Over two decades of working with many championship level college volleyball teams, we’ve seen what works – and what doesn’t – when it comes to building a consistent winner. And, most of it happens off the court. In this session, recruiting expert and frequent AVCA speaker Dan Tudor will go through the multiple aspects of the common essentials needed to build a winning program, and build your resume as a college volleyball coach. You will learn what you need to do differently to build a next level college volleyball program in this special ACE session.

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.
