The 2023 Michigan Interscholastic Volleyball Coaches Association Clinic was held on February 24-25 at Midland High School in Midland, Michigan. The "MAC Attack" theme brought out Coach Colleen Munson from Western Michigan University and Coach Mike Gawlik from Central Michigan University and their women's volleyball staffs as well newly minted Oakland University head coach and former CMU staff member Coach Krista Rice as clinic presenters. The entire speaker lineup was absolutely fantastic with representation from high school to D-1 and a wide range of sessions topics both on the court and in the classroom that offered something for everyone - girls coaches and boys coaches. MIVCA Board member, AVCA Diversity Development Team member, and AVCA Diversity Award Class of '18 Dr. Ramona Cox served as the keynote speaker for the MIVCA banquet and general meeting on Saturday and did a fantastic job! Congratulations to this year's MIVCA Hall of Fame inductee Coach Laura Cleveland and the other special recognition honorees. Many thanks to MIVCA Past-President Heather Sawyer and the MIVCA Board for their efforts in putting on a great coaching education and engagement experience for their community. Thank you for being a great partner in advancing the sport of volleyball.

Week 31 – Melissa Curley, Oscoda High School

Melissa Curley goes above and beyond when it comes to her commitment to school and community service and the passion she shows for helping others. She makes an impact in the gym with her girls with her love for the game and helping them grow into skilled players, but that’s just the tip of the ice berg for the impact she and her teams have on what they give back to the community. A few weeks ago. Melissa Curley (current Varsity coach) and Laura Franklin (current 8th grade and former Oscoda Varsity Coach) were awarded the 2023 Spirit of St. Joseph Award for their 10 year, $110,000 + fundraising effort through Volley for a Cure, in memory of Diane Pippin; Franklin’s mother who passed away from cancer. Per Diane’s wishes before passing away from Breast Cancer, al fundraising proceeds have gone to the infusion room at Tawas St. Joseph Hospital. Diane felt the facility was in dire need of updates as she was going through her treatments. Since then, have been many exciting updates that this fundraising effort has had a direct effect with such as a new bathroom within the unit, updates to the overall appearance of the until and contribution towards a new mobile mammography bus. We want to recognize Melissa for her generous heart and community service as she makes her coaching an avenue to help not only her athletes in a sport they love, but giving back to the community and teaching and including her athletes that sport can be used to give back to their school and community in so many unique ways.
