Due to the outstanding interest in our Mentoring Program, we will be keeping registration open for potential mentors through Friday, August 21. The number of mentee applicants has exceeded the amount of mentors that we currently have available.
Become a Mentee:
As the number of AVCA mentors is limited, mentees will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. All mentee applications received that exceed the number of available mentors will be placed on a waiting list and not guaranteed a mentor. Click on the link below to fill out a mentee application.

Become a Mentor:
The AVCA is always looking to add new mentors to the program. As the amount of interested mentees increases, new mentors are needed to accommodate as many mentees as possible. If you are an active AVCA member, and are interested in sharing your time and talents with fellow coaches please apply as a mentor. Click on the link below to register!

About the AVCA Coaches Mentoring Program:
The AVCA Coaches Mentoring Program was launched in Fall 2010. This program has been developed to allow experienced coaches to share their knowledge and talents with fellow coaches in the volleyball community. The AVCA hopes to present mentees with an opportunity for career and personal growth while offering mentors an outlet through which to provide guidance.
Coaches with an active AVCA membership are eligible to participate in the program. Once the registration period has closed, the AVCA will match people according to similar areas of interest. The AVCA recommends that pairs communicate briefly once a week during the official mentor/mentee year-long relationship.
For those participants attending the 2015 AVCA Annual Convention in Omaha, Nebraska, an AVCA Coaches Mentoring Program Reception will be held to allow the mentors and mentees a chance to meet early in the Convention week. The AVCA encourages the mentee to "shadow" the mentor for a day during Convention, and/or join them for events, such as the banquets or NCAA matches.
