Join the AVCA in Columbus to celebrate 40 years of serving volleyball coaches. The AVCA was formed in 1981 by Terry Liskevych and Andy Banachowski primarily as an advocacy group for coaches. While the faces have changed and services have been expanded over the years, the core values and dedication to serving volleyball coaches and the volleyball community remains the same. The AVCA will be celebrating its 40th birthday throughout convention week and all convention attendees are invited to the party. Celebration activities planned include:
- 40th Anniversary Booth in Volleyball Marketplace showcasing videos, photos, and mementos of AVCA coaches and volleyball history
- The AVCA Honors & 40th Anniversary Celebration presented by Jostens (12:30 – 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 16) – Make plans to attend the banquet for a formal recognition of those who started the AVCA, brief history of where we came from, and a look forward toward the future.
- AVCA 40th Anniversary Party (6:15 – 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 17) – Celebrate AVCA’s 40th Anniversary ‘80s style as we share funny stories, play games, reminisce over music from the past four decades and finish with a toast as we look forward to the next 40 years. The party will be held in AVCA Theater during the Friday Night Party & Coaches Tournament.
