AVCA High School Super Clinic

Due to concerns related to the pandemic, the KVCA has made the difficult decision to not host an in-person clinic this summer. 

In order to fill the void, the AVCA is hosting an online virtual clinic for high school coaches through ZOOM and an online event management software called Accelevents.  The clinic is named the AVCA High School Super Clinic and it will be hosted on August 6 & 7.  For the price of a high school AVCA membership ($85), coaches will receive access to the clinic and a year of memberships to both the AVCA and KVCA.

Workouts should be conducted in “pods” of students with the same 5-10 students working out together weekly to limit overall exposures.

Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees should not participate and be sent home.

Here are the dates outlined in the release:

June 1 - June 14:

  • Coronavirus Dead Period Shifts to Local School System Control.
  • School coaches and representatives can have face-to-face contact with students, but no practices are allowed.
  • All activity on a member school (or affiliated middle school) campus must be approved by the local board of education through the Superintendent of Schools and in consultation with the local health department.


June 15 - July 12:

  • Coaches may conduct activity that complies with the Governor’s Youth Sport Orders for this type of sport.
  • Competition or simulated competition cannot be conducted
  • All activity may not simulate game competition, including variations in the number of players per side.
