65th Annual Boyce Awards Banquet

Each year at the site of the USA Volleyball Open Championships the tournament is preceeded by a set of national meetings for the Regional Volleyball Association Assembly (the Commissioners of the 40 Regions), the Junior Assembly (the representatives from the Regions meeting to discuss junior division operations at the national level), the Official's Assembly (leadership from the official's division of all the Regions) and the USA Volleyball Board of Directors. The end of the meetings and the kick off of the Open tournament is the annual Dorothy C Boyce Awards Banquet. This banquet honors several outstanding people in differing portions of volleyball.

This year the Boyce Moment was a celebration of three 3-peats that took place in the collegiate women's volleyball world this season. Penn State (Head Coach Russ Rose) - Division 1, Concordia St. Paul (Head Coach Brady Starkey) - Division 2 and Fresno Pacific (Head Coach Dennis Janzen) - NAIA were all honored for their program's successes.

As a part of the Boyce Banquet the local Region is given the honor of Saluting some people in the Region that have made an impression on local volleyball. The Arizona Region Salute included 46 influential volleyball contributors to Arizona volleyball. Not all were in attendance but all are given a tip of the hat for what they did to advance volleyball in the Arizona Region - either through the Region or as part of a school, club or collegiate program. Here is the list of the Arizona Region Salute > > >
