Hokies' Wilson to present at 2017 AVCA Convention

BLACKSBURG – Virginia Tech head coach Jill Wilson will be presenting at the 2017 American Volleyball Coaches Association Convention (AVCA) from December 13-17 in Kansas City, Missouri. The annual event is the largest gathering of volleyball coaches in the world for education, networking, and social events.

Wilson will be presenting on a panel about recruiting issues in the college game as just one of about 100 presenters from across the globe. Industry leaders and coaches from every level of the sport for both genders in indoor and beach will converge on the Kansas City Convention Center to instruct and learn from their peers.

USA Women’s and Men’s National Team Head Coaches Karch Kiraly and John Speraw have sessions, and four-time Olympic Medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings will meet attendees and take pictures. In addition, club, high school, and college coaching legends have on-court presentations and panel discussions focusing on the on-court technical aspect of the sport as well as off-court issues.

Kansas City will be the epicenter of volleyball in the United States in December, where it will also serve as the site for the NCAA Championship and the Under Armour High School All-America Match & Skills Competition at the Sprint Center. Also, the best college volleyball players and the top coaches in the country will be honored at the AVCA All-America/Players of the Year Banquet and Jostens Coaches Honors Luncheon, respectively.

With over 2,500 coaches, administrators, and exhibitors expected to be in attendance, this convention is widely regarded as a must-attend in the volleyball community. Over 300 high school volleyball players will be there for a weekend of education and participate in the showcase to display their skills in front of hundreds of college coaches.
