Good Afternoon Everyone,
I know I am late to get this out to you as the new District 2 President, and had it not been for Bill calling and telling me to get a move on it may have never been done, thanks Bill! However, my name is Dan Coughlin, I am the Head Coach at Gilmour Academy. I look forward to the opportunity of making a positive impact on our district! I have been involved in High School Volleyball for the past 23 years and I am hoping I can make some kind of an impact to help. As always, membership will be HUGE, remember, the more coaches that show to the District meetings the more Student Athletes that can be recognized on the District and State Level and that looks great for us as well. Please, if there is anything I can help with please feel free to reach out. My Contact email is coughlind@gilmour.
A couple of initial events & things to keep your eye out for as we move into the 2018 season:
- A facebook page has been created and the address is OHSVCA DISTRICT 2 please become part of it.
- In order to raise money for Coaches for Coaches this year – we have decided to host a District 2 Team scrimmage on Friday, August 10 at Gilmour Academy (Varsity ONLY @ this time). Based on the amount of District 2 teams that would like to participate in this DONATION BASED scrimmage, we will divide the team accordingly based on competition. We have 8 Courts at Gilmour, so based on the numbers of teams who want to participate we may need a second location.
- All-District Meeting will be held on Sunday, October 21st at Gilmour Academy– AM Time TBD, I will work on Breakfast this year!
- And lastly, I was look to have a District 2 Cookout at Gilmour the last week of July… Please email me if this would be an attended event by you. Save the date of July 30th at 6pm. If we don’t have enough interest we will bag it the idea.
Well, I think this will do for now. Feel free to fire me an email in regards to these dates and possible gatherings so I know whether to keep them or not.
Best wishes to you all!
Congratulations to our new President Dan Coughlin from Gilmour and our new Vice President Maggie Lombardi from Perry

The meeting THIS year for All Star Voting meeting was held on October 22, 2017 at 9:30 am at Independence High School. The morning will began at 9:30 am with a general meeting with all four divisions and then we will break up into division to vote for District Teams. To nominate players you must use the forms from the OHSVCA website (they are also on the District 2 page if you cannot locate them). Please be sure to bring enough copies for all coaches (Division I=25, Division II=20, Division III=15, and Division IV=10). If you are not a member of OHSVCA you are not able to access this form online, if you are a member, log in www.ohsvca.org to access the forms.
It is very important that you join the association before October 1. The yearly membership fee is $25. Also, based on the vote from the 2008 meeting we will have a $10 voting fee at our meeting. This fee will be used to support our scholarship fund. If you are sending someone in your place, they must be a member in order to nominate and vote. Please mail checks made payable to District 2 OHSVCA before October 1 to District 2 Treasurer Carolyn Balis Valley Forge High School, 9999 Independence Blvd. Parma Heights OH 44130. You may also bring the form with you to the meeting.
We will select 1st team, 2nd team, honorable mention, and MVP athletes as well as Coach of the year for the individual division. Your vote counts. We also hold an annual senior all-star match where the best seniors get to compete and gain exposure from local college coaches. We will select scholar athletes and award them with scholarship money for college based upon their academic and athletic achievements. Please bring your scholarship nominations on the form from the OHSVCA website to the meeting. Your athletes do not need to include an essay. We will NOT accept any after the meeting!
Without membership, you will not be able to nominate your athletes. Too many great athletes go unnoticed because their coaches are not members of District 2 OHSVCA. Please consider joining for the season.
It is also important to consider joining the OHSVCA if you are not a member already. With membership, you will be able to nominate your players for All-State. Without membership to these associations, your players will NOT be selected for the State All-Star teams or matches. If you are interested you may contact me or visit their website at www.ohsvca.org.
