2013 AVCA Minority Coaches Workshop
Volleyball: Live It! Love It! Coach It!
December 18-22, 2013
*The AVCA is opening the application process for the Minority Coaches Scholarship under the assumption grant funds will be received in 2013. In the event the AVCA does not receive NCAA grant funds in 2013, all applicants will be notified.
Per NCAA Grant requirements, eligible applicants for the 2013 AVCA/Minority Coaches Scholarship must be minority women intent on pursuing volleyball coaching at an NCAA institution as a head or assistant coach. Workshop attendees do not need to currently hold such a position, but must aspire to enter the NCAA collegiate coaching field. In addition, participants must be a first-time attendee of the convention workshop. Previous workshop attendees are welcome to attend the networking event but are not eligible for the scholarship. The grant will cover the airfare and hotel expenses for ten (10) first-time workshop attendees up to $800. Registration for the workshop and convention are also covered by the grant but attendees would need to purchase match tickets if desired. Prime candidates for this program are college seniors, high school and club coaches looking for college jobs, DII, DIII, NAIA and junior college assistants willing to move to head coaching positions, and DI second assistant and graduate assistants. Minority men are a secondary target for this program.
