Suggestions for future

· * Need reasons to drive coaches to the website instead going to website to get news

· * Have live chats with tops coaches online

· * Publicize coaches clinics being held - there was a discussion about sanctioning the clinics if an AVCA member was hosting

· * Be a "keeper of the calendar" in coaching educational events

· * Publicize a list of CAP certified coaches somewhere

· * List more products in the Volleyball Store (AVCA members publishing)

· * Record an actual practice of a top program and put it online

· * Promote good books for coaches to read - a book review each month

· * Clarify the roles of USA Volleyball and the AVCA in educating coaches

· * Should AVCA run the CAP program?

· * Request more CAP III clinics be held around the country

· * Serve the JDVA (something like 20% of their funds collected will be going to coaches education)

Next conference call will be TBD.
