Learning Labs & Mentoring Huddles

Learning Labs

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.

Match Point Mentoring Huddles

Huddle up! 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.

Sign-ups for Learning Labs & Mentoring Huddles will be on a first-come, first-served basis beginning on November 10th. Those registered for the virtual convention by the early-bird deadline of November 5th will receive an e-mail with a sign-up link for these sessions.  Please note AVCA can take a maximum of (30) coaches per Learning Lab & Mentoring Huddle.

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.    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 early December if session openings remain after the link is sent out to those registered by November 5.
