Best Gift for a Volleyball Coach

Here’s some great tips on finding the best gifts for a volleyball coach. Affordable gifts for a volleyball coach, and a few that cost a bit more as well. Let me know if you have other volleyball coach gift ideas.

Photo Volleyball Trophy
I found a company that creates unique Volleyball Coach Gifts by printing a team photo directly onto a special trophy volleyball.

You order photo volleyballs from Balls to Go through Amazon. Here is a sample of what one team ordered.

You would need to plan ahead if you want to give this custom gift.

Volleyball Fleece Blanket


Love it Volleyball fleece blanket. Great gift.

Mini Volleyball Signed by the Team


This cute volleyball is a scaled down version of a real ball, but can easily be displayed on a shelf. Get the team to sign it in different colored Sharpies and you have a great coach gift.

Net Threat Volleyball Coach T-shirt

Creativezazz’s own Net Threat design on a black t-shirt with “Coach” on the back. How cool is that? Other designs available through Cafepress and Printfection.

Photoshop: Adding a Person to a Group Photo

Photoshop Magic Adds Missing Player Into Her Team Photo

One of our players left before the award ceremony and was not in the group photo of her team. Her coach called her and she came back to pick up her medal. I took an individual photo of her and told her I would Photoshop her into the group photo.

Here is the result.

If I had not told you I added her, you would have thought she was there.  If you look closely you will see that she does not have the same shadows from the tree leaves as the other girls. Her individual shot was not in the exact right place to get the correct lighting and shadows to match.  But I think it works pretty well.

Here are the two photos I combined.

How did I do it? To make it look real, the trick is to make a accurate selection around the person you want moved. It helps to feather the selection by one or two pixels. Another tip is to try to adjust both photos so the lighting looks similar. I adjusted the group photo lighting a bit to make it appear less shadowed.

Volleyball Summer Camps in Inland Valley, CA

Volleyball Camps this Summer in the Inland Valley.

Many USYVL parents have been talking about volleyball this summer. USYVL does not have a summer league in our area. I am trying to  put up links to Inland Valley volleyball camps that I know about. Most of the info below I cut and paste from various websites and then put the link for more info. If you know more about these or other volleyball programs, please let me know and I will post the information.

Club West Volleyball has summer volleyball camps. My daughter did a volleyball camp there the last 2 summers. I know several kids in our league did this camp. It is mornings and you get good instruction. Indoors. $150 a week. You will need knee pads. Please note that Club West is moving from La Verne to Rancho Cucamonga. The Web Site has the La Verne address on it but the flyer you download has the new address.

Glendora Youth Volleyball has a program in the fall, but I do not think they have one for the summer. Several of our players have played in Glendora as well. I do not think they have a website, but they have an email gyvforfun@aol.com.

Arsenal Volleyball has a volleyball league but I am not sure if they have a volleyball summer camp. Web site not that clear.  Let me know if you know any more about them. They play in Upland.

If you know of any other Inland Valley summer volleyball camps, please let me know.

If you go to the beach this summer, consider Laguna Beach (Main Beach) as it has sand volleyball courts. Fun to play or just to watch. Or just call some friends and play on the Claremont city court. If you have other suggestions, please share below in comments.

Don’t forget that USYVL is now taking registration for fall. You get a discount for registering online early and for volunteering as a head coach.

Creativezazz Volleyball T-shirts

Finding cute volleyball related t-shirts can be hard, so I came up with a few of my own volleyball t-shirt designs and made them available at Printfection.  I can also supply the designs to other vendors if requested. I can do custom designs if you have an idea.

Creativezazz launched a new line of t-shirt designs for volleyball enthusiasts, available through Printfection. I love this t-shirt printing company because they do quality work and have a money-back guarantee. Printfection offers many different colors.

They also offer volume discounts.  If you are interested in team shirts and need something special, just let me know.

Some of my designs are also available at Cafepress. You might check both sites to see if one has a better promotion going. Cafepress also offers my designs on other products such as water bottles and mugs. Volleyball water bottles and mugs make great gifts.

I can also work with other t-shirt vendors if you have one you like.

It’s hard to find fun t-shirts with a volleyball motif, so I will be filling the void. Here are just a few examples.

My heart t-shirt design features a volleyball swooshing down from a spike against a heart.

My spiker chicks t-shirt shows a high velocity volleyball crashing down from a spike. Show your style & your love for volleyball.

My Bump It Up shirt shows the ball flying up. Other designs available.

T-shirts are available in both girls and women’s sizes. More to come.  Let me know what you think. I’d love your suggestions for more shirts.
