The philosophy of the AVCA is simple: encouragement of active participation from its members. The AVCA wants to hear from its coaches as it takes direction in developing policy for an ever-changing sport.
Each year more than 400 coaches and student-athletes from high school to the collegiate ranks are recognized through one of the most comprehensive single-sport awards programs available today.
Above all, the AVCA stands for service. Your national office staff takes great pride in continually seeking new and innovative ways to better serve its membership. More than 5,000 coaches agree membership in the AVCA is your professional lifeline to volleyball.
The AVCA continues to elevate coaching to a higher level by expanding the knowledge base of our members through publications, regional and national clinics and seminars, promotional initiatives and participation opportunities, all under the umbrella of the AVCA Code of Ethics.
The AVCA's comprehensive Website includes pages designed for each membership category and provides online membership and convention registration options, as well as access to online features such as:
- AVCA Product Store, with special pricing for members
- Coaches Education
- Member Directory
- Forums, including an Open Job posting
