ACE Program Information:

The AVCA has identified eight competency areas for new college head coaches that focus on building a program and culture that uses volleyball to add value to both the institution and community. 

The ACE Program was created for AVCA-member college head coaches in their first five years as a college head coach but veteran head coaches and assistant coaches are welcome to attend.. The AVCA will offer at least two 90-minute sessions at each AVCA Convention covering two of the program’s eight competencies.

After each event the AVCA will send a letter of acknowledgment to the Athletic Director of every college head coach that attends an ACE Seminar and college head coaches that complete sessions on all eight competencies will receive a certificate.
