Coach Bre Johnson of Marshall High School was selected as one of the speakers at the AVCA national convention to be held in Columbus, OH December 14th-18th.  She will be presenting on Strength & Conditioning and Youth Volleyball Training.  Coach Johnson just wrapped up her camp this past week at Marshall High School where she had 25 kids attend the age 3 through 2nd grade camp.  One of the camp favorite drills is teaching the kids to do their approach, reach high and swing at a helium balloon.  Each balloon is measured to the right height for the individual kid then tied to a washer.  The kids had a blast doing the drill, they learned to hit with their elbow high and as a bonus they all got to take their balloon home!

The National High School Athletic Coaches Association named Jodi Manore ~ Bedford Coach ~ National Coach of the Year 2016 for Volleyball.

Announcement was made at National Convention, June 25 ~ Louisville, Kentucky.

The fact that on September 4, 2015 Jodi recorded her 1,833 win as a head coach, earned her the landmark of the highest total number of wins of any coach in the nation for high school Volleyball.
"It's humbling," Manore said.  "Obviously I'm proud, but it's never been about me.  It's about the kids."

Manore has been coaching at Bedford for 31 years, and plans to continue for a few more years.
from Monroe News.

MIVCA Past President Angie DelMorone stated "Jodi has contributed so much to our sport at so many different levels, in so many different capacities.  So well deserved."

Michigan and MIVCA are lucky to have our Coach recognized on a National level.

COACHES said: “Mark Rosen was OUTSTANDING.”
“Really liked ALL the speakers I listened to and cannot wait to watch video on those I missed!” 
             “Enjoyed seeing the higher level players demonstrate during the sessions.”
“WOW, what a clinic! I haven't been in a few years and forgot how much information you can pack into and take away from the clinic.”

"MICHIGAN STRONG" reflects the impact the 2016 MIVCA CLINIC will have on coaches and players around the state this season.  The Annual MIVCA CLINIC hit a four year high with over 290 participants.  Mark Rosen's expertise and his ability to connect with his audience left coaches wanting more from each session.  Whether it was Training the Transition Game, 6 on 6 Competitive Games, Using Data to Improve the Team, Winning the Passing Game or Drills Developing the Younger Player; Mark, his staff and his NCAA Elite players assisted coaches from around the state in becoming better coaches for their players.    

The addition of 12 other outstanding clinicians from the collegiate, high school and club ranks provided us with critical sessions from Building a Positive Team Culture, Attack Error Correction, Blocking, Intentional Coaching, Ways to Communicate with our Players, Conditioning and Weight Training and Team Building. The clinicians were able to touch on various styles of coaching and aspects of the game to improve our level coaching.  Our 45 demonstrators from four collegiate programs (U of M, EMU, Concordia and Madonna), and four high school programs (Ann Arbor Huron, Ann Arbor Gabriel Richard, South Lyon and Garden City) rounded out our "PURE Michigan" experience.

Thank you MIVCA coaches for participating in the 2016 MIVCA Clinic; this clinic was a success because of you.  Remember to support our sponsors Baden and Schelde as well as the charitable organizations Side Out and Teal Attack throughout the year. MIVCA has an affiliate partnership with AVCA (American Volleyball Coaches Association).  AVCA is our national professional organization that has some outstanding educational resources and programs available to members, so if you are not a member, please consider joining to take advantage of their programs. We want to remind coaches that the sessions were videotaped by the Art of Coaching, so if you missed a session, go online to access them.
