Pre-Convention Seminar - ‘Training Matters - Developing and Implementing a Mental, Physical and Team Toughness Training Program to Build a Championship Level Team' presented by Mick Haley, University of Southern California, Dr. Mike Voight, Central Connecticut State University and Dr. Jill McNitt-Gray, University of Southern California.

  • With so much time focused on player selection and recruiting, volleyball coaches can lose sight of the one characteristic shared by every successful program: the ability of the staff to make players better from one season to the next. Coaches that develop an innovative and progressive training program for their players on the mental and physical parts of the game consistently achieve higher levels of success. Working with two scientists, Dr. Voight and Dr. McNitt-Gray, who have done extensive research on the sport of volleyball, USC Head Coach, Mick Haley shares the step-by-step training cycles that deliver continuous improvement.

AVCA 30 Year Anniversary- This year the AVCA celebrates being the professional association for volleyball coaches at all levels for 30 years! We will be celebrating this milestone in a variety of ways at this year's Convention and you won't want to miss out!
