Volleyball Alberta hosted their 1st Annual Coach and Referee Symposium on December 14, 2019 at Mount Royal University in Calgary, AB. 

This multi-stream symposium brought together Alberta’s volleyball coach and referee community for a day of professional development and sharing of best practices.  As leaders in the volleyball community within Alberta, participating coaches and referees had the opportunity to learn from each other and from leading experts in their respective fields. 

The 2019 Coach and Referee Symposium featured a coach education stream and a referee education stream, as well as combined sessions throughout the day where all participants came together to share experiences and best practices.
