The AVCA is working to make this year's convention the biggest and best yet. You will find several new activities in Kansas City including:
AVCA Networking Luncheon & Bowling Tournament
Kick-off your convention week with food, bowling and fun at the AVCA Networking Luncheon & Bowling Tournament. This event will be held from Noon - 3 p.m. on Wednesday, December 15 at Lucky Strike Lanes in the Kansas City Power & Light District. Enjoy an all-you-can eat buffet lunch and all-you-can drink beer, wine and soft drinks from Noon - 1 p.m. Then showcase your bowling skills in the inaugural AVCA Bowling Tournament. Participants can choose to form their own team or be placed on a team by the AVCA. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team and the person with the highest and lowest score.
AVCA Mentoring Program
The AVCA is excited to launch its new Coaches Mentoring Program in August 2010. This program has been developed to allow experienced coaches to share their knowledge and talents with fellow coaches in the volleyball community. The AVCA hopes to present mentees with an opportunity for career and personal growth while offering mentors an outlet through which to provide guidance.
For those program participants attending the AVCA Annual Convention, the AVCA will host a Coaches Mentoring Program Reception from 7:15 - 8 p.m. on Wednesday, December 15th. This event will allow the mentors and mentees a chance to meet face-to-face early during convention week. In addition, the AVCA encourages the mentee to "shadow" the mentor for a day during convention as well as join them for various convention events such as banquets or NCAA matches. Additional information on the AVCA Coaches Mentoring Program including program guidelines and sign-up applications can be found in the "Education/Resources" section of the AVCA Web site.
