The AVCA Minority Coaches Committee is supplied a grant by the NCAA that allows them to conduct several different clinics throughout the country, providing a unique opportunity for minority coaches to receive instruction and training from the top NCAA coaches on how to become a better coach and leader. All of the clinics offered participants learning opportunities in individual skill instruction as well as career and professional development opportunities in coaching. All participants of the clinics and workshops are granted access to bond, network, grow and learn from coaches within the ranks of the NCAA, an opportunity they may have not received otherwise.
Each year at the AVCA Convention, the committee offers scholarships to a group of minority coaches who are looking to pursue a head coaching position at the NCAA level.
The AVCA Minority Coaches Committee's grant application for 2014-15 has been submitted to the NCAA and is currently under review. Scholarship information for the 2014 AVCA Annual Convention in Oklahoma City will be available once the NCAA notifies the AVCA of the status of their grant application.
