Bryce Roderick Lone Inductee into NJCAA Volleyball Hall of Fame for 2013
November 12, 2013
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Current NJCAA Second Vice-President for Women Bryce Roderick has been tabbed for induction into the NJCAA Volleyball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Roderick is this year’s lone inductee and will be honored at the opening ceremonies of the NJCAA Division I Volleyball Championship in Casper, Wyo., on Nov. 20th.
Roderick has long been an advocate for volleyball and other women’s sports in the NJCAA. From 1996 to 2008, Roderick served as the Region 6 (Kansas) Women’s Director and was a member of the NJCAA Division I Volleyball Committee assisting with formulation of the national rankings and seeding of the championship tournament. His efforts during this time led to changes to all three volleyball national championships by splitting existing regions into two districts. The rule change has since made it possible for two teams from the same region to advance to the national tournament.
He was then elected to his current position of the 2nd Vice President of the NJCAA’s Women’s Division in 2009 and continues to foster the sport of volleyball as the chair of the organization’s championship events committee, which carefully reviews and selects the sites of all national tournaments for the NJCAA.
In addition to his duties with the NJCAA, Roderick has been the commissioner of the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference (KJCCC) since 2003. A strong leader for the sport of volleyball at the regional and national levels, he has attended every KJCCC and Region 6 Volleyball Tournament and has represented the NJCAA at either the Division I or Division II national championship since 1996.
