From Army Sports Information
Army assistant volleyball coach Alma Kovaci has been selected to participate in the 2006 NCAA Women Coaches Academy in Denver, Colo., May 30-June 3. Kovaci is one of 25 women coaches in the NCAA selected to attend the academy.
The NCAA Women Coaches Academy provides skills training for coaches at all levels to assist them in being more efficient, productive, resourceful and successful. The academy is designed for women coaches who are ready and willing to increase their individual effectiveness by learning advanced skills and strategies that directly affect their personal and team success. The participants learn skills that are not sport specific, yet ones that are relevant and necessary for coaching responsibilities, beyond X's and O's.
The Women Coaches Academy began in 2002 when the NCAA Committee on Women's Athletics supported an initiative to train, support and retain women coaches. The academy is open to any coach from any sport and any division.
Kovaci is entering her fourth season at West Point after spending a season as an assistant at Centre College following graduation. She is a 2002 graduate of Temple University where she was a standout on the volleyball team earning American Volleyball Coaches Association All-America honors in 1999 and 2000.
