                        a.  No CCCAA reps on the call.


V. New Committee Members - Ashley will reach out to invite Regina and Marci to be on our March call.

A.  Regina Mannix (Scottsdale Community College) - Chair of the NJCAA volleyball coaches committee

            B.  Marci Henry - taking over as the DI NJCAA representative to the National Championships

C.  The current committee is interested in expanding the group.  Please send all requests for new committee members to Ashley and she will extend an invitation to them.  Committee members must be active AVCA members.  Current suggestions: Mary Andrew (Florida State College at Jacksonville)


VI.  2010 Committee Action Items

            A.  Publications

a.  Publications Sub Committee - Rick Reynolds, Jane Peterson, Jayme Frazier, Lauri Nash, Brad Bruns and Kim Whitney

i.  Chair - Rick Reynolds; Rick and Leah Brock, AVCA Communications Manager, will connect about getting TYC article in Coaching Volleyball magazine

b.  Drills on Video

                        c.  Coaching Volleyball articles

d.  Interested in getting an e-publication together.  If the publications committee can collect the content, Ashley can put it into a newsletter format and distribute as frequently as the committee determines they want it.  Content can consist of press releases, news articles of interest, new content written by a TYC coach, etc.  Ashley suggests a monthly publication that would be distributed to all AVCA member TYC coaches with its purpose being to keep coaches informed about what's going on among all the different groups and additional content specific to TYC coaches.  This has not been done in any of the other collegiate groups and would be an added member benefit for TYC members.

                        a.  Membership Sub Committee

i.  Chair - Michael De Hoog will help Ashley edit the letter that will go out to all AVCA member TYC coaches announcing the membership dues increase.

  • VII. Things to Think About Before March Call

A.  Getting a logo created for the TYC HCC.  Does anyone know someone that could put together some designs for us to vote on?  This would be a great way to create a TYC brand.
