Learning Labs/Mentoring Huddles

Learning Labs are small group education sessions led by some of the top coaches in volleyball that allow participants to ask directed questions and dig deeper into a specific topic. Learning Labs are designed to be informal discussions between the topic expert and attendees to share insights, find solutions to problems, and talk shop. Sign-ups for Learning Labs will be on a first-come, first-served basis beginning in November. Those registered for the convention by the early-bird deadline of November 5 will receive an e-mail with a sign-up link for these sessions the week of November 8th. Virtual convention attendees may participate in any of the Learning Labs included on the virtual convention schedule. No sign-up is required for these sessions.    

Match Point Mentoring Huddles provide the opportunity for veteran coaches and less experienced coaches to meet in small groups and share ideas for personal and professional growth. Each one-hour Huddle will offer mentees the chance to visit with three different veteran coaches for 20-minutes each to gain insight and learn about the sport from multiple perspectives.

Match Point Mentoring Huddles will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis beginning in November. Those registered by the early-bird deadline of November 5 will receive an e-mail with a sign-up link for the Huddles the week of November 8th.

Coaches must sign-up in advance (virtual attendees excluded) in order to keep the Learning Labs and Mentoring Huddles to a limited capacity and maintain the small group format. Please contact Allison Ivetic at allison.ivetic@avca.org for more information.

The sign-up link for Learnings Labs and Mentoring Huddles will be posted here in November if session openings remain after the link is sent out to those registered by November 5.
