The AVCA Convention is better than ever before with several new activities and enhancements awaiting you in Kansas City.
More Small Group Interaction
The AVCA Convention is the largest gathering of volleyball coaches in the world bringing together a mix of Hall of Famers to first-year assistant coaches. What makes the convention a unique experience is being part of a large event while still being able to network and share ideas within smaller individual volleyball communities. The convention schedule includes several new or enhanced small group events this year including Regiception (new event at registration giving coaches another opportunity to network with each other), Thirty Under 30 Award Reception, International Coaches Networking Breakfast, First-Time Attendee Reception and the Match Point Reception. In addition, the convention schedule includes educational sessions and meetings targeted at high school, club, each college division, men’s/boy’s and beach to provide opportunities for learning and networking within your peer groups.
Did you ever wish you could spend an hour asking questions and picking the brain of one of the top coaches in the sport? Coaching Camps have been added to the schedule in Kansas City to provide an opportunity for small group discussion and learning. Some of the best coaches in volleyball have volunteered their time to meet with small groups of coaches in an informal setting to answer questions and talk shop.

Coaches who attend all 10 hours will earn a certificate of completion. Please note Marcio’s program is not affiliated with USA Volleyball and does not count toward BCAP certification.
