Men’s/Boy’s Education Track and Programming
Again this year the AVCA Convention schedule will include an education track targeted specifically for coaches of men’s and boy’s teams. Both on-court and classroom sessions will be offered led by some of the top coaches in the men’s game.
In addition to the educational sessions you won’t want to miss the Men’s Coaches General Meeting on Friday afternoon, the Men’s Team Coaches Happy Hour on Friday evening, and the Boy’s Talent Showcase on Saturday morning. The Boy’s Talent Showcase offers a recruiting event developed for men’s team college coaches attending the AVCA Convention. The event is open to uncommitted and unsigned high school and two-year college players.
