Welcome to the Greater Houston Volleyball Coaches Association (GHVCA) Web Site. We are a non-profit incorporation that is dedicated to the growth of volleyball, the recognition of volleyball athletes, and the betterment of volleyball coaches through education and support in the Greater Houston Area. My name is Lyndsay Hodges; I am the head volleyball coach at Clear Falls High School. I have been elected President of the GHVCA by its board members.
As a coaches association, we will offer many opportunities for our members to grow as coaches through a number of clinics that will be provided throughout the year, which will feature speakers from all spectrums of the volleyball coaching community. We also offer our volleyball athletes the recognition that they deserve, giving them more opportunities to be seen and hopefully recruited to the next level. Our annual All Star Games and Clinic is held in February in which we showcase our outstanding senior athletes, but also honor our phenomenal coaches and their knowledge. The athletes not only play in the games, but also demonstrate drills that are presented by the All Star Coaches. The selected All Star Coaches not only coach the games, but also share their knowledge during the morning clinic that goes on before the games begin. This event gives our seniors and our coaches who might not get recognized at the state level an opportunity to be acknowledged at the local level by the efforts of our association. We offer an exceptional clinic in May that offers education in all areas of the game, ranging from the junior high level to the varsity level. College coaches and some of our most successful high school coaches happily share their knowledge and experience with all who attend; we also have some of the most recognized vendors in attendance to offer you some of their best deals. And last but certainly not least, we are proud to acknowledge our up and coming athletes with the selection of the Preseason FAB 50, the Watchlist, and the Preseason Player of the Year. We also acknowledge our Coach of the Year at the culmination of each season, they are recognized at the All Star Games.
We are the first coaches association formed for the betterment of volleyball in the Houston area. Our national affiliate, American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA), supports our local efforts to grow the sport of volleyball. As a growing association our goal and our promise to embrace and develop all levels of coaching – middle school, junior high school, high school, and club in order to make your coaching experience an enjoyable one and to assist you in being the most successful coach you can be.
Best wishes for a GREAT season,
