The AVCA presented the inaugural Thirty Under 30 Awards in 2009. This award was created to honor thirty of the up-and-coming volleyball coaches under 30 years old in the sport at all levels of the game. Although anyone can make a nomination, the nominee has to be an AVCA member. The inaugural Thirty Under 30 class was announced in the February/March 2009 edition of Coaching Volleyball.
Nominations for the 2014 AVCA Thirty Under 30 Award are now closed. Thank you to all those that completed a nomination.
