2011 marks the 175th anniversary of the battle of the Alamo making San Antonio the perfect destination for the AVCA to celebrate this milestone! Incorporated as a private non-profit educational corporation in 1981, the original members of the Collegiate Volleyball Coaches Association (CVCA) were all intercollegiate coaches who banned together to unite this particular coaching body. In 1986 at the San Francisco convention, the name of the association was changed to reflect the growing high school and club constituencies. The American Volleyball Coaches Association was born with the intent of responding to and serving all volleyball coaches. Today, the AVCA serves over 5,200 members. Join us in celebrating 30 years of being the leader in volleyball coaching education!
