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 “Attacking with Defense – Creating Efficient Transition Attack with Effective Defensive Systems.” USA Volleyball Women’s Team Assistant Coach Luka Slabe will discuss defensive systems and strategies on how to implement those systems to score more points in transition attack. Also, make plans to attend the Opening Session led by Mick Haley, the Super Session with a Why We Win panel and Semifinal Match Analysis, and the Closing Session with speaker John Dunning.
New to the schedule this year is a six-hour education track for strength & conditioning coaches that will take place on Saturday as well as an education track for Director of Volleyball Operations staff on Friday. See the “Strength & Conditioning” and “DOVO” tabs for more information.
Please see the Seminars At-A-Glance page for details on specific speakers and topics. This schedule will be updated frequently as the convention approaches so check back often for the most recent information.
