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 ONCONTACT 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.
Scoring is a very important aspect of a formal volleyball match. It is somewhat of an “insurance policy” that many of the rules are followed. On many occasions, the contribution that scorers make to the facilitation of a match is underrated. Therefore, we have designated the first full week of August to recognize scorers.
We kicked off this year’s National Scorer’s Week by attending the coaches clinic presented by the Indiana High School Volleyball Coaches Association (IHSVCA)on Sunday, August 5 at Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis. It was a good clinic and many of the coaches were very interested in helping their scorers do their scoring job as efficiently as possible. Thanks to Jean Kesterson and Ronda Low for giving us the opportunity to participate! 🙂
We look forward to lots of Indiana schools using VolleyWrite to score their matches this fall. They’re gonna love it!
Congrats to all of the Ohio high schools who competed in the final post-season tournament at Wright State University’s Nutter Center, and to Ursuline Academy (D I), Padua Franciscan (D II), Versailles (D III) and New Bremen (D IV) who took home state titles! All matches were scored with VolleyWrite, and this year, as it should have been, there was no excitement except on the court!
And special thanks to the folks behind the scenes, especially at the scoring table scoring with VolleyWrite!
The OHSAA will again be using VolleyWrite to score the state final volleyball tournament this week on Thursday, November 9, Friday, November 10, and Saturday, November 11 at the Nutter Center at Wright State University.
“VolleyWrite has made it much easier to train staff on scoring matches. They’ve made it so easy my sons were scoring our high school matches when they were 11 years old. But more importantly VolleyWrite is an integral part of our 24 team charity high school boys volleyball tournament. Their tournament software is fantastic! It just works! And parents love being able to see live scoring results and standings on their phones. If you’re running a tournament, make sure you are using VolleyWrite!”
-Matt Snyder, Coach at Stow-Munroe Falls High School and co-chair of the Spike for Tykes Volleyball Tournament
What a tournament! The TSSAA again used VolleyWrite to score all of its state final tournament volleyball matches on October 17, 18 and 19 in Murfreesboro. It was ideal to use VolleyTourney to provide live scores for the matches, especially since the matches on the first two days were played on four courts in three different venues! Take a look at the results at www.VolleyTourney.com.
Congrats to the winners from all five divisions: Baylor, Webb, Brentwood, Portland and Berean Christian! That was some exciting volleyball!
Thanks to VolleyWrite, all of the excitement was on the court and not at the scoring table. If you’re not using VolleyWrite yet, download the free trial of the Windows version and check it out!
Last night, the iTunes store approved new version of the VolleyWrite app which we submitted last week. Please update your copy so you have “the latest and greatest”. We want everyone to be ready for the fall season.
