Men’s/Boy’s Education Track & Programming

Men’s/Boy’s Education Track and Programming

The AVCA Virtual Convention schedule will include an education track targeted specifically for coaches of men’s and boy’s teams. Some of the top coaches in the men’s game will lead sessions on topics ranging from new drill ideas and team systems to coaching philosophy and training techniques. In addition to the educational sessions, you won’t want to miss the Men’s Coaches General Meeting on Friday afternoon to receive the most recent updates on the season and continue having conversations that help move the sport forward.

Please see the schedule below for the men’s/boys’ program during the virtual convention. Be sure to check back frequently for updates as new men’s/boy’s programming will be added to the schedule leading up to the convention. All sessions will be available during the scheduled time as well as on demand during the convention through January 14, 2021.
