Whether you coach at the college, high school or club level the AVCA Convention offers educational sessions that are sure to make you a better coach and leader. The schedule includes more than 90 on-court, classroom and beach sessions with topics ranging from coaching philosophy and in-match strategy to injury prevention and new drill ideas. Again this year all sessions will be labeled as basic, intermediate or advanced to help you better target the presentations of interest to you. Can’t decide which session to attend in a particular time block? The seminar schedule will also include a listing of which presentations are being audio or video recorded so you will know which sessions you can see and hear at a later time.
Don’t miss the Pre-Convention Seminar titled “Lessons Learned in the Olympic Games – International Insights to Improve Team Play and Player Performance.” USAV Men’s Team Head Coach John Speraw, Netherlands Women’s Team Head Coach Giovanni Guidetti and USAV Women’s Team Assistant Coach Tom Black will share insights from Rio and discuss how ideas gathered from international play can benefit your team. Also, make plans to attend the Opening Session, Super Session and Closing Session to learn from some of the best coaches and speakers in the country.
New to the schedule this year is an education track for coaches of men’s and boy’s teams. See the “Men’s/Boy’s Education Track” link for more information.
