastest.
