    • 1. Brief talk on combined championship

    - Talked with Katie Holmes of NCAA - They are in initial phases.  This is all preliminary and haven't discussed in detail, but there is no strong opposition to it, or to anything specific.  Further discussions will continue after the academic year.  DIII not likely to be part of an all-division championship weekend.  Great for sport, but logistically difficult.


    Will be further discussed in June meeting.  Look to survey coaches during the summer when things are slower.  Committee members send out reminders to coaches about survey.


    Undecided where championships will be next year.

  • We are currently in the 10,10 by 10/10 campaign.  And if you don't know what that is, we're looking to raise 1,010 dollars by October 10th for the Coaches 4 Coaches fund.  We're also running a little contest, so any divisional category, so in your case Division II, that raises the most money, one of the coaches that donates from that division will be randomly selected for a free convention membership.  You can donate as little as $10 so please go to our website and donate to help give our young coaches a great start to their career.



    We also have our Spring Conference in LA coming up in a little over the month, and the early bird deadline is this Friday, so make sure you register by then to save some money.  This year's event will be held in conjunction with the NCAA DI-II Men's Volleyball National Championship.  Some of the top coaches in the game will be there including Karch Kiraly, Kevin Hambly, Mick Haley and Mike Sealy just to name a few.  It's always a lot of fun, and it's a little more intimate than the convention so hopefully we'll see you there.



    AVCA Coaches Clinic in Springfield, MA...Mark your calendars and make plans to join us on Saturday, April 28 on the campus of Springfield College! Registration is only $25 and you'll receive top of the line coaching education from some of the best in the game and tickets to the semifinal matches of the NCAA Men's Division III National Championship on Saturday night! Complete schedule coming soon.



    We also have the 2011 Convention DVD's in our product store ready to order and ship, so check them out.  At the risk of sounding like a cheesy car salesman, they really are the lowest prices you can find.
