Throughout October and early November, the OVA was able to deliver a series of coach development webinars to offer Ontario coaches additional insight and resources they could apply to their regiments to fit the situation we all find ourselves in currently and for when the volleyball landscape resumes the sense of normalcy as we knew it. A total of 12 presenters from various institutions and organizations lead discussions on topics that spanned from practice specifics to focusing on the mind and mental health.
The webinar series had 253 unique attendees across all presentations and a total of 14 hours worth of content was delivered. Made possible in part by the Canadian Red Cross Emergency Support grant, the coach webinars were one initiative to provide coaches opportunities for further development and maintaining engagement in volleyball during these challenging times, which was realized in the larger Coach Academy project. The recordings from this recent webinar series can be accessed in the Academy where you will also find additional webinars/content and coaching resources and videos. Coach Academy content will be uploaded regularly to keep Ontario coaches up-to-date on resources needed to help navigate volleyball as developments are made that impact the sport.
All coaches who are registered in the OVA Membership Registration System (MRS) received an invite via email to activate their Coach Academy accounts and access the Academy. If you are a coach and didn’t receive the invite, please contact OVA’s Operations Coordinator Oklend Llakaj to gain access.
If you have recently registered as a coach in the MRS, access to the Academy will be granted in two business days.
The OVA would like to thank all of the presenters and coaches who attended the webinars.
"Thank you for organizing and hosting the webinars over the past few weeks. They were very valuable and the speakers we excellent.”
