Coaching Camps/Coach-the-Coach

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 are again on the schedule in Pittsburgh to provide an opportunity for small group discussion and learning. These sessions are offered by invitation only to coaches who serve on AVCA committees in appreciation for their service to the AVCA. Invitations will be sent out to committee members in October. Sign-ups for any remaining openings will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to those registered by the early-bird deadline of November 8. If you would like to volunteer to serve on an AVCA committee please contact the AVCA at members@avca.org or 859-226-4315.

Coach-the-Coach sessions are also back on the schedule in Pittsburgh. New this year are on-court Coach-the-Coach sessions that will allow participants to get hands-on training and feedback. 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. Sign-ups for Coach-the-Coach sessions will be on a first-come, first-served basis beginning in November. Those registered for the convention by the early-bird deadline of November 8 will receive an e-mail with a sign-up link for these sessions.
