Volleyball coaches in Illinois have spoken, we need a coaches association!
Illinois High School Volleyball Coaches Association, (IHSVCA) has partnered with the AVCA to kick off the 2010-11 season with a coaches association to serve you & your program.

IHSVCA currently has openings for a Treasurer, Clinic Coordinator, Poll Coordinator, Website Manager & district representatives for each class for girls & boys; if you are interested in volunteering please email Stephanie Gooden at firstname.lastname@example.org.
