2013 Coaches 4 Coaches Fundraiser:

The 2013 Coaches 4 Coaches Fundraiser was an immense success as we rose over $6,000 this year for the Coaches 4 Coaches Scholarship. 

Thank you to all those that contributed to this year's fundraiser and are helping to further careers of tomorrow's coaches!

Because we reached our goal, AVCA Executive Director, Kathy DeBoer, did in fact rappel off the tallest building in downtown Lexington, Kentucky.  Check out this video to see how she did:




Coaches 4 Coaches Scholarship:

The Coaches 4 Coaches Scholarship provides volleyball coaches the opportunity to attend their first AVCA Convention and explore the countless networking and educational opportunities that are made available to them.  This is a unique experience and one in which the recipients will develop professional skills as well as learn about becoming a better coach and leader.   

Eligible applicants must be active AVCA members who are attending their first AVCA Convention.  Applications for the scholarship are to be sent to the AVCA office and a selection committee will choose the eight recipients based upon academics, contributions to the sport of volleyball on and off the court, a professional letter of recommendation, and a personal written submission outlining their desire to attend the AVCA Annual Convention and their aspirations in coaching.
