I think the best gifts for a volleyball player are these: (1) the gift of Play, (2) the gift of Continue Reading

Come See Me! I am Presenting at the AVCA Convention Today

Posted on 15 December 2010 by Chuck Rey

chuck rey avca convention 225x300 Come See Me!  I am Presenting at the AVCA Convention Today volleyballToday is the day of my first presentation at the AVCA Convention here in cold Kansas City, MO.  The presentation starts at 4:30 (CST) in Room KCCC 2503AB.  The topic is AVCA Convention 101: What Every First-Time Attendee Needs to Know.  My intention is to make this the best convention experience for you.

Even if you have attended the convention before, it wouldn’t hurt to have your input for the new-comers as well as make them feel welcome on this initially overwhelming experience. (I believe I already have a couple returning conventioneers in the crowd to heckle me).

Come meet the newest members of the AVCA Convention!

After a great weekend of sweet sixteen and elite eight matches, it leads to the AVCA Convention, held in Kansas City this year, and the Final Four matches.  The year of volleyball parody is evident with only one of the top four seeds making it into the Final Four.  Should we be surprised it’s Penn State?  We should stop doubting Russ Rose and his ability to coach and recruit, but Continue Reading

Seriously, could the NCAA not find a better picture than this for their introduction page on the first day of the tournament?

ncaa volleyball 1st round Does the NCAA not like volleyball? volleyball

It was fun to watch a number of matches online at one time.  Although some webstreaming coverage was not as clear as others, I appreciate being able to watch any match I wanted and for free.  I look forward to doing it again tonight.  Second round matches start at 3:30 EST today.

Here is a link to the NCAA Volleyball website: http://www.ncaa.com/brackets/2010/ncaa_bracket_DI_volleyball_women.html It helps if you have Adobe Flash installed.  Click on the “In Progress” tab and then click on the little camera icon next to the school you want to watch.  Enjoy!
