I will be there too, as will Debbie Hunter, USA Coaching Education
Director, Doug Beal, Margie Mara USAV Managing Director of Programs, and
National Team staff. I just left a meeting with Sandy Vivas, Executive
Director of the AVCA and others (the Sports Medicine and Performance
Commission) andj they will be on the internet next month at
I'd like to meet you face to face and get you to work with the AVCA to
opitimize getting the NCAA stats up faster. My proposal to them is to use
the NCAA men's programs, as 63 of them, to use the internet for posting,
using an FTP site for compliling, not the RSV - that is where the
summaries would go. I also think that a new newsgroup just for collegiate
volleyball would clean up part of RSV from the top end. That is part of
what I'd like the AVCA to help us with.
Thanks for all you are posting.
